Jealous Lover Stabs 50-year Old Girlfriend to Death After Argument Over Flirting With Customer in Lagos

A jealous lover, Victor Dadeowo, has been arrested by the Police for allegedly stabbing his 50-year-old girlfriend, Ajoke Esomojumi to death during a disagreement at the deceased’s shop on Ikorodu Road, Lagos state.

The argument ensued between the lovebirds last Sunday evening while they were at the victim’s shop, who sold sachet alcohol.

According to PUNCH, Esomojumi, and a customer were reportedly exchanging banter during which the latter jokingly smacked her buttocks – an act Dadeowo was said to have interpreted as romantic overtures.

Dadeowo was said to have e picked a quarrel with Esomojumi over the joke and complained bitterly until she closed the shop that night.

He followed Esomojumi to her residence on Church Street, Ajegunle and resumed the argument which reportedly dragged to midnight when he allegedly stabbed her in the stomach.

PUNCH reported that a resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said neighbours warned the woman of an imminent danger as the dispute intensified.

He said, “The woman was no longer married and lived alone. She and the man had been in a relationship for some time and he usually went to her shop. That Sunday, I learnt a customer while playing with her in his presence smacked her buttocks and he picked an offence.

“He accused the woman of being unfaithful and they quarrelled over it. It was when they returned home that night and started quarrelling again that people knew the cause of their disagreement. When things were getting out of hand, neighbours advised her to be careful and that the man could kill her.

“It was around 2am (on Monday) that she screamed and some people rushed out to find out what the matter was. By the time they got to her apartment, she was in a pool of blood.”

A source disclosed that Esomujimi died afterwards and her son, who resides within the neighbourhood, was alerted to the incident.

The case was said to have been reported to the police at the Owode Onirin division who arrested the suspect.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, who confirmed the alleged murder, said Dadeowo had been transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for further investigation.

He said, “On January 31, around 2.30am, the woman was stabbed in the stomach by her lover, Victor Dadeowo inside the victim’s room. The incident happened during a heated argument between her and her male lover.

“Following a report made at the Owode Onirin Police Division, detectives immediately swung into action, visited the scene and arrested the suspect in his hideout. The body of the deceased was recovered and deposited at the Yaba Mainland Hospital morgue for autopsy. The case has since been transferred to the SCIID for diligent investigation on the directive of the Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi.”
