Policeman crushes wife’s legs, stabs baby to death over N2,000

Lucky Ikharia
A police corporal, Lucky Ikharia, 34, attached to Makinde police station, Lagos, is now on the run after allegedly crushing the legs of his wife, Dupe and killed his own baby over a N2000 argument.
The tragic incident happened on the 30th of October, at the family’s rented apartment in Kale Close, Mafoluku, Oshodi.
According to Punch, Lucky stabbed his wife, went home and stabbed his baby, David, to death, ripping out the toddler’s intestines.

He didn’t stop there, he turned the knife on himself in an attempt to take his own life.
As fate would have it however, Lucky and his wife survived but both are presently in critical conditions.

Narrating her side of the story, the corporal’s wife, Dupe, 30 said, “We got married and started living together around October 2013. We usually had quarrels and that was not the first time he would beat me up, and send me out of the house. But this incident started on Sunday, October 26. Lucky had initially kept N15,000 with me.

“Then, on Sunday, he collected N5, 000 to repair the bus. Later I gave him the rest, only to realise it was N8, 000. So, he began to question where I kept the remaining N2000. But I knew that it was his nature to stir up trouble because he had a habit of keeping money with me and going again to take it. So, we began to fight, and he asked me to leave the house. He did not allow me to take the child with me that day. I was sleeping in friends’ places until Thursday when I decided to go back home. I did not find my baby, and when I asked him, he threatened that if he met me in the house by evening, he would kill me, kill the baby and himself.”

Dupe said she was then called by her mother to come to their family house in Mushin, adding that as she got on her way, and was at the Olorunshogo junction, a commercial bus swerved to her path and hit her several times.
“The commercial bus was his bus. He was the only man inside. He hit me and I fell. Then he reversed and came over my legs again. I lost consciousness. That was the last thing I knew.”

One of Dupe’s relatives, Mr. Segun Akiode, told Punch that the family had yet to inform Dupe of her son’s death.
He added that the family also did not know Lucky’s whereabouts.
He said, “I was called on the phone on Thursday evening that my sister was knocked down at Olorunshogo junction. When I got there, I met her in a pool of blood. So, we rushed her to a hospital. It was already around 9.30pm.

“On Friday, when we went to their apartment, we found the baby boy, stabbed in the belly and already dead on the floor. We have not told Dupe about his death yet. So, we went to report at the Akinpelu Police Division, and we were asked to describe the bus which hit Dupe. When we did, they said the bus was with them in the station, but the whereabouts of Lucky was still unknown”.
