Osita Amanunwa a 36 year old trader from Anambra, has stabbed his girlfriend, Onyinyechukwu Alaeto to death for dumping him, and dating another man.
Osita who happens to be a trader at Alaba International market, went to “visit” Onyin as she was fondly called. Upon getting to her house at Iba, he was told that she went to visit a friend at Ajangbadi area of Lagos. Osita hurriedly went to the house.
Investigations revealed that the deceased who also works at Alaba market, was in the compound chatting with her host unknown to her that that will be her last “happy moment”.
According to an eyewitness report, as soon as Onyin saw her ex, the smile on her face vanished. However, she summoned up courage and greeted him, but he hissed and walked away. Minutes later, he returned and beckoned on her to come.
Onyin in her usual manner excused herself and left the compound.
After waiting for a while, her host felt uneasy and decided to check on her. Dreadfully, Onyin was found in an isolated spot in the pool of her own blood with a knife still thrust in her neck.
She was also discovered to have managed to crawl from the isolated spot to an open area. But her strength failed her midway, owing to much loss of blood.
At this point, Osita was nowhere to be found.
Sources say, the duo had a romantic relationship that lasted for six years, a relationship that was to lead to marriage until Osita allegedly raped Onyin’s younger sister.
It was also gathered that Osita who surprisingly is married, had on several occasions beat Onyin publicly, for calling off the relationship, boasting that if he could not have her, nobody else would.
Policemen at Ilemba Hausa were immediately alerted. Unfortunately, no arrest has been made because the suspect’s whereabouts is unknown.
However, the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) where operatives at the Homicide section have reportedly begun investigation.
