Cook Stabs Friend To Death For Reporting Him To Police, After Beating Up Female Customer

A man identified as Daniel Okorie, a cook, has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his friend, Onyeka Jackson, to death at Iyana Isashi, Lagos, reports Punch.

Okorie stabbed Jackson on the neck when he visited the suspect’s apartment at Clinic Bus stop, Iyana Isashi, around 6.30am on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 and was reported at the Isashi Police Division.

It was gathered that a week before the incident, a female customer was allegedly beaten up by Okorie, and the woman reported the incident at a police station.

Okorie was said to have fled the store while the policemen, who launched a manhunt for him, arrested Jackson and asked him to produce his friend.

When Jackson left the police station, he headed for Okorie’s rented apartment on Tuesday, and told him to report himself to the police.

Okorie was said to have become infuriated and an altercation ensued, during which the suspect allegedly grabbed a knife and stabbed his colleague. Jackson was said to have been rushed to a private hospital in the area, where he was confirmed dead.

Okorie, at the State Department of Criminal Investigations, Yaba, however, denied killing his friend for going to the police station. The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the arrest. She added that the corpse had been deposited in a morgue in Badagry.
