“I am Oluwatoyin Joshua, I am 26 years old. On the day of the incident, I went to see Olayinka Adebayo who was my ex-boyfriend at the place, where he was selling hard dr#gs. When one of his friends, Olalekan, an internet fra#dtser came and gave me N3,000. He was about traveling when he gave me the money.

The guy (Olalekan asked me to take N1,000 and give my ex-boyfriend N2,000.

After Olalekan gave me the money he left, I went to meet my ex-boyfriend and told him that his friend said I should give him N2,000, he said it was a lie that he owns the whole money. I told him he cannot collect the whole money from me and I dropped his own N,2000 on the table.

Thereafter, my ex-boyfriend picked the money, threw it back at me and he then called the guy that gave us the money.”

Before I knew what was happening, my ex-boyfriend started beating me. I went to report him to an elderly person in the area who warned him and I was advised to leave where he was staying and he was dr@gged away.

After he was dragged away from my side, he came back to continue to be@t me, it was in the process I went into the kitchen to pick up a knife to scare him.

While I was running away from him he h!t me at the back of my head with a broken tile. I then st@bbed him in the neck and he was rushed to the hospital where he later d!ed two hours later. I was the one who paid his hospital bill,” the suspect said.
