Woman kills lover for refusing to finance daughter’s birthday


A 23-year-old woman, Stella Peter, has been arrested for stabbing her live-in-partner, Bala Haruna, aged 25, to death over his refusal to finance their daughter’s one-year birthday party.

The incident occurred at No. 2, Tejuosho Avenue, Surulere where the suspect and the deceased have lived as a couple for three years.

Stella, a native of Kogi State, according to report, had an argument with her Kebbi State partner, Haruna, following his inability to raise N30,000 for their daughter’s birthday, on Tuesday morning.

The couple’s dispute started before 6:00a.m. after Haruna, a phone charger, was said to have given his woman N3,000 to buy biscuits and share among kids in the slum neighbourhood, which riled the suspect.

She was said to have planned to host a party and want a Disc Jockey (DJ) hired for the celebration.

Spokesman of the police in Lagos, Bala Elkana, confirmed the incident adding that the woman would be charged with murder.
