A 17-year-old girl, Hannah Osazuwa, has allegedly stabbed her lover, Tomide Akintoye, to death.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the incident happened on Gowon Estate, Lagos State, on Monday.
Although the immediate cause of the incident had yet to be ascertained by our correspondent as of the time of filing this report, comments on the Facebook account of the deceased suggested that they had a history of violence.
The tragic death came three days after Akintoye posted a status update on his Facebook page, Lifeoftomson Seun, wishing Osazuwa a happy birthday.
The post was accompanied by a selfie of the duo cuddling in the doorway, with an inscription, ‘she remains my queen.’
“Baby, on your birthday, I pray that you get whatever your heart desires.
May this special day of yours bring with it God’s blessings and love into your life…. I love you,” he wrote on the Facebook page.
On Saturday, a day after the post, Akintoye took to his timeline again and wrote, “Sometimes, a man needs to die to leave (sic) again.”
On Monday, he was allegedly stabbed to death by Osazuwa.
A friend of Akintoye, Onyenma Chibundu, stated that he had been warned several times to stay away from Osazuwa to no avail.
“Young Tommy, you were told several times to leave this bOOh you took as your GF (girlfriend), you disagreed. Now she has taken your life with her own hands. RIP bro; (I) will forever miss you,” Chibundu wrote on Facebook.
Another friend of the deceased, identified simply as Jnr Slimzy, also corroborated Chibundu’s post, saying he had tried in vain to separate the lovers.
“I also warned him. Why as I travel this thing con happen? God knows best brother,” he stated.
