Until the unfortunate incident, 28-year-old Amazu, an Ijaw man and indigene of Delta State resided with Wahab, 20, a native of Ishan, Edo State at 24 Fasasi Street, Ajegunle, Lagos. Recalling what happened that night, Wahab said: “It happened around 10pm, and I could not even see clearly the severity of the wound he sustained. If only I had known it was going to result to this, I would have left the house for him that night.”
“We both went out that night and before we left, he had taken some alcohol. On our way back, I asked him to give me the key to the house so I could go home fast and rest because I was seriously tired, but he refused. I asked why, and he said because he was very hungry and had no money on him. I told him that we would manage the only N100 I had with me for the night and look up to God on how to survive the next day. He just turned it into something else and said I should never dare talk about that again. The next minute, he started beating me and stabbed me in the nose with an object I still don’t know and ran away, leaving me bleeding and in pain.
“A man who saw me by the roadside gave me his handkerchief to press on my nose to stop the bleeding because it was much. The man advised me to go home and possibly use a hammer or any metal to break the lock.
“That same night, when he came back, he began beating me again. I am a woman and I don’t have the power to fight him. At a point, I don’t know when I got a knife and stabbed him with it.”
When Sunday Sun inquired whether they had any quarrel previously, Wahab acknowledged that they had a long history of bickering and fighting. She said: “We always fought to the extent that the landlord once warned that if we ever fight again, he would give us quit notice. From that day, we tried to keep our quarrels as quiet as possible. We just resorted to merely insulting each other in the room so that the landlord won’t find out. I never knew when I stabbed him. He saw me holding the kitchen knife and when I unconsciously stabbed him, he did not give up immediately. It was when I raised the alarm that he crawled beside a gutter and died there.”
