WHAT could have led a young lover to stab his girlfriend to death with a broken bottle?
This is a nut for the police to crack in the riverside of Bomadi, headquarters of Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State, where a lover boy, identified as Lucky Ndakwe, allegedly stabbed his girlfriend to death with a broken bottle.
The incident, according to a reliable source, subsequently, threw the entire town into confusion last Tuesday night as aggrieved youths took to the streets to demand justice for the deceased.
The assailant, Ndukwe, it was gathered, confronted his girlfriend at about 7.30 p.m. at the town's waterside over suspicion of cheating on him.
The issue was said to have degenerated to some shouting match between the two after which anger took the better part of the jealous lover boy who was said to rain some slaps on the girl.
The slaps, it was gathered, came as a result of the lady's attempt to walk out on her lover.
The source said "It was when the girl was trying to fight back that the boy rushed for a bottle of beer, hit it on her head before stabbing the girl. When he saw that the girl was bleeding profusely, he attempted to run but was apprehended by the people around."
It was gathered that the girl died on her way to hospital.
The news of the lady's demise subsequently led to protests by the youth in the area.
"There was confusion everywhere because the people who were angry and wanted to lynch the young man were prevented by security operatives.
The people were angry because they felt the girl tried to help the boy in his business and did not deserve to be treated that way by the boy," the eyewitness said.
