A man is currently in Psychiatric ward following a violent attack on his neighbour in Surulere Lagos.

According to residents of 20 Oshinfowokan street in Ehin Iga area of Itire, a man identified as Sunday Mitten who works as dry cleaner suddenly ran mad on Sunday and wounded his wife before stabbing a neighbour to death.

The suspect who hails from Cross Rivers State stabbed one Sunday George in the chest 7 times when the spirit of insanity fell on him.

Before help could arrive, he had stabbed George to death.

He then proceeded to stab 2 other neighbours during the incident.

According to eyewitnesses, the attack happened around 1:30am early Sunday morning.

Sunday Mitten who occupies a room at the boy’s quarters of the building suddenly got up around 1:30, stripped himself naked and attempted to move out of his room.

His wife who tried to stop him was stabbed twice, but escaped and shouted for help. This attracted neighbours including the deceased, George, who equally hails from Cross River State.

When it became obvious that Mitten had gone insane, everyone ran for their dear lives.

Further bloodshed was prevented by the timely intervention of the Vigilante group in the area who bundled the suspect to the police station.

The victims are currently receiving treatment in the hospital. The corpse of the deceased had been deposited at a mortuary in the area.
