A middle-age man, Dr. Best Origboshe has stabbed his live-in-lover, Bolatito Oduoala to death over allegations of infidelity.
Late Bolatito, a Post Graduate (PGD) student of the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna died as a result of injuries sustained when she was stabbed by her lover, Dr. Best Origboshe during a fight.
Bolatito and Best, investigations revealed have been living together as lovers on the agreement that they would get married after she is done with her PGD Programme.
But lately, the deceased discovered that her man, Best Origboshe who works at, Louis and Paris foundation International, Minna Niger started having issues as she discovered that her man was keeping girl-friends and therefore decided to confront him.
For daring to challenge him, our correspondent gathered that, Dr. Best Origboshe did not deny nor agree that he was flirting with other girls but instead threatened to end the relationship if she, Bolatito dares to question his randy life style after all he was not married to her.
It was learnt that the alleged unfaithfulness by Best became a source of constant quarrel between the two erstwhile lovers, till the ill-fated day when late Bolatito in the dead hours of the night questioned his going out with a particular student of FUT, Minna which did not go down well with Dr. Best.
Once again, Best questioned the rationale behind her curiosity and why the deceased should monitor his movements and people he goes out with because, they were not yet married and there is possibility that they will never become ‘couples’, the source said.
This however infuriated late Bolatito and what started as mere abuses soon snowballed into a full exchange of blows and threats and the two lovers threatened each other and headed for the kitchen where both decided to use the knife on each other.
Bolatito thereafter died of knife cuts on her breast and neck by her lover, Dr. Best Origboshe who also sustained knife cuts on his arms and stomach and is responding to treatment in a hospital in Minna.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Niger state police command, DSP Bala Elkana confirmed the death of Bolatito and that Dr. Best Origboshe who also sustained cuts in parts of his body is currently responding to treatment.
The PPRO said, “Following a distress call from Bosso Estate, a team of Policemen on patrol rushed to the scene and met one Best Origboshe of Louis and Paris foundation International, Minna and Bolatito Oduoala a Post Graduate student of FUT Minna lying on the floor in a pool blood”.
According to the PPRO, “The woman was stabbed on her neck and breast while the man was stabbed on his stomach. On reaching the Hospital, the Doctor confirmed the woman dead while the man is responding to treatment at the hospital”.
“The victims engage themselves in a scuffle as a result of mere misunderstanding between them”, Bala Elkana said, adding that the case is under investigation by the Homicide section of the State CID and will be charged to Court as soon as investigations is completed.
