Ikechukwu Onuma, an Anambra man living in Onitsha, was stabbed to death on Tuesday night by his wife’s lesbian girlfriend, according to new information.
As previously reported by Chronicle NG, Onuma, a staff member at the College of Health in Onitsha, was fatally stabbed by his wife’s lesbian lover when he arrived home and observed them having sex.
Contrary to earlier claims, a source told Daily Post, the dead did not witness his wife engaging in sex with her lesbian girlfriend.
Onume and his wife, according to the source, have been married for three years and he was aware of her sexual orientation at the time.
The source, Mr. Sam Eze from inland town Onitsha, said: “Ayaya (Ikechukwu’s nickname) knew his wife was a lesbian.
“Yes, but on the day he died, he didn’t catch them in the act. A different altercation arose and he had to go to the lady’s house to sort it out. An argument followed up and she threatened to kill him if he doesn’t leave.
“He stood his ground and the lady went in to get a knife. On coming out, he dared her to do her worst and after a scuffle, she stabbed him twice in the chest.
“Mind you, the whole town knows that both ladies are lesbians and lovers. The late man had even sent her (his wife) packing before over the same issue.
“The killer too was married before but her husband divorced her because of her lesbianism.”
Further investigation by the publication revealed that after Ikechukwu’s wife listened to her husband’s warning of breaking up the relationship with her lesbian partner, she (lesbian partner) began tormenting the family.
Uzomah Udora Sandra, a neighbour to the deceased man said the lady was fond of collecting money from the maid to the deceased anytime she was sent on errands.
She said: “They sent the ward to buy fuel (on the fateful day) and the killer collected the money as usual. The ward came back and told the wife and the wife called the husband that was busy at a party to come home.
“When the guy came home she told him what happened, so the guy now went to the killer’s house to find out why she will collect the money from their ward not knowing that one is already waiting for him and fight started and she stabbed him.
“The victim is a well-known and funny guy, so his death was a shock to a lot of people.
“The matter was that the wife and the killer are lesbian partners indeed, but they were not caught in the act in the bedroom as rumoured.
“The dead guy has been warning the killer to stay away from the wife because both of them are partners, and he warned the wife too. Because of the said beef, whenever the dead guy sends their ward to go and buy something the lesbian killer will block the ward on the road and collect the money they gave the ward.”
