Man commits suicide after stabbing fiancee to death in Ebonyi State


  • A man, Friday Njoku on Friday committed suicide after killing his 25-year-old fiancee, Cynthia Nwafia. Njoku and Cynthia have been friends for some years.

    Njoku, it was further gathered, had done preliminary traditional introduction to the parents and relatives of the girl to indicate his interest in  marrying her and was accepted by Cynthia’s family. 

    Njoku and Cynthia’s relationship had advanced as they were already planning their formal marriage only for him to stab the girl to death. He had stormed his lover’s house at 5 Amachi street, Abakaliki when she was cooking and stabbed her. 

    Cynthia was rushed to the hospital by her neighbours but she could not make it as she passed away few minutes after being taken to the hospital. Njoku, after stabbing Cynthia, went to his house in another street in Abakaliki and committed suicide.

    His corpse was discovered inside his room with blood gushing out from his nose, eyes and ears at 9am the following day. Njoku had gone to Cynthia’s family a day before he killed the girl and complained that the deceased was unfaithful to him. 

    Police spokesman in the State, Loveth Oda, confirmed the incident, adding that investigation has since been launched into the matter.
