“I waited 10 years to revenge” — Lady confesses to murder of friend who snatched her boyfriend
Anita Ofili admits to killing her friend Glory Okon and claims that she had been waiting for retribution after stealing her boyfriend for ten years.
Vanguard reported that Ofili claimed she attacked Okon at her apartment in Greenville Estate, Ajah, Lagos State because she had stolen her boyfriend ten years earlier.
Ofili’s one-room apartment in the building made a distress call on Sunday, March 26, at 1:20 pm, which prompted other occupants to step in.
They opened the door and found Ofili using a kitchen knife to stab Okon in the neck. Sadly, Okon lost too much blood at Lagos Island General Hospital and died.
One of the tenants of the building, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said;
“The landlord’s daughter was the one that heard the scream. She peeped through the window and saw a masked person stabbing a lady. She rushed and called her father, who alerted other tenants that forced the door open, only to discover that the masked person was Anita Ofili.
The whole room was filled with blood. We discovered that the victim was still breathing. We had to tie Ofili’s legs and hands to prevent her from escaping. Before the arrival of the Police, Ofili did not show any sign of remorse.
She said she would explain to the Police what happened. She claimed the lady in question was her friend and that her action was in revenge for what her friend did to her.”
According to reports, the suspect and the deceased studied at the same college or university and had been close friends for almost 20 years.
They drifted apart for ten years, until they reconciled two weeks ago, over a disagreement about boyfriend snatching.
“Glory and I had been good friends for years, but she betrayed that friendship by snatching my boyfriend,” Ofili stated.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said;
“At 5.50p.m., on March 26, a resident of Greenville Estate came to the station to report that he heard someone screaming from the room of one Annie Ofili, that himself and other tenants quickly rushed to the room, forced the door opened only to meet Annie on top of Glory Okon, who came to visit her.
Upon the information, a team of detectives moved to the scene. The suspect was arrested, the knife recovered, while the corpse was deposited at the Mainland General Hospital mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy and preservation. The suspect has been transferred to the SCIID, Yaba, for discreet investigation.”
