Lady Stabbed Boyfriend To Death On Her Birthday In Ibadan To Avoid Rape

boyfriend stabbed to death in ibadan

May 12, 2013 – Ibadan Based Lady Stabbed Boyfriend To Death On Birthday To Avoid Rape

May 5, 2013 was Onyinyechi Orakwuelum’s 18th birthday.The day she became an adult and the day she allegedly stabbed to death 19-years-old Akinwale Ayobami, who she said wanted to rape her.

Onyinye, who is currently being held at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Iyaganku, Ibadan, pending investigation, narrated her story to Tribune and she said:

I am from Nkwele Ogidi in Anambra. I finished from Saint Gabriel Commercial Secondary School, Mokola, Ibadan, in 2011.

The deceased (Ayobami) was my mate in secondary school, as well as my friend Funmbi.

My parents moved to our personal house at Ologuneru community in Ibadan, so I lost contact with my friends. One day, my mother came home and told me that she saw my friend, Funmbi, and that they had also moved to Ologuneru. I was happy and we reunited.

She later gained admission into a university. In April this year, she came to me and asked if I remembered Ayobami, who was popularly called Ewizzy. She said they chatted on Facebook and that he told her that he was also living at Ologuneru, and had asked her to meet him at a junction so that she could know his place.

I told her that I could not recollect the name so she went alone.

The next time she wanted to go there, she asked me to follow her. I initially refused, but she persuaded me. We got there and saw him. His girlfriend was also there, lying on a couch. We relived our secondary school days and he later requested for my number since we were living in the same area. I gave him.

We left and not too long after, he called me, saying that he had been calling Funmbi’s number but it was switched off. He said he wanted to know if I had got home. Funmbi was beside me then so she also answered because her phone battery had gone flat by then.

Since then, I did not hear from him, though there was a day I missed his call, but I could not call him back as I had no credit on my phone.

On my birthday on May 5, I went to help a lady in our neighbourhood after coming back from church. When I checked my phone later, I saw Ayobami’s call among others that I had missed.

I called him back and while chatting, I told him that day was my birthday. He congratulated me and said it was worth celebrating. I told him I was only marking it.

He asked where I was and I said Ologuneru, he then asked me to join him at Ologuneru junction. I went there at about 7p.m. and I saw him come out of a beer parlour. I didn’t know that he was already drunk.
On getting to his apartment, he took me through the back door. When I asked why, he said the lock on the front door was bad so he locked it with a padlock.

I told him I preferred to sit outside because it was pitch dark inside. He opened the front door and I went in. We put on torchlights.

I made a call to a friend while he was busy on his laptop. Later, he made a call to his mother.

We started discussing about school days again and he then went to the kitchen and offered me water. I told him I was o.k. and he went into the kitchen again.

It was at that point that Onyinyechi said the story changed. She narrated further:

“He came back and locked the front door with a padlock. I asked him why he did that but he just sat beside me and said he wanted to date me. I even thought he was joking, and I replied that ‘is that what we came here to do?’ but he told me he was very serious.

As he moved closer, I perceived a strong smell of alcohol, then I knew he was drunk.

“I asked again: ‘AY, are you drunk?’ he replied that he was not drunk, saying he meant what he said. I told him I could not date him and he replied that if I could not date him, then he must have sex with me before I leave.

I told him to open the door for me to leave but he said I was not going anywhere. I started pleading but he did not yield.

“The next thing he did was to pull off his trousers and I knew I was in trouble because I could see he was aroused. He told me I could see that he was in mood for sex and that he must have his way.

I opened the sliding window screaming ‘somebody, please help me!, Somebody, please, save me!’. He came there, slapped me, drew me back and locked the window.

I started running round the sitting room and he was pursuing me.

“He went to the kitchen and brought a knife, warning me not to waste his time.
He threatened to do something nasty to me if I did not yield to him after counting from one to 10.

He had said before that he loved his mother so I begged him in the name of his mother, he did not yield ground.

I begged him in the name of God but he said he left God a long time ago and that he was serving Ogun. He showed me the picture of a bird hanged on the wall and said that was the symbol of his god.

I also told him I was having my menses but he said I should allow him to do what he wanted to do, saying that if his friends should meet me in the house, they would take their turns with me.

He lit a cigarette and started smoking. He started his countdown but I knelt and was pleading. As he got to eight, I screamed the more but he rushed at me and started struggling with me to remove the bum shorts I was wearing underneath my long dress.

In the process, he dropped the knife, and at that moment of intense fear, I picked the knife and waved it at him in the darkness. The next thing I heard was Yee! O ti gun mi (Oh! You have stabbed me).

I stood up, shivering. I searched for my phone because the entire place was in topsy-turvy.

Throughout the struggling, no one responded among his neighbours, though he had earlier said that no one would respond to me as they regard the occupants of his flat as ‘Dons’ who are dreaded.

“I reported at home and we went to the police station to report. By the time we got back to the house, he was dead. It was in the morning that it was seen clearly that the knife pierced his heart.”

Sunday Tribune gathered that the deceased’s mother had been so distraught about his death that she had been calling for justice to be done to her son’s killer.

She was said to be separated from the boy’s father and had remarried and given birth to other children while Ayobami was the only child she had for the father.

Police investigations also revealed that the man Ayobami was living with in the flat was not related to him.

Reacting to the story, the Assistant Commissioner of police in charge of the Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, ACP Dasuki Galadanchi said the matter was still being investigated.

There is no witness yet to support the suspect’s story. On the side too, dead bodies cannot talk. There was no witness on the side to corroborate whether there was an attempted rape or not.

In line with the police strategy of the Inspector General of police which encourages openness, transparency and accountability, we will go deeper into investigations and get to the root of the matter. If she’s found culpable, she’ll be charged to court accordingly. We are for justice.

    By reading through her report, I think she is credible because there’s no way she could have frame the account of the incident without contradicting herself at a point with the statements. I’m pretty much sure, if she is question over again, she would be consistent with her response. The damage had been done already. However, knowing guys of today only God can predict their state of minds based on the irrational behaviors majority of them sometimes exhibited. She has to defend herself in a way, what of if, she is the victim of both rape and death? Would the family of the guy defend her against their son? She claimed at a point that: “the boy told her no one would respond to her plea because they’re regard as the dreaded “DONs” of the neighbourhood.” It is unfortunate that he’s gone; but I don’t know why guys attach so much importance with sex. It is cracy and it’s high time people need to be educated on how to conduct themselves around women. Suppose the young lady is carrier of an incurable STD and refusing to disclose same to him, would he blame himself or the girl for his action? that is why the society is so currupt and polluted with unwanted children. The Lord will come to her rescue and console the family of the dead as well.

    When u talk about rape,what is her evident? Hw are we sure is true? Why hw can she stay in a room without light? Why is she puting on bub short?why was it dat at d tym she stab him she started searching for her phone? If the room was dark how did she found the knife that she use to stab him? No evidence! Justice must be done.But Ewizzy sex hv taking u to ur untimely dead. A pitty! Onyinye why killing ur classmate b’coz of sex are u a vagin? If u are respossible why going to his pleace @ as of dat tym wearing bub short?

      you talk like a fool and i know its either u are capable of rape or you are a rapist. What do u mean by Is she a virgin? so if shes not a virgin she has to be violated by every Tom , Dick and Harry. You are really senseless for that statement. A young boy that forcibly wants to take advantage of a lady is not fit to live, cos his been alive will be a great problem to the society.

    If the story is anything to go by, then I will not blame the suspect.That is self defense. That guy would have killed her because he was ready to do anything to the suspect.Somebody that was worshiping ogun? @Love, it was God that intervened for the poor girl.
    I believe the deceased was a rapist. Because according to the suspect, he guy said he had gang members.

    harsison u’re so dumb, things can happen very fast if u’re tensed, why wud she kill her class mate? where they quarelling b4? she went with him to his house, if she hates him wud she? that was d only way she felt she cud free herself, and she said she was wearing bum short under her gown, which was wat even helped her in d first place. i’m a guy and wud never surppot rape, it’s a pity but she did wat she had to if she’s not virgin den she give it to every drunk. u must be one

    The boy is untrained and likes of him, will definitely constitute nuisance to the society, a young boy thats supposed to delve his head in his book,drinking and thinking of how to force ladies to sex, he wanted to capitalize on the girls naiveness. God catch u, tell God what you did that led to ur death when you meet with him. as for the girl the police should free her and let her focus on getting an admission and continue her life. she only protected herself against violation. Must men are into this shameful act of getting it forcefully. This year Prophecies has said that Nemesis will catch up with you all.

    @marrison kenudi pls read d story very well before u pass judgement. For God sakes d poor girl said d short she wore under her long dress. If she is ur sister will u say that? Poor u oyin i really feel for u. But why did u have to go @ nite now. God will vindicate u. As for d guy may his soul rest in peace i hope his remaining DONS of that area will learn frm his mistake.

    Its a pity that Ayo is now late. However, a clear X-ray of Onyin’s statement reveals covert evidence that she is careful with the truth. Its a pity anyway!

    Harrison u be complete mumu, read her statement all over again, if u are a judge, i swear innocent people go dey flow go jail like water…let me copy few things for u from her statements:(1)’I screamed but he rushed at me and started struggling with me to remove the bum short I was wearing underneath my LONG dress’
    (2) Stay like 2 mins in the Dark and u will see more clearer than new person coming in.
    Try note that its more clear to anybody that the girl cannot over power the boy IF not that the boy was in the mood and was trying to put the both hand to work to remove the bum short, thats why he dropped the knife.
    Harrison please arrange for your fellow DON’S RAPER Burial…

    @lena or whatever your dumb-ass name is, firstly, If your punk-ass ain’t no motherf**king Nigerian, how the f**k you going jump into conclusion blaming someone whom you aint got no goddem clue of the lifesytle or condition people are living or facing on daily basis in Nigeria. You need to shut your sorry-ass up before you got badly whiped. ’cause somebody going trace your dumb-ass and kick the black out of you goddemit. It is obvious you’re the kind that would do the same shit to female pervert. I guess your dumb brain never step out of house at night before? Irrespective of the time of the day she went out, does that justify being raped. How about if the girl is your MOTHER, SISTER or your sorry-self; Will you still pass the same judgment? I guess your stupid ass deserve to be ra**d to see how enjoyable it feels for once, and then come back to this forum and passing judgment.
