A woman in Lagos has been arrested operatives of the Homicide Unit of the Lagos State Police Command for the alleged murder of her lover for refusing to release money for their daughter’s birthday party in the Surulere area of the state.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, reports in a statement issued on Tuesday that the woman identified as Stella Peter, stabbed to death her lover, Bala Haruna after an argument which ensued because the latter refused to release money for their daughter’s birthday.

Elkana said, “On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, around 6am, homicide detectives from the Surulere Division arrested one Stella Peter, 23, for stabbing her hubby, Bala Haruna, 25, to death. The couple, who were not actually married, lived together at No. 2 Tejuosho Avenue, Surulere, Lagos, for three years and had a baby, who just turned one.

“An argument ensued between them, which turned violent, and the woman used a kitchen knife to stab the man in the back, which led to his death. The woman accused the man of refusing to release money for their daughter’s birthday party.

“Homicide detectives from the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, have taken over the investigation. The suspect confessed to the crime. She will be charged for murder.”
