24-Year Old Lady Remanded In Prison For Stabbing Boyfriend To Death In Lekki


For allegedly stabbing her boyfriend to death, 24-year-old Blessing Edet is to be kept behind bars for the next 30 days, a Lagos court ruled on Thursday.

An Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court said Blessing should be remanded at Ikoyi Prisons pending when the case would be filed at the appropriate court.

The Magistrate, Mrs B.O. Folarin-William said: “The accused should be remanded in prison custody pending when the case will be filed at the appropriate court since the advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is out.”

NAN reports that the DPP had advised that the accused should be prosecuted for murder at a higher court.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Maria Dauda, told the court that the offence was committed on August 18, 2015 at about midnight at No. 1, Falana St., Ogombo, Lekki.

She said the accused and the deceased, Edet Ebong, 33, had engaged themselves in a fight and in the process, she picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed the deceased in his stomach.

The offence contravened Section 221 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011 and the section prescribes a life sentence for offenders. The case has been adjourned to April 4 for mention.
