A man has reportedly stabbed his rival to death in Lagos after he caught him with his lover making love.
A 27-year old man, David Omoregbe, has been arrested by the police in Lagos State, for allegedly stabbed and killed his rival, Kehinde Owasoye, 25, for snatching his 22-year old lover, Bolodeoku Temisan.
The incident happened at the deceased’s residence at 20, Adeojo Street, Isheri-Oshun, on the outskirts of Lagos when Omoregbe caught Owasoye having s*x with his girlfriend.
Temisan was said to be dating the two men and when they discovered, a fight ensued during which Owasoye was eventually murdered. She was also arrested with Omoregbe and charged with conspiracy and murder before a Yaba Magistrate’s court, Lagos.
According to their neighbours, Temisan was dating both men until Omoregbe later discovered and warned her to stop seeing the other man.
To take charge of the relationship and stamp his authority, Omoregbe, a commuter bus driver decided to sponsor Temisan to learn tailoring.
Despite Omoregbe’s efforts, Temisan did not stop seeing Owasoye.
On the day the incident happened, Omoregbe was told that Temisan was at Owasoye’s house. He went there to find out if it was so, and caught them in bed. Omoregbe couldn’t control his anger and he allegedly took a pair of scissors and stabbed Owasoye. And before he could be rushed to a hospital, he died.
Omoregbe and Temisan were arrested by the police at Isheri-Oshun division before the matter was later transferred to state Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba.
They are now facing a charge of murder contrary to sections 221 and 231 of the Criminal Code Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.
The presiding magistrate, Mrs. M. O. Tanimola ordered them to be remanded in prison and their case file duplicated for Director of Public Prosecutions, DPP’s advice.
