A man, Chris Ndukwe, has reportedly committed suicide after stabbing his lover, Olamide Alli, to death at his place of residence on the Victory Point Estate in the Ilasan area of Lagos State.
Although the reasons for Ndukwe’s action remain unclear, It was gathered that the 39-year-old and Olamide had been in a complicated relationship that produced two children and they were living apart in the Ilasan and Ogba areas of the state.
Before the tragic incident, it was learnt that Olamide and her yet-to-be-identified sister visited Ndukwe in his house, and while the children and Olamide’s sister slept in a room, the lovers were said to have slept in another room.
However, a disagreement was said to have ensued between the lovers and Ndukwe allegedly stabbed the 25-year-old to death with knives and allegedly committed suicide by drinking a substance suspected to be an insecticide.
A source said, “We don’t know why he killed her, because the two of them were the only ones in the room. “The man stabbed Olamide with knives and drank an insecticide to kill himself.”
The lovers’ bodies were discovered when the yet-to-be-identified sister went to ask them to tune down the volume of the music emanating from their room.
The Ilasan Police Division was immediately informed and its personnel found Olamide in a pool of her blood, while, Ndukwe was motionless and had a foamy substance coming out of his mouth.
Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said the corpses had been deposited in a morgue for autopsy, adding that the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, had ordered an investigation into the case.
He stated that two blood-stained kitchen knives, two empty bottles of the insecticide, three empty cans of energy drink and a pair of pliers were recovered from the scene of the incident
