24 years old Blessing Edeh, has stabbed her boyfriend Edet Ebong, to death. In Lekki area of Lagos state.
Blessing, who hails from Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, alleged that her boyfriend Edet, died as a result of being too suspicious and jealous.
Edet who is 33 year old, is a truck driver. He had moved into his girlfriend’s house at Falana Street, Ogombo, Lekki, after they both agreed to marry.
According to Punch Metro, The pair, have been dating for the past one year and six months.
It was learnt that one the day of Edet’s death, he had returned from work late in the night, and asked his partner(Blessing) to prepare food for him, but Blessing, started rendering abuses on him, and it resulted to a fight.
During the resultant fight, Blessing, allegedly stabbed Edet in the stomach, and he died after being taken to a hospital in the area.
The matter was reported at the Ogombo Police Division and was subsequently transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba.
Edeh told PUNCH Metro that she killed Ebong, saying the victim was drunk on the night of the incident.
She said, “On the fateful day, August 18, he came back from work and was drunk. He said I was messing around and sleeping with other men. He demanded the ring that he gave me, and I told him I could not find it. I later told him it was on the table and he should go and pick it.
“He became angry and broke the mirror on the wall and we started fighting. He used part of it to cut me in the eye, and I stabbed him in the
stomach with one of the splinters.”
A police source told PUNCH Metro that the suspect stabbed the victim with a kitchen knife, and not a glass splinter as she claimed.
He said the victim’s entrails were exposed after the attack, adding that he died a day after the incident.
“The fight started after he returned from work and asked her to prepare noodles. She began to abuse him that he was irresponsible. She said
she was the one housing and feeding him, while he did nothing. That made the man angry. He asked for the engagement ring he gave her, and she asked him to pick it from the table. And that started the fight.
“She picked a kitchen knife and stabbed him in the stomach, exposing his intestines. He died the
next day,” he said.
