A 26 year old lady has been arrested after she allegedly stabs her ex boyfriend to death during an argument over sharing of N3000, at Ogunaike area of Shangisha, Lagos.
According to source, the murder suspect who is identified as Miss Oluwatoyin Joshua, told journalists at the Lagos State Police Command where she was paraded, that an internet fraudster whose identity she gave as simply as Olalekan, that was travelling on February 26, 2022, gave her N3000.
According to the lady, Olalekan instructed her to give her ex boyfriend, Olayinka Adebayo, N2000 out of the amount but he insisted on taking the whole money.
The suspect claimed to have regretted her action and said that she killed her ex boyfriend in self-defence.
“When I went to give Adebayo his share, he told me I lied about the sharing formula and insisted on collecting the whole N3000. I dropped his share on the table but he threw it back at me.
“He called the man that gave us the money on the phone, and before I knew it, he started beating me. I ran to an elderly man to report Adebayo to him and he said I should leave the place.
“Yet, Adebayo came to my place and continued beating me. When I attempted to run, he hit a broken tile on my head. It was at that point that I rushed to the kitchen to get a knife and stabbed him in the neck.
“He was rushed to the hospital and I paid the bill. Unfortunately, he died two hours later. I regret my action”.
