AN EBUTE Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos today ordered that a 25-year-old man, Victor Abasiama, be remanded in a correctional centre for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend Cynthia Edeya, 23, to death with a kitchen knife.

  She was stabbed on her head and stomach.

  The police charged Abasiama with murder.

  Magistrate W.A. Salam, who did not take the plea of Abasiama, ordered that he should be remanded in Ikoyi Correctional Centre pending legal advice from the office of the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Magistrate Salami adjourned the matter until October 20 for DPP advice.

  Earlier, the prosecutor, Temitope Adegbie told the court that Abasiama committed the offence on August 25, at Ebute Area in Ikorodu.

  He alleged that Abasiama stabbed Edeya after she got into a heated argument because the defendant alleged that his girlfriend bellyached him before his benefactor who was helping him to work on promoting his album.

  “In the heat of the argument, he picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed her, she died before she got help to the hospital,” he said.

  He said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
