A man has lost his life after he was stabbed to death by the son of his lover.
If Osayande Edoigiawerie, a middle-aged man in Benin, the capital of Edo State, had known that death lurked in the corner waiting for him, he could have stayed away from the house of his woman friend at Zabayor Street, on the night of Monday, June 8.
But it could have been his destiny when he was stabbed to death by the woman's son over his dalliance with the younger man's mother after a lot of warning to stay away from her.
According to reports, Edoigiawerie had gone to his lover’s house for his dinner when the boy, who is now on the run, allegedly stabbed him several times with a dagger and he bled to death.
The mother of the young man was said to have raised alarm which attracted people in the area to the scene where they rushed Edoigiawerie to a nearby clinic but he was confirmed dead on arrival.
