A man at the Ijeshatedo area of Lagos yesterday made good his threat to kill himself and his lover, after she allegedly jilted him.

Stella Bob-Manuel was said to have been doing her laundry in front of the house where she lived with her father, when her erstwhile lover, Odafe appeared from behind and pounced on her.

He stabbed her with a dagger several times. Not satisfied, he dragged her into her parents room, continued the stabbing until neighbours, who heard her screams forced the door open. Sighting the neighbours, Odafe was said to have stabbed himself.

The lovers were both rushed to the hospital, but Bob-Manuel died while Odafe is still recuperating.
Daily Sun learnt that for three days, Odafe had been threatening to kill himself and Bob-Manuel for reasons best know to him.

But a neighbour claimed that Odafe went amok after Bob-Manuel told him she was no longer interested in the relationship.

The neighbour further alleged that even when Bob-Manuel fell down after receiving several dagger stabs, Odafe had to fall on her body and continued the stabbing before dragging her into the room to lock the door.

According to the neighbours the parents of the girl were not in the room when the incident occurred.
Confirming the incident, police spokesman, Olubode Ajajuni said the suspect, though in hospital, was under police guard to stop him from escaping. He explained that the police was still investigating what led to the incident. He however, added that it was an argument that snowballed into the lethal attack on Bob-Manuel.

Daily Sun gathered that police re-enforcement was drafted to the hospital, where Odafe was recuperating after police got wind that his parents were making moves to smuggle him out of the hospital.
