The Kogi State police command said on Wednesday one Hussain Zubairu has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his pregnant neighbour, Bose Muhammed, to death with a pair of scissors in the Idogido community, Okene local government area of the state.

An eyewitnes said Zubairu committed the heinous act on Monday after he had interfered in a discussion between the deceased and her friend over a missing cellphone.

The deceased reportedly rebuked the suspect over his interference in their discussion and this led to an argument between the duo.

The suspect later attacked the victim with a scissors.

The eyewitness said: “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.
