August 1st, 2014 – MTN Driver Stabbed Girlfriend To Death In Ketu Lagos Hotel For Refusing To Marry Him

A young man has been arrested in Lagos for killing his girlfriend after she rejected his marriage proposal.

28-year-old Raphael Effiong on Monday stabbed his girlfriend, 26-year-old Gift Sunday to death with scissors inside a hotel in Ketu area of Lagos.

A relative of the victim said Effiong attacked Gift in June before he eventually killed her in the last attack.

Read what a relative of the deceased, Mr Dickson said about the murder:

“The incident happened on Monday evening. It was shocking to all of us. Gift prepared some food, and took it to the hotel on his invitation. They got a room, and checked in. What then happened was that Raphael, who had hidden a pair of scissors in his pocket, swooped on Gift and attacked her.

“She began to scream, but there was no quick response. He injured her brutally with the scissors. It was after a while when some guests in the hotel heard her screams that they came around and asked Effiong to open the door, but he refused.

“They forced the door open, found Sunday in a pool of blood and alerted the policemen from the Alapere division. This was not the first time he would attack her. About a month ago, while he had come on a visit and the two were alone at home, he had attacked her because she was not ready to marry him,” Mr Dickson said.

The troubled lovers met in 2013.

The suspect who hailed from Uyo in Akwa Ibom state was said to be working as a driver for MTN.

His case has been transferred to Criminal Investigation Department in Yaba Lagos. During interrogation, he confessed that he murdered his lover because she turned down his marriage proposal.
