“The incident happened around 12.10 am last Friday,” said Oluwole Kazeem, a resident of the area. “Felix lived on Mission Street, Tolu Olodi, Apapa.
The lady was well known to him. She even came to his house to call him, and they went out together. It was at the back of the Phase II Hotel that a fight ensued between them.
“It was possible that they had gone into the hotel and had an affair which led to a misunderstanding. But we learned that around noon, the girl stabbed him, and he was thereafter rushed to a private hospital on Bale Street where he later died.”
According to a police report obtained by the pressmen, the suspect has been detained while police operatives have visited the private hospital and evacuated the corpse.
“At about 5 pm, the victim died at the hospital,” the police said. “The lady was thereafter arrested and detained. She has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, while further investigation is ongoing.”
Police sources said an autopsy would also be conducted on Felix before his corpse would be released to his family for burial.
