The Police in Delta State have arrested two men, Kevwe Edward and Lucky Grant, for stabbing one Matthew Iyede to death over a lady. Iyede was said to have been attacked and stabbed by three men at the Blue Sea Restaurant and Bar, Eku near the Delta State University Abraka. Both Eward and Grant were said to have been led, together with other youths, by one Ese Uku to attack the deceased. Uku was said to have warned Iyede to stay away from his girlfriend but the deceased’s failure to adhere to the warning led to the attack.

A relative of the deceased told Southern City News that Iyede was murdered over a woman he had been dating.

The spokesman of the Delta State Police Command, Celestina Kalu, confirmed the incident saying two of the suspects had been arrested by the police in Abraka. She added that the corpse had been deposited at the Eku General Hospital pending further investigation by the police.
