A Nigerian man simply identified as Femi, has reportedly stabbed his wife to death, and thereafter committed suicide in their home in Victory Park estate in Lagos state on Sunday, June 21.

According to residents of the estate, the couple moved into the estate three weeks ago with their two young children. Not much was known about the couple but they were spotted jogging together a day before the murder-suicide.

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.

A neighbor who was reported to have spoken on condition of anonymity said: 


“On Sunday afternoon, neighbors close to the couple’s apartment heard loud music emanating from their home and this lasted for many 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.

“The estate authorities went to the couple’s compound to appeal to them to turn down the volume of the music coming from their apartment. They however met with the wife’s sister who was downstairs with the couple’s children. The sister immediately went upstairs so she can inform her sister and the husband about the complaint laid by the estate authorities. She knocked several times but got no response.

“After waiting for so long, the sister and the estate officials decided to pull the door down. They were greeted by a horrific sight.
