The suspect Zubairu and the pregnant woman lived in the Idogido community of Okene Local Government Area of the state.

The suspect stabbed the woman in the stomach with a pair of scissors. She was rushed to a hospital in the area but died on arrival, according to an eyewitness account.

According to reports, a friend of the deceased had visited her last Monday when the incident happened.

Muhammed and the friend were said to be talking about a lost mobile phone when the suspect interfered.

She cautioned Zubairu not to meddle in their discussion and afterwards, an altercation ensued between both.

Zubairu became enraged and descended on the woman with the scissors.

The source further reveal that, the suspect was described as violent by some residents of the area. He added that some neighbours claimed he was on drugs.

The source said;

Many residents within that area said he was a drug addict but that has not been confirmed. I learnt the woman (Muhammed) had always been trying to avoid him because he was troublesome.

On that day, the victim and her friend were chatting and he interrupted.

She told him to mind his business and that infuriated him. He removed a pair of scissors he hid in his trousers, stabbed her in the stomach and fled.

The woman lost a lot of blood. She was pronounced dead on getting to the hospital. She was pregnant, but was not living with her husband.

The suspect who is in his 30s, was later arrested by detectives from the Okene Police Division while the deceased had been buried according to Islamic rites.
