A 26-year-old lady, Oluwatoyin Joshua has been arrested for allegedly stabbing her former boyfriend to death.
According to reports, the lady kill her ex-lover during an argument over sharing of N3000, at Ogunaike area of Shangisha, Lagos State.
The murder suspect said 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.
She stated that Olalekan instructed her to give her ex-boyfriend, Olayinka Adebayo, N2000 out of the amount.
But trouble according to her started when Adebayo insisted on taking the whole amount.
According to her, “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.”
