After allegedly stabbing a fashion designer, Daniel, to death in the Iwaya region of Lagos State, a married man, simply identified as Keke, has escaped.
The fleeing suspect was claimed to have arrived home from work when one of his neighbors alerted him that his wife and Daniel were having an affair.
To avoid being attacked, Keke and his wife are alleged to have fled their home.
CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the event.
“As soon as the event was reported, police detectives from the Sabo section went to the scene,” he said. The man was transferred to Yaba’s Harvey Road Hospital for medical treatment, but he died while there.
“The body has been deposited at the Yaba Mainland Hospital’s morgue for an autopsy. Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed that the case be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, for diligent investigation. He has also directed that all efforts should be made to arrest the fleeing suspect.”
