A man who reportedly began to question the paternity of their second child after a mandatory DNA and the test they took for their Canadian visa showed that he was not the father of the child, kills wife and committed suicide.
Chris Ndukwe, who resided at Victory Park Estate in Lekki, Lagos, committed suicide after stabbing his wife, Olamide Alli, multiple times to death over the paternity of their second child.
According to residents of the estate, the couple moved into the estate three weeks ago with their two young children.
However, the residents said not much was known about the couple until Saturday night, a day before the murder-suicide, when they were spotted jogging together.
The man who is said to have always questioned the paternity of their second child after they got Canadian visa the man found out through mandatory DNA test that his youngest child is not his.
He has since been questioning his wife, leading to him stabbing his wife to death, and then taking his own life.
Bala Elkana, a spokesperson to the Lagos state police, who confirmed the tragedy on Monday, said their corpses were retrieved after the incident transpired on Sunday.
The spokesperson said;
I can confirm to you that it happened. We have moved the corpse of the man and that of his wife for autopsy. She was found in the pool of her own blood.
He noted that when the police arrived at the crime scene to find the man exuding froth from his mouth, suggesting he might have consumed poison, while his wife was found dead, lying in the pool of her own blood.
Elkana said that the knife believed to have been used in stabbing the woman was recovered while two bottles of sniper, a popular insecticide, which the man might have used to end his life, were found.
The spokesperson added that investigations into the incident are still ongoing, adding that;
An autopsy will reveal the cause of their death. But the suspicion right now is that he might have killed her and thereafter took his own life.
Investigations are still ongoing.
The circumstance surrounding the misunderstanding that led to the man’s action is yet confirmed.
However, report has it that the couple were scheduled to get married this August.
Chris Ndukwe, 39, and Olamide Alli, 25, were said to have been dating on and off for over 7 years.
They have a seven-year-old son and then had a second son, three years ago.
Trouble started when Chris began to doubt the paternity of their second child, insisting the child isn’t his.
According to the friend, what is quite shocking to them is that Chris was still going on with the plans to marry Olamide in August while he was nursing such a plan.
The friend who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Chris had called a comedian a few weeks ago to book him for their forthcoming nuptials.
”There have been an issue that has been coming up about the second child. He planned to get married to her in August. He had told friends about it.
This is the most confusing for everyone.
He had called a comedian earlier to tell him he was going to be the MC at the occasion.
He had told our older friends that are doctors that they would accompany him to go do the normal legal rites.” he said
The friend said Chris and Olamide were never living together.
He said Olamide usually takes the boys to the house to see Chris. He said on Saturday they went for jogging and when they returned, she offered to give him dinner.
Later that night, she went to his room to spend some time with him while her sister was in the room with the boys, and that was when he committed the murder-suicide.
