A man, Friday Njoku, on Friday committed suicide after killing his 25-year-old fiancee, Cynthia Nwafia, police said.

Mr. Njoku and Cynthia were friends for some years, PREMIUM TIMES learnt.

Mr. Njoku it was further gathered had completed the preliminary traditional introduction to the parents and relatives of the woman to indicate his intention to marry her and was reportedly accepted by Cynthia’s family.

Mr. Njoku and Cynthia’s relationship had advanced as they were already planning their formal marriage rites.

But he reportedly stormed his lover’s house at 5 Amachi street, Abakaliki when she was cooking and stabbed her.

Cynthia was rushed to the hospital by her neighbours following an alarm raised by her. She died while being conveyed to the hospital.

In a bizarre twist, Mr. Njoku, after stabbing Cynthia, reportedly went to his house in Abakaliki and committed suicide.

His corpse was later discovered inside his room with blood gushing out from his nose, eyes and ears at 9 a.m .the following day.

Sources told PREMIUM TIMESs that Mr. Njoku had gone to Cynthia’s family a day before he killed the girl and complained that the deceased was unfaithful to him.

Police spokesman in the State, Loveth Oda, confirmed the incident to our reporter adding that investigation have since been launched into the matter.

    Research has shown that this type of behavior is characteristic, symptomatic and/or syndrome of societies in which the family unit has broken or is on the verge of breaking down. Men have abdicated their roles. This is not surprising considering that a nonentity such as one hopeless kanu is considered to be a leader. Where are the men? You take a look at some countries in Southern Africa most especially South Africa where this type of behavior is prevalent, it’s because the family unit was destroyed during the apartheid era. I call on all of my brothers from the other side of the Niger to rise up, redeem yourselves from riff raffs called ipob/asari dokubo/kanu etc or prepare yourselves for even worse scenarios. God forbid.
