The incident happened on Sunday 21st June which was Father’s Day, in Victory Park estate, Lekki, Lagos State. The man identified as Femi reportedly stabbed his wife to death and then drank two bottles of sniper and died.
According to some residents of the said estate, the couple only moved into the estate three weeks ago with their two little kids.
The residents said that they didn’t know much about the couple since they just moved in. It was also said that the couple were seen jogging on Saturday 20th June, a day before the incident.
