2 Min Read

The Rivers State Police Command has arrested a lady, whose name could not be ascertained as of press time, over the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend identified as Tony.

Rivers Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Grace Iringe-Koko, confirmed the incident and arrest of the suspect.

It was learnt that the incident occurred in an estate along the NTA/Apara link road in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Friday, December 22.

Tony and his girlfriend were said to have had an argument which degenerated into a fight, during which he beat her up and she stabbed him in an apparent effort to defend herself.

A source in the neighbourhood said, “Tony and his girlfriend had an argument that fateful night which resulted in a fight between them. There are reports that Tony had always been assaulting the lady for some time and this time around, I think in an attempt to defend herself, the lady stabbed him in the neck.

“They carried on with the fight and dragged themselves into the street as no one was willing to interfere in their fight. Tony later collapsed after losing lots of blood from the injury he sustained. When he was rushed to the hospital, he went cold on the way and gave up the ghost before they could get to the hospital.

“I also heard that he and his wife in Enugu are in a long divorce battle maybe because of some issues relating to domestic violence.”

Confirming the incident, the Rivers PPRO said, “The incident happened. The suspect is in police custody and she is currently undergoing investigation. She will be prosecuted as soon as investigation is concluded.”
