An Okene, Kogi man, in Nigeria’s North-Central, is reported to have stabbed a pregnant lady to death, after a confrontation ensued between them. The man, Hussain Zubairu reportedly interfered in a discussion the pregnant lady, named Bose Mohammed, was having with her friend over a missing mobile phone. Bose was said to have protested Zubairu’s meddlesomeness, leading to them exchanging words. Seething from anger over Bose’s reprimanding of him, Zubairu stormed into the house and only to return with a pair of scissors. Zubairu was alleged to have pierced his neighbour’s (Bose) stomach with the object in his hand, leading to the latter losing so much blood. Bose, later, died of her injuries. Zubairu was alleged to be a drug addict and a violent man by neighbours.
Willy Aya, Police Public Relations Officer, Kogi Police Command, confirmed the incident. Aya said Bose died “before she was rushed to the hospital, she died.”
He added that matter was currently investigated by State Department of Criminal Investigation.
