A love scorned man, Alex Onuora, and his accomplice Alia Ogor, on Tuesday stabbed two brothers, who are twins, after their younger sister refused to have an affair with him.

Due to the nature of the stabbing, one of the twins, Elvis Mekwa, bled to death, while his brother Kene is lying critically ill in a hospital in Lagos

According to reports, Onuora and his friend, Alia, had engaged them in a fight over their younger sister in front of a hotel owned by the wife of a popular musician, Segun Adewale, located at Liasu Road at Council bus stop, Ikotun.

Onuora had allegedly used a broken bottle to stab Elvis on the neck and he bled to death.
Before the fight, trouble was said to have started when their sister rebuffed an approach by Onuora and Alia to lure her to have sex in the hotel where they went to drink.

In anger, Onuora reportedly assaulted the girl, who in turn reported him to brothers.
When the twins approached Onuora, an altercation between them later resulted a brawl and ended in violence.

Onuora’s house at 51 Olalekan Adekoye has since been deserted as was said to have fled to evade arrest.
Although the police were yet to arrest up and his accomplice, they have since arrested the manager of the hotel where the incident happened, one Chibueze Anumudu and woman simply identified as Blessing.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police, who confirmed the incident, said investigations had commenced.
