A married man simply identified as Tony, has been stabbed to death by his side chic who he went to camp in her house after having an issue with his wife.
Punch reports that the duo had an altercation on Friday, December 22 in an estate along the NTA/Apara link road in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and this led to him beating her up. In an attempt to defend herself, the girlfriend stabbed him in the neck.
It was gathered that they continued in the fight without minding the state of the injury sustained by Tony, dragging themselves into the street. However, Tony was said to have collapsed after losing blood due to the injury sustained from the stab and when sympathizers rushed him to the hospital, he was said to have died on the way.
A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said;
“Tony and his girlfriend had an argument that fateful night which resulted in a fight between them. There are reports that Tony had always been assaulting the lady for some time and this time around, I think in an attempt to defend herself, the lady stabbed him in the neck.
They carried on with the fight and dragged themselves into the street as no one was willing to interfere in their fight. Tony later collapsed after losing lots of blood from the injury he sustained. When he was rushed to the hospital, he went cold on the way and gave up the ghost before they could get to the hospital.
I also heard that he and his wife in Enugu are in a long divorce battle maybe because of some issues relating to domestic violence.”
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Rivers State Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, said the suspect had been taken into custody and would be prosecuted as soon as the investigation is concluded.
“The incident happened. The suspect is in police custody and she is currently undergoing investigation. She will be prosecuted as soon as the investigation is concluded,” Iringe-Koko said
