A 32-year-old driver simply identified as Felix has been allegedly stabbed to death by his lover, Fasilat, in Ikare Akoko area of Ondo State.
According to reports, the deceased was until his death the Deputy Chairman of the Abuja unit of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Ikare branch.
Sources told Vanguard that the deceased had taken the woman to a guest house only for them to disagree on an undisclosed matter.
A source added that Felix was stabbed with a broken bottle and had bites all over his body.
Vanguard gathered that before the ugly incident, the deceased had been warned of an impending danger by a prophet through his wife.
But the deceased was said to have visited the church where the prophecy emanated in anger to warn the prophet to steer clear of his affairs.
The prophet reportedly also warned him to desist from illicit love affairs.
Vanguard, however, gathered that when Felix discovered that his lover was getting violent during the argument, he put a call to one of his friends that he has been stabbed and was on his way to the hospital.
By the time his friend got to the hospital he met him dead.
The police later arrested the suspect following information given by the deceased’s friend.
Police source said the suspect was discovered to be under the influence of drugs as some drugs were recovered from her bag.
But police source also hinted that the suspect alleged that the deceased wanted to r*pe her and in self defence the unexpected occurred.
The corpse of the deceased has been deposited at the General Hospital, Ikare for autopsy.
Police image maker, Wole Ogodo, could not be reached for comment, but a competent police officer confirmed the incident. [Vanguard]
