A 23-year-old woman is currently in police net for stabbing her live-in-lover to death over his refusal to pay for their one-year-old daughter’s birthday ceremony.
The homicide detectives section from Surulere Division of the Lagos State Police Command arrested the lady, Stella Peter, 23, for stabbing a man who is her lover, Mr Bala Haruna, 25, to death.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the command, DSP Bala Elkana, on Tuesday, September 17, disclosed that this was because Haruna refused to release money for the birthday party of the child Stella had for him who just clocked one year.
Bala said that the lady and the man were not married but had been living together at No. 2. Tejuosho Avenue, Surulere in Lagos State for three years.
Elkana said: “An argument ensued between them which turned violent and the woman used a kitchen knife to stab the man in the back which led to his death.
“The woman accused the man of refusing to release money for their daughter’s birthday party.”
The police image-maker said that the homicide detectives section from the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Yaba, had taken over the investigation.
He said that the suspect had confessed to committing the crime and that she would be charged to court for murder.
