A commercial bus driver identified as Daniel Udoh, 38 years, has been arrested by the Nigerian Police Force, Ogun State Command, for allegedly killing one Emaka Umonko, husband to his alleged secret lover.
The tragic drama reportedly occurred at Onipanu, Ifo Local Government Area of the state, after the deceased confronted Udoh when he suspected a secret love affair with his wife.
While the fight was on, the suspect, a commercial driver, allegedly brought out a knife and stabbed the victim several times in his back and chest, following which Umonko collapsed.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Sunday, said the suspect was arrested following a distress call received by the Onipanu Divisional Police Officer.
“The victim, a welder, was rushed to the state hospital, Ota, but was unfortunately pronounced dead by the doctor on duty.
“Upon the distress call, the DPO, Onipanu Division, CSP Bamidele Job, quickly detailed his men to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested, and the knife recovered as an exhibit.
“The remains of the victim were subsequently deposited at the Ifo General Hospital mortuary for post-mortem examination,” he said.
The PPRO said the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, had directed that the suspect be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation to charge him to court.
