A man identified as Ikechukwu Onuma popularly known as ‘Ayaaya Onye-Obodo’, has been stabbed to death by his wife’s female lover.
The unidentified woman murdered the husband, who was a staff of the College of Health, Onitsha, stabbing him to death with a knife.
It was gathered that the incident happened at the deceased residence, along Ogboli road, Onitsha, Anambra State, on Tuesday, at 9:20pm.
The deceased came home unannounced on Tuesday night to meet his wife in bed with another woman, making it out.
Sources in the area said his wife, unknown to him was a lesbian, and had been keeping a female sex partner.
The lady was said to have quickly attacked the man with a kitchen knife, stabbing him to death, during an argument, in a bid to silence the deceased.
According to the source, “The news has been everywhere in Onitsha today. People are so surprised how Ayaaya was killed.
“He was a very handsome guy, and he is an admin staff at the college. How his wife left such a handsome young man to become a lesbian to the point of bringing sexual partners to the house is still a wonder.”
Another source said, “Ikechukwu is a very popular guy in the neighbourhood. He was also known as ‘Onye Obodo’. He got married to his wife in 2019.”
