A 24-year-old girl, Miss Tosin Alabi, has reportedly been stabbed to death by her male partner over some unsolved issues.

Tosin, an apprentice in a computer institute was stabbed by her boy friend (name withheld) at a popular hotel in Ado Ekiti a couple of days ago.

It was gathered that the two friends had gone to the hotel to cool off but the male friend refused to fulfill the promise made to the deceased.

Other clients in the hotel did not know when the trouble started between the lovers that it resulted to loss of a life.

According to the elder brother of the deceased, Elder Owolabi Paul, who spoke to journalists in Ado-Ekiti yesterday, the incident, occurred on Saturday, March 24, at a popular hotel in the town.

His words, “On Sunday, March 24, a friend of Toyin called us to inform us that she was stabbed to death with broken bottle at a hotel in Ado-Ekiti and that we should go to the State Teaching Hospital to see her corpse in the hospital’s morgue. We went there and confirmed her corpse.”

According to him, findings at the hotel revealed that trouble broke out between the lovers following alleged refusal of the boyfriend to fulfill an earlier promise made to the girl before sex.

Tosin was said to have challenged her boy friend on the need to redeem his pledge and demanded that he fulfilled his earlier promise.
It was further gathered that the male friend shortly after this headed for empty bottles with which he allegedly used to stab Toyin at the neck and buttocks.

Consequently, the deep cut suffered by the deceased resulted into profuse bleeding. She was said to have been rushed to a nearby hospital but due to the absence of doctors to attend to her, Tosin was rushed to the State Teaching Hospital where she finally gave up the ghost.

The family of the deceased has pleaded with the police and other security operatives to carry out a thorough investigation into the mysterious death of their daughter.

According to Elder Owolabi, police are yet to make any arrest since the killing was reported at the Ologede Police Station, Ajilosun, Ado-Ekiti.

He expressed his disappointment that the police had not invited the owner of the hotel for questioning since the report was lodged on Sunday.

“By now, the police ought to have been made some arrest including the owner of the hotel. The police said the father of Tosin’s boy friend was arrested but later released. We don’t know why they (police) should release the father whose son stabbed our sister.

“We want the police to do a thorough job; we are suspecting a foul play. The police are not making any effort to get to the root of the matter and we are disappointed,” the family’s spokesman lamented.
