A Lady named Anita Ofili, was arrested for allegedly killing her friend, Glory Okon, in her apartment at Greenville Estate, Ajah area of Lagos. The suspect confessed that she deliberately waited for 10 years before deciding to take her revenge.
According to reports from Vanguard Newspapers, Anita confessed that she committed the gruesome murder because the deceased snatched her boyfriend about 10 years ago.
Occupants of the building where the suspect lived were alerted by a shout for help from Ofili’s one-room self-contain apartment at 1.20p.m., on Sunday March 26. They reportedly forced the door open, only to discover Ofili thrusting a kitchen knife into Okon’s neck.
Unfortunately, the victim, who was rushed to the General Hospital on Lagos Island, was confirmed dead, after she had lost so much blood.
It was gathered that the suspect and the deceased had been friends for close to two decades and had attended the same tertiary institution. They were said to have had a misunderstanding that strained their relationship for close to 10 years before they reconciled two weeks ago.
Explaining why she committed the act, Ofili said;
“I have been friends with Glory for years, and we have been good friends , but she betrayed that friendship by snatching my boyfriend.”
