A 40-year-old man on Saturday stabbed his girl friend to death during a domestic quarrel over alleged incest along the Agudama suburb of Yenagoa local government Area of Bayelsa State.
The killer-boyfriend, identified as James, stabbed Rita Abalorun, aged 35, in an argument over her allegation that he was having a sexual affair with her sister.
The midday incident occurred at the lovers’ residence in the outskirts of Yenagoa,the state capital.
Eyewitnesses told Daily Times that after stabbing the deceased, the killer-boyfriend rushed the dying lover to a hospital but she died before medical attention could be provided.
An eyewitness, identified as Joshua, said: “On realising the enormity of his action, the man hurriedly arranged a tricycle operator popularly known as Keke NAPEP to convey the deceased to the hospital. Instead of the Keke operator to rush the victim to the hospital, as instructed, he diverted to the Akenfa Police Station and reported the case. It was at the station that they confirmed her dead.”
Daily Times learnt that the suspected killer attempted to flee but was apprehended a few metres away while hiding in a bush.
On close checks, security operatives and angry residents discovered that the boyfriend had attempted to commit suicide by swallowing a dangerous insecticide known as Sniper.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the incident and said the remains of the deceased had been deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa. The suspect was receiving treatment at the hospital under police watch at press time.
