A 39-year-old man, Chris Ndukwe, has committed suicide in Lagos after killing his 25-year- old girlfriend, Olamide Alli.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the state police command, DSP Bala Elkana, and made available to newsmen on Monday in Lagos.

Elkana said that Ndukwe and Alli were found dead at the former’s residence, Road 5, House 16A, Victory Point Estate, Ilasan, Lagos, after a tip-off to officers of Ilasan police station.

He said that a team of homicide detectives was deployed to the scene, adding that the crime scene had been preserved for forensic analysis.

“The woman was found lying in a pool of blood, with deep cuts on her head, while the man’s mouth was foaming with whitish substance.

“It was alleged that the man stabbed the woman to death with a kitchen knife and thereafter drank some poisonous substances suspected to be Snipper insecticides.

“Two blood-stained kitchen knives, two empty bottles of the poisonous substances, three empty cans of Red Bull energy drink and a plier were recovered from the scene,” Elkana said.
