Lagos woman in police net for stabbing neighbour to death

A middle-aged woman, Cynthia Aigbondon, has been arrested by men of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly stabbing her neighbour, identified as Bakarat, to death.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this on Tuesday in an interview with NAN.

Hundeyin said the incident was reported at the Ajegunle Police Division at about 9.48 pm on Sunday by the deceased’s husband simply identified as Adio.

He explained that Bakarat had a minor quarrel with the suspect while fetching water from a public tap near their house.

He added that the quarrel, however, resulted in the suspect stabbing Bakarat with a kitchen knife at the left side of her ribs.

”She was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital where the doctors on duty confirmed her dead,” he said.

Hundeyin said that the police had visited the scene of the crime, recovered exhibits and taken photographs.

He added that Bakarat’s corpse had been deposited at the morgue for autopsy and preservation.

In 2023, the state police arrested a 41-year-old man, Tolulope Olowu, for allegedly stabbing his 33-year-old neighbour simply identified as Pablo to death.

Olowu reportedly stabbed Pablo to death following an altercation in a parking space on their street.
