A 26-year-old man has reportedly stabbed his 18-year-old girlfriend in
a hotel room in Yenagoa.
The man took to his heels when the wailing of the victim attracted the
attention of other guests in the guest house who came to her rescue.

The victim was identified as Faith Pius
The guest house is located at Biogbolo area of Yenagoa.
One of the guests told NAN that the suspect escaped when other guests
and residents in the neighbourhood rushed to the scene.
The source, who pleaded anonymity, said the incident happened on Friday night.

NAN gathered that Ms. Pius was rushed to a private clinic where she
was treated and the wounds stitched.
"But she developed complications on Saturday and she died on Sunday
morning,'' the source said.

The state police commissioner, Amba Asuquo, who confirmed the
incident, said it was first considered as a case of assault occasioned
by harm.
"Initially, it was treated purely as a case of assault occasioned by
harm but now that the girl has died, we are now treating a case of
murder against one suspect.
"We are in the process of ensuring that the suspect is arrested
because after committing the crime he ran away.

"I know some people are associating it to ritual killing but we cannot
conclude," he said.
Youths of Biogbolo community took to the streets to protest the death
of the girl from knife cuts allegedly inflicted on her by her lover

It took the intervention of detachments of riot police officers to
disperse the aggrieved youth.
The incident caused panic as residents ran in different directions
while operators of business outfits closed shop and fled.
Stephen Pius, an elder brother of the victim, alleged that the suspect
cut his younger sister twice each in her stomach and her heart region.
