Man Stabs His Fiancée To Death, and Commits Suicide
A-39-year-old man, weekend, stabbed his 25-year-old lover to death in an apartment at road 5, House 16a, Victory Point Estate, Ilasan area of Lagos.
Thereafter, he committed suicide by drinking a poisonous substance.
There were, however, different accounts as to why the man, Chris Ndukwe, killed his lover, Alli Olamide, founder of Pearl Academy.
A team of homicide detectives was deployed to the scene, and the crime scene had been preserved for forensic analysis.
Bala Elkana, the Public Relations Officer of Lagos state police command said in a statement that, “The woman was found lying in a pool of blood, with deep cuts on her head, while the man’s mouth was foaming with whitish substance.
“It was alleged that the man stabbed the woman to death with a kitchen knife and thereafter drank some poisonous substances suspected to be Snipper insecticides.
“Two blood-stained kitchen knives, two empty bottles of the poisonous substances, three empty cans of Red Bull energy drink and a plier were recovered from the scene,” Elkana said,
The deputy superintendent of police further said that information gathered from some family members revealed that the couple who were in a relationship for over seven years, though not married, have two boys, ages seven and three.
The relationship is described as complicated, as they were on and off over the years. While the man lives in Victory Point Estate Ilasan, the woman lives in Ogba, he said.
