On Sunday, 21st June, A Nigerian man identified as Chris Ndukwe, 39, stabbed his wife, Olamide Alli, 25, to death, and committed suicide afterwards in their home in Victory Park estate in Lagos state.


The young couple were said to have been dating on and off for over 7 years and planned to get married this August.


According to reports, They have two children : A seven-year-old son and a three-year-old son. However, the whole issue started when Chris began to doubt the paternity of their second child, insisting the child isn’t his.


A friend who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Chris and Olamide were never living together but Olamide usually takes the boys to the house to see Chris. He also confirmed that Chris had called a comedian a few weeks ago to book him for their forthcoming marriage ceremony.


On Saturday, Olamide took the kids and her sister to see Chris. According to residents of the estate, They were spotted jogging together on Saturday night.


Later that night, she went to his room to spend some time with him while her sister was in the room with the boys, and that was when he committed the murder-suicide.


A neighbor who spoke on condition of anonymity said,


“On Sunday afternoon, neighbours close to the couple’s apartment heard loud music emanating from their home and this lasted for many hours” .

“The neighbors went to the estate office to complain about the loud music and insisted the estate officials go there and caution the couple” .

“The estate authorities went to the couple’s compound to appeal to them to turn down the volume of the music coming from their apartment” .

“They however met with the wife’s sister who was downstairs with the couple’s children. The sister immediately went upstairs so she can inform her sister and the husband about the complaint laid by the estate authorities. She knocked several times but got no response”.

“After waiting for so long, the sister and the estate officials decided to pull the door down. They were greeted by a horrific sight”.
