A young lady who decided to accommodate her ex-lover's stranded friend was almost stabbed to death by the same man who is now on the run.
This happened when a man, identified as Mandela Onyinyechukwu Bamas, severely stabbed her almost to the point of death after stealing her money, phone and jewelry.
This sordid and gruesome act was brought to public notice by a Facebook user, Edward Onoriode, who is soliciting the support of the general public to trace and arrest the suspect who is currently on the run.
This is how Onoriode captured the scenario on his wall:
"This is a case of life and death.
Precious is the name of the woman in the picture below. Precious is a Facebook friend who poured out her heart to me on phone yesterday for more than 2 hours.
Her story is so emotional, heartbreaking and really touching. She cried heavily while explaining her ordeal to me and I couldn't console her but to cry with her also.
I'm begging kind hearted Nigerians to come to her aid; lawyers, Police authority, human right activists, NGOs, well meaning Nigerians, etc, to please contact me so the culprit of this wicked act will be apprehended, and made to face the full wrath of the law.
Precious accommodated this man who goes by the name 'Mandela Onyinyechukwu Bamas' for two weeks in her apartment at Ilorin, Kwara State.
Precious and Mandela are not dating but are just mere friends. Mandela and Precious' ex-boy friend, Lanre, are childhood friends before this incident occurred.
According to Precious, Mandela called her on phone that he'd travel down to Kwara State for a project he's about to supervise and will want Precious to accommodate him for two weeks to cut cost on accommodation till the project is completed which Precious refused initially.
But after much pressure and begging on phone, Precious conceded to Mandele plea.
How did Precious know Mandela? Mandela and Precious' ex-boyfriend Lanre, are childhood friends. Lanre often brought Mandela to Precious' house. That's how Precious came to know Mandela.
But before all this incident, Lanre and Mandela were not on talking terms. Lanre was not even aware that Precious accommodated Mandela because they had ended their relationship.
When Mandela arrived Kwara State as promised but not to carried out any project but to specifically ruin Precious' life. And he almost did.
Mandela successfully hacked into Precious' bank account and made away with N90,000.
How did Mandela hacked into Precious account?
Lanre and Mandela sometimes spent days at Precious apartment when the going was good. Mandela and Lanre sometimes went to the bank to make withdrawal with Precious ATM card, so Mandela was able to memorize Precious ATM pin and account balance.
After Precious and Lanre broke up, Mandela schemed within him to dupe Precious hence, the reason he claimed he had a project to supervise in Kwara and needed Precious to accommodate him.
Unfortunately for Precious, she fell for Mandela's schemes and lies. During Mandela's stay in Precious house, she was furious when she saw various bank alerts on her phone.
Precious went to the bank to file a complaint, and she was informed that she made some online purchase with her account. She was confused because she didn't make any online purchase with her account.
She cried her eyes out when the bank said there was nothing they could do. Two days later, Mandela who had initially solicited for a N25,000 loan from Precious citing that he was financially handicapped, came home with a brand new Tecno boom phone worth over N35,000 and other items.
Precious became suspicious and subsequently told Mandela to vacate her apartment in two days time after Mandela denied knowledge of the missing N90,000.
Mandela moved into Precious neighbour's house within the same compound; her neighbor and a fellow woman.
Precious was furious and threatened with Mandela continuous stay in the compound. She complained to her compound caretaker but nothing was done to see Mandela evicted from the compound completely.
One unfortunate evening, Precious was taking care of her laundry within the compound, when someone moved into Precious room and made away with her iPhone 6 and gold jewelries.
She cried to the police station to file a report but the police at Ilorin were helpless and couldn't recover a two months old iPhone 6 phone valued at over N200,000 and her jewelries.
Precious was sure that Mandela was the person that stole her phone, so she approached Mandela to produce her phone.
According to Precious, Mandela knew the password to her iPhone 6 when things were good between them and within 24 hrs of the missing phone and jewelries, Mandela left the compound.
Few days after the phone incident, Precious was at home watching a movie at about 1am in the morning when she noticed an unusual movement within the compound.
As she came out to see who was moving at such an odd hour, her generating set was switched off and the next thing she could remember was that she was grabbed from behind and stabbed multiple times on her neck.
She struggled to defend herself with all the strength in her but she had already received various degree of injuries from the knife stab on her neck and hand.
When Precious' neighbours came out to see what was happening, they saw Mandela running out of the compound, leaving Precious on her own pool of blood but unluckily for Mandela, his glasses, ATM card and the knife he used in stabbing Precious were left behind at the crime scene.
Precious was rushed to the hospital for emergency medical attention by neighbours and later, she filed a complaint at the nearest police station. But the police at Ilorin where she reported the case to were at a loss on how to apprehend the suspect because he had disappeared into thin air immediately after the crime.
His whereabout can't be traced by the Police till date and till date, Mandela is walking freely and yet to be arrested because he's on the run and no one knows his present location.
Just some days ago, Mandela called Precious with a private number and threatened her to send him some money. According to Precious, Mandela said he'll deal with Precious if she doesn't cooperate.
Precious became scared and had to relocate for her safety. Precious had wanted to keep quiet but with the fresh threat, she's scared of her life and had to approach me for assistance.
Also, Precious said she wants other women who are in similar circumstances to speak out and shouldn't be scared or blackmailed to talk."
"Please Nigerians, Mr. Mandela Onyinyechukwu Bamas must not go unpublished. He needs to be brought to book for this heinous crime.
Well meaning Nigerians should contact me if you're touched and willing to help Precious.
Please tag your friends and share this post till it gets to the relevant authority to save a life and get this wicked man arrested."
The victim who is still recuperating from the vicious attack, has also called on Nigerians to help her get justice as the suspect has been sending her messages saying no one can arrest him because of his family connections.
