Daniel Okocha, the 22- year old young man who stabbed his 20- year old live in lover Nkechi and mother of his child to death has been arrested by the State criminal investigation and intelligence department SCIID, Yaba, Lagos.
The tragedy occurred last Sunday at their apartment in the Egbeda area of Lagos.
Trouble started when the victim prepared to go to church and the suspect refused to allow her go.
The victim insisted, which led to an altercation and later a fight, during which the suspect stabbed her in the neck with a knife and fled the scene.
During interrogation, the suspect claimed it was a mistake. He said he prevented her from going to church, because he felt she was going to see another man. He claimed he suspected she was cheating on him.
When the police searched his phone, a text message he sent clearly indicated that his actions were intentional.
In the text, he said he killed and watched her die for 45 minutes.
The suspect and the victim both hail from the same community in Ubulu, in Aniocha South Local Government area of Delta state.
