An extramarital affair turned deadly over the weekend after a police sergeant stabbed and killed the man who was dating his wife.
The love crime happened in Oteri community, Ughelli North local government area of Delta State, where residents say the policeman had tried and failed to stop the man, identified as David Ogbodo, from seeing his estranged wife.
The suspect, identified as Ijeoma, is a sergeant attached to the Patani Police division. He was arrested after the victim was confirmed dead from excessive bleeding as a result of injuries sustained during the attack on him.
Residents who spoke to Vanguard said “When all efforts by the policeman to stop the victim from seeing his wife failed, he reported the matter to the police who trying to resolve the issue amicably, drafted some policemen with him in a bid to invite the victim for questioning.
“On getting to the residence of the victim, the policeman saw his wife and the victim together, angered by this, he quickly grabbed a bottle, broke it and used it to St@bDavid multiple times leading to his death.”
Wow! The things we do for love…
