Ogun state police have arrested a 22-year-old Islamic gospel singer, Monsurat Yusuf, aka Alhaja Saudi, who allegedly stabbed her boyfriend, Moses Eric, to death.
According to a report on Pulse, Monsurat committed the act because of a dream she had in which her 20-year-old boyfriend attacked her.
The night before the incident, the singer had a dream where Moses slapped her and when she woke up, she told him about it. He was said to have laughed off the dream and they had a heated argument.
In anger, she reportedly grabbed a knife, which she used to stab him in the heart and he bled to death.
The police public relations officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, disclosed that the incident took place on March 17, 2015, at the ICT Polytechnic where the two lovers were students.
The father of the deceased, Emoye Eric, said he had no idea his son had a girlfriend.
He wondered what could have transpired between the lovers that would degenerate to her stabbing him to death, adding that the dream was the beginning of the problem.
“The briefing I got from the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), is that the lady said she dreamt that my son slapped him in her dream.
My son never told she was his girlfriend. What my son told me was that the lady is a gospel musician. My son too plays band in our churches. They both have interest in music. I guessed that was what brought them together,” he said.
There have been other incidents recently of women killing the men in their lives.
On February 25, an 18-year-old newly-wedded girl, Rahma Hussaini, murdered her 24-year-old husband, Basiru Tijjani, at Darmunawa quarters, Kano state.
