A married man simply known as Tony, has been stabbed to death by his mistress who accommodated him in her house in Rivers state.
It was gathered that the deceased went to camp in her apartment in an estate along the NTA/Apara link road in Port Harcourt, after having an issue with his wife in Enugu.
The man and his side chic were said to have had an altercation on Friday, December 22 , and this led to Tony beating her up. In an attempt to defend herself, the girlfriend stabbed him in the neck.
A source disclosed that they continued in the fight without minding the state of the injury sustained by the man, dragging themselves into the street.
However, Tony was said to have collapsed after losing a lot of blood due to the injury. When neighbours rushed him to the hospital, he was said to have died on the way.
The source said; “Tony and his girlfriend had an argument that fateful night which resulted in a fight between them. There are reports that Tony had always been assaulting the lady for some time and this time around, I think in an attempt to defend herself, the lady stabbed him in the neck.
They carried on with the fight and dragged themselves into the street as no one was willing to interfere in their fight. Tony later collapsed after losing lots of blood from the injury he sustained. When he was rushed to the hospital, he went cold on the way and gave up the ghost before they could get to the hospital.
I also heard that he and his wife in Enugu are in a long divorce battle maybe because of some issues relating to domestic violence.”
Spokesperson of the Rivers State Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, confirmed the incident, and said the suspect had been taken into custody and would be prosecuted as soon as the investigation is concluded.
She said; “The incident happened. The suspect is in police custody and she is currently undergoing investigation. She will be prosecuted as soon as the investigation is concluded.”
