A 42-year-old father of four children identified as Dickson Igbinoba, has been killed while fighting another married man over a lover who has four children.
The incident was said to have occurred at about 8pm on December 27, 2018 at Obaruyi Street in Egor quarters, Benin City after the two married men engaged in a fight on meeting at their lover’s apartment.
Witnesses said Dickson collapsed and was later confirmed dead at hospital while the other lover, Mr. Osakioya Egavoen, aged 41 fled.
The witnesses said the woman identified as Ms Osasogie Edo-Ekhator, aged 37, watched helplessly as the two men exchange blows.
