Friendship Turned Deadly: The Shocking Tale of Revenge in Lagos

Anita Ofili, a lady in Lagos, Nigeria, was recently arrested for allegedly stabbing her friend, Glory Okon, to death. The incident occurred on March 26 at Greenville Estate in the Ajah area of Lagos.

In a shocking confession, Ofili revealed that she waited for ten years to exact revenge on Okon, who she claims snatched her boyfriend a decade ago.

According to reports, tenants in the building were alerted by a shout for help coming from Ofili’s apartment at 1:20 p.m. Upon forcing the door open, they discovered Ofili thrusting a kitchen knife into Okon’s neck. Despite being rushed to the General Hospital on Lagos Island, Okon was confirmed dead due to excessive loss of blood.

Ofili’s confession to the crime is chilling. She and Okon had been friends for nearly two decades and attended the same tertiary institution. A misunderstanding between them over Okon’s alleged relationship with Ofili’s ex-boyfriend tore them apart for a decade before they reconciled two weeks prior to the fatal incident.

On that fateful day, both women had returned from a party before the tragedy occurred.

Ofili’s shocking confession has left family members and friends stunned. Some who visited the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department (SCIID) distanced themselves from her, stating they knew she had character flaws, but never thought she could go to such an extent.

Upon visiting Ofili’s apartment, police sources recovered tramadol, which they suspect was used to drug Okon. The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the arrest of the suspect and her transfer to the SCIID, Yaba, for discreet investigation.
