Man stabs teenager to death for spurning love advances

A 25-year-old Saliu Oladapo has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a 19-yearold girl, Chinyere Ebere, to death for spurning his love advances. The suspect was arrested by the Ondo State Police Command. According to the police, the deceased had only just recently completed her West African Secondary School Leaving Certificate Examination.


The incident happened at No 3 Obasuyi Street, Ijoka in Akure, the state capital. Police sources claimed that Ebere died after Oladapo stabbed her in the chest and other parts of her body with a knife.


The deceased was said to have collapsed and bled to death. Neighbours, who got wind of the incident, alerted the police.


The girl was said to have died before the arrival of the policemen from Oke Aro Police Station. Speaking with journalists yesterday, the mother of the deceased, Mrs. Lovely Nwama, said she was in her shop when a neighbour called her that her daughter had been stabbed by a young man.


The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident, explained that the suspect was asking the girl to date him which she refused, and was said to have publicly embarrassed the suspect. According to Joseph, this rejection infuriated Oladapo, who then allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed Ebere to death. The suspect, who has been arrested by the police at B Division, would be charged to court for murder after the police investigation.
