Food vendor stabs jealous ex-lover over N500 in Ondo
Ondo Town’s Enu-Owa Police Division apprehended a 39-year-old food seller for stabbing her ex-boyfriend after a fight over N500.
When they got into a fight in Ondo’s Iyalaje market, the suspect, Seun Sola, reportedly stabbed the victim in the stomach with a knife.
The victim, Lomi Alara Akinbinu, and the suspect, a single mother, were lovers until their relationship ended, according to a police source.
Lomi was alleged to have gone to Sola’s residence but was interrupted by her new lover, which annoyed him.
Lomi, who was apparently furious by the behavior, insisted that the suspect accompany him home, but she refused.
As a result, he demanded that she return the 500 naira he had earlier given her children for food.
“My ex-boyfriend came to my house in the afternoon and gave my twins five hundred naira for feeding,” the suspect, Seun Sola, stated.
She added “In the evening, he returned to my house and stated that he would stay the night at my house. But I told him that I was no longer interested in him. Then he demanded the money he had given my twins. And I instantly handed over the cash. He suddenly began to beat me.
“He hit me because he met my current boyfriend with me when he came to my place. He became enraged and began to beat me.
“So, when I realized he had overpowered me, I stabbed him in the stomach with a knife,” she explained.
The victim was taken to the Trauma Centre for treatment, while the suspect was apprehended and charged in court, according to the police.
