Man Brutally Stabs Wife To Death Over Paternity Of Kids, Kills Himself
A man identified as Femi Alli who resided at Victory Park Estate in Lekki, Lagos, has killed himself after stabbing his wife, Olamide, to death on Sunday, June 21.
According to residents of the estate, the couple moved into the estate three weeks ago with their two young children.
However, the residents said not much was known about the couple until Saturday night, a day before the murder-suicide, when they were spotted jogging together.
The man reportedly began to question the paternity of their second child after a mandatory DNA test they took for their Canadian visa showed that he was not the father of the child.
He then questioned his wife, which led to him stabbing her to death, and then taking his own life.
Femi allegedly tied her hands and taped her mouth, then began to uproot her braids with pliers.
He then allegedly stabbed her viciously in the eyes, then about 11 times all over her body.
Following the horrendous murder, he is said to have drank sniper in an act of suicide.
On Sunday afternoon, neighbors close to the couple’s apartment heard loud music emanating from their home and this lasted for many hours.
The neighbors went to the estate office to complain about the loud music and insisted the estate officials go there and caution the couple.
The estate authorities went to the couple’s compound to appeal to them to turn down the volume of the music coming from their apartment.
They however met with the wife’s sister who was downstairs with the couple’s children. The sister immediately went upstairs so she can inform her sister and the husband about the complaint laid by the estate authorities. She knocked several times but got no response.
After waiting for so long, the sister and the estate officials decided to pull the door down. They were greeted by a horrific sight.
Apparently, the man had killed his wife. It is believed it was pre-meditated because when they got into the room, they saw different kinds of knives there. The woman’s legs and hands were bound and her mouth shut with a cellotape. The husband used a clipper to shave her hair, stabbed her head, her eyes, stabbed her multiple times with different knives.
The scene was nothing short of a horror movie.
