TERRIBLE: Man Stabs Girlfriend To Death In Lagos Hotel

Operatives of the Nigerian police force on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 arrested a 28-year old man, identified as Raphael Effiong in Alapere, Ketu area of Lagos state for allegedly stabbing to death his girlfriend Gift Sunday, 26.

In a new twist, members of the deceased family accused Effiong of attempting to cut off their daughters breast and fingers with the aim of using her for rituals.
According to Vanguard, the pair had checked into the hotel, located at Yusuf Eleran street, Ketu on Tuesday, July 30, 2014.
Reports say on Wednesday, July 30 staff at the hotel were alarmed by shouts emanating from the room, on getting to the room, the deceased was found in a pool of her own blood.
Vanguard reports:
Efforts to save her life failed as she reportedly died in a private hospital located on Elebiju Street, also in Ketu, Lagos.
Her remains, as gathered, were deposited at the Ikorodu General Hospital mortuary.
A relative of the deceased, who spoke to Vanguard on condition of anonymity, said: What we heard was that on reaching the hotel, the suspect ordered for drinks. As our daughter was sipping hers, he brought out a pair of scissors and started cutting one of her breasts.
She was screaming at that point. Not done, he cut one of her fingers and attempted to gag her so he could finish his satanic mission.
Her scream alerted people who came to her rescue. We were told she gave this version while she was being rushed to the hospital.
We were also told the boyfriend attempted to escape but was apprehended by the hotel staff before the arrival of policemen from Alapere.
Her death has plunged everyone into sorrow. All we want is for the police to find out why Raphael killed our daughter.
However, when the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, was contacted, she said: Yes, we have that case. But that is not what happened. What happened was that a man stabbed his girlfriend with scissors inside a hotel room in Alapere during a fight. The lady later died while the suspect has been arrested and is currently in our custody.
