Infidelity has taken the lives of two lovers in Ebonyi State.

A man identified as Friday Njoku reportedly killed himself after stabbing his 25-year-old girlfriend, Cynthia Nwafia, to death.

The incident happened in the girl’s room at Number 5 Amachi Street in Abakaliki, the state capital.

The State’s Police Public Relations Officer, Loveth Oda, who confirmed the incident, said Njoku and Cynthia have been friends for some years and had already began marriage plans.

The man is said to have consulted the lady’s parents informing them of his plans to marry their daughter, he said. That was before Njoku started suspecting that Cynthia was cheating on him.

He was said to have confronted her and when she denied it, he stormed her apartment on the day of the incident and after an argument, stabbed her with her kitchen knife.

Bleeding profusely, she was rushed to the hospital where doctors confirmed her dead.

Realizing the terrible thing he had done, Njoku reportedly ran to his house, and summarily took his own life.

“His corpse was discovered inside his room with blood gushing out of his nose, eyes and ears at 9am the following day.

“Investigations have since been launched into the matter,” the police spokesperson said.
