Our correspondent also learnt that the assailant stabbed the victim severally in the stomach, causing his intestines to gush out. The wife of the deceased said she had been alerted by some neighbours about a fight between her late husband and the assailant, but found him dead when she arrived at the scene.
“When I rushed to the scene, I saw him on the road; all his intestines were on the ground. When I asked, they said that his girlfriend’s son stabbed him.
“So, I took him to a hospital. But after everything, he died. When we got to the woman’s house, we found that it was empty; they had run away,” Mrs. Osayande said.
The Edo State Police Commissioner, Samuel Adegbuyi, who confirmed the incident, said that the command had commenced investigation, as an informant had agreed to provide useful information to unravel the case. “An anonymous informant called to help us see how we can apprehend the boy. Investigation is ongoing,” the police commissioner said.
