A 25-year-old man, Victor Ikegwuonu, has been stabbed to death in Orlu zone, Imo State, for allegedly making a disclosure of lovers’ hot romance to the husband of the lady.
According to a statement by the Imo State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Orlando Ikeokwu, Ikegwuono had allegedly told a 52-year-old Chijioke Anyiam that one Emeka Ezurike was in an illicit affair with his wife. This infuriated Emeka, who stabbed Victor to death.
The statement read: “On Tuesday, operatives of the Divisional Police Headquarters, Orlu, arrested one Emeka Ezuruike, a native of Ubommiri, Emuoba, Rivers State, for killing one Victor Ikegwuonu, of Nduichi, Arondizuogu.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that Victor Ikegwuonwu was said to have informed one Pa Chijioke Anyiam that his wife, Patience Anyiam, aged 30, was involved in a hot romance with Emeka Ezuruike, an affair, which he said had been on for a very long time.
“Sequel to that, Emeka went to see Victor ask him about the allegation. During the enquiry, both of them got into a serious fight and in the process, Emeka stabbed Victor with pieces of broken bottles, which led to Victor’s death.
“The suspect has, however, been arrested and taken into custody while the investigation is ongoing. He will be charged to court accordingly.”
This is coming days after a man simply identified as Kadir stabbed his younger brother, Suleiman, to death for confronting his wife in Auchi, Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State.
It was gathered that trouble started on Friday morning, February 19, when Suleiman scolded Kadir’s wife for being rude to their mother.
Kadir, who was not home when the altercation happened, confronted his younger brother for daring to rebuke his wife when he returned. Their mother was said to have intervened and settled the quarrel between the two siblings.
However, not satisfied, Kadir was said to have revisited the issue later in the day and once again, their mother stepped in and calmed the situation.
Suleiman was said to have put the matter behind him and went about his normal business. Kadir later traced him to where he went to late in the evening, stabbed him and fled.
Suleiman was rushed to the hospital on Friday night where he died on Saturday morning from the injury he sustained during the attack.
