A man, identified as Keke, together with his yet-to-be-identified wife, has gone into hiding after he allegedly stabbed a fashion designer, Daniel, to death in the Iwaya area of Lagos State.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the fleeing suspect returned from work when one of his neighbours reportedly informed him that an illicit affair was going on between his wife and Daniel.

The information was said to have angered Keke, who stepped out of his apartment to challenge the victim.

Our correspondent learnt that Keke threatened the fashion designer with a knife, as Daniel fled the scene and entered his apartment.

The suspect was said to have barged into the apartment and stabbed the victim in the chest.

Daniel was rushed to a hospital where he died around 11pm on Monday.

Keke and his wife were said to have fled their home to avoid being attacked.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, confirmed the incident.

He said, “As soon as the incident was reported, police detectives attached to the Sabo division immediately visited the scene. The victim was taken to the Harvey Road Hospital, Yaba, for medical attention, but he died while being attended to.

“The body has been deposited at the Yaba Mainland Hospital’s morgue for an autopsy. Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed that the case be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, for diligent investigation.  He has also directed that all efforts should be made to arrest the fleeing suspect.”
