To show how much he loves his woman, a man identified simply as Abbey, has reportedly murdered his rival, named Kehinde, over the affections of a mother of four in Ibadan, Oyo State.
Man Murders Rival Over Mother Of Four
A man who could not stand the fact that another man was also dating his lover, has moved to prove his love by murdering his rival.
The incident, according to the Nigerian Tribune, occurred at Ifedapo zone, Jeje area, Apete, in Ido Local Government Area of the state, and eyewitness say, was as a result of an alleged attack on the deceased by Abbey who waylaid him when he was returning home after he had seen off his friend who visited him.
A witness said:
Kehinde was returning home around 7.00p.m last Friday after seeing off his friend who came to visit him. It was when he got to the front of Abbey’s house that he (Abbey) attacked him and beat him with charm because as soon as he beat Kehinde with that charm, he became unconscious immediately.
We made several efforts to revive him but all proved abortive. We initially sought the help of one native doctor maybe he could be of help but he told us that only the person that used the charm on Kehinde could find solution to it. It was then we decided to take him to the hospital where he was eventually confirmed dead.
Investigations by the Nigerian Tribune, gathered that the attack on the deceased was as a result of the rivalry between Kehinde and Abbey over a mother of four identified as Iya Ayi, who sells local herb drinks (Paraga) around the area.
Though, according to a resident of the area, Iya Ayi was not married to anyone of them, she was having an affair with both of them which was known to Abbey and the late Kehinde.
Another resident of the area told the Nigerian Tribune:
Abbey and Kehinde are boyfriends of Iya Ayi and I believe Abbey was not comfortable with this, that I think led to the attack on Kehinde which resulted in his death.
After the death of Kehinde, an unidentified angry mob in the area set Abbey’s father’s house ablaze when they could not find him. And he has been on the run since then but the Oyo State Police Command has vowed it would do anything to bring him to book.
