“I waited 10 years to k!ll buddy who stole my guy,” said a woman jailed for murder in Lagos.

Ofili is accused of brutally killing Glory Okon in her residence at Greenville Estate in the Ajah neighborhood of Lagos.

Anita Ofili, a Nigerian woman who was detained in Lagos after being accused of killing her friend, has admitted to the crime.

Ofili is accused of brutally killing Glory Okon in her residence at Greenville Estate in the Ajah neighborhood of Lagos.

Ofili stated that she waited ten years to commit the act as part of a revenge plan when asked about the motivation for her deed.

She claimed that ten years ago, her buddy Glory kidnapped her boyfriend, and ever since then, she has been plotting retaliation.

“Glory and I had been good friends for years, but she betrayed that friendship by snatching my boyfriend.”, she said.

The residents of the building were alerted when Ofili’s one-room self-contained apartment shouted for assistance at 1:20 p.m. on March 26.

The building’s occupants reportedly forced the door open to find Ofili slicing Okon’s neck with a kitchen knife.

Sadly, after losing so much blood, the victim, who was taken to the General Hospital on Lagos Island, was declared dead.

Under the condition of anonymity, one of the building’s occupants said:

“The landlord’s daughter was the one that heard the scream. She peeped through the window and saw a masked person stabbing a lady. She rushed and called her father, who alerted other tenants that forced the door open, only to discover that the masked person was Anita Ofili. The whole room was filled with blood. We discovered that the victim was still breathing. We had to tie Ofili’s legs and hands to prevent her from escaping. Before the arrival of the Police, Ofili did not show any sign of remorse. She said she would explain to the Police what happened. She claimed the lady in question was her friend and that her action was in revenge for what her friend did to her.”

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Lagos State Police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said;

“At 5.50p.m., on March 26, a resident of Greenville Estate came to the station to report that he heard someone screaming from the room of one Annie Ofili, that himself and other tenants quickly rushed to the room, forced the door opened only to meet Annie on top of Glory Okon, who came to visit her.

Upon the information, a team of detectives moved to the scene. The suspect was arrested, the knife recovered, while the corpse was deposited at the Mainland General Hospital mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy and preservation. The suspect has been transferred to the SCIID, Yaba, for discreet investigation.”
