Tragedy struck Lekki community of Lagos state on Sunday as a man identified as Femi, stabbed his wife to death, and thereafter committed suicide. He took the actions in their Victory Park estate home.
Residents said the couple moved into the estate three weeks ago with their two young children, therefore not much was known about them before the incident.
However, on Sunday, the man who is said to have always questioned the paternity of their second child, stabbed his wife to death, and then took his own life.
To deceive neighbours while committing the act, Femi was said to have raised the volume of music set in the house so loud that he could hear what was going on in the house for hours.
The neighbors went to the estate office to complain about the loud music and insisted the estate officials go there and caution the couple which later led to the discovery of what the man had done.
It was also said that different types of knives were found in their room while the woman’s legs and hands were bound and her mouth shut with a cello tape. The husband used a clipper to shave her hair, stabbed her head, her eyes, and stabbed her multiple times with different knives.
