A man has reportedly killed himself by taking sniper after first killing his lover in a horrifying manner. Residents of the Estate became alarmed after the couple who resided in Victory Park Estate, Lekki, Lagos state, left their music very loud; a move that is now believed to have been a decoy for the murder that was ongoing.
The man identified as Chris Ndukwe, 39, stabbed 25-year-old Olamide Alli multiple times in her head and eyes before drinking sniper. Police are now investigating the cause of the murder-suicide that has left two of their children without parent.
According to neighbors, the man had always questioned the paternity of his second child. However, details surrounding that are still sketchy as of the time of filing this report.
According to an eyewitness, it was a premeditated act, as the man had different types of knife in his possession.
“The neighbors went to the estate office to complain about the loud music and insisted the estate officials go there and caution the couple.
“The estate authorities went to the couple’s compound to appeal to them to turn down the volume of the music coming from their apartment.
“They however met with the wife’s sister who was downstairs with the couple’s children. The sister immediately went upstairs so she can inform her sister and the husband about the complaint laid by the estate authorities. She knocked several times but got no response.
“After waiting for so long, the sister and the estate officials decided to pull the door down. They were greeted by a horrific sight.
“Apparently, the man had killed his wife. It is believed it was pre-meditated because when they got into the room, they saw different kinds of knives there.
“The woman’s legs and hands were bound and her mouth shut with a cellotape. The husband used a clipper to shave her hair, stabbed her head, her eyes, stabbed her multiple times with different knives.”
The source went further to describe the scene of the crime as nothing short of a horror movie.
