Tragedy struck in the Ajegunle, Apapa area of Lagos State, when a 20-year-old woman, identified as Gift Wahab, stabbed her lover, 28-year-old Ebi Amade to death. It was learnt that the incident occurred at the couple’s residence on Fasasi Street, Ajegunle, Apapa, on Thursday, March 19. PUNCH Metro reports:
Our correspondents gathered that the suspect, Wahab, who hailed from Uromi, Edo State, had been living with Ebi since 2013, after she dropped out of secondary school. Ebi hailed from Bayelsa State. The two reportedly had a kid in 2014, who died in December after a brief sickness.
It was learnt that the couple had gone on an outing on Thursday when an argument ensued in the afternoon over feeding money. Wahab, a hairdresser, was said to have stabbed the 28-year-old to death after they got home. Policemen from the Layeni division were alerted by neighbours and she was subsequently arrested.
Speaking with PUNCH Metro, the suspect said she did not intend to kill her lover, adding that she acted in anger.
She said, “We have been together since 2013. My father died and I dropped out of school when I was in SSS 3, and that was when we started dating. “On Thursday, we went out for an event. As we were returning home, I said he should hand me the key to the house and my feeding allowance, but he said no. He explained that he had no money for our feeding.
