Pregnant lady stabs lover to death
A pregnant lady has stabbed her lover to death in Ochiagha Street, Nkpor, near Onitsha, in the Idemili Local Government Area of Anambra State.
25-year-old Onyinye Chime, has allegedly stabbed her lover, Eleyi Azubuike, to death for asking her to abort her pregnancy.
We learnt that the deceased suggested abortion to Onyinye, which she objected to.
The source said,
“Onyinye was not comfortable with all these. So, she complained to people about it; but we didn’t know she would act this way. She went to the extreme”.
Haruna Mohammed, the state Police Public Relations Officer confirmed the incident. He said,
“There was a report of alleged murder of one Eleyi Azubuike, 29, of Ochiagha Street, Nkpor, in the Idemili North LGA of Anambra State by his girlfriend, one Onyinye, 25, of same Ochiagha Street, Nkpor, inside his room.
Police detectives attached to Ogidi division visited the scene and rushed the victim, who was found in a pool of blood, to Iyi Enu Mission Hospital, Ogidi, for medical attention, where he was certified dead by a medical doctor.
The corpse was deposited at the hospital’s mortuary for an autopsy.
A careful observation of the deceased’s body revealed stab wounds on his chest, while a bloodstained kitchen knife was recovered as an exhibit at the scene.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased allegedly impregnated the suspect and wanted an abortion, which she declined and demanded some money for her upkeep, which the deceased refused to oblige.
That eventually led to a scuffle which resulted in the man being stabbed to death.”
