The man, Enoch Adamu, had inflicted knife cuts on his lover, Ashini Hosea, in the premises of the Criminal Area Court II, Yola, and left her in pain.
While Ashini Hosea was rushed to the Federal Medical Center (FMC) in Yola for medical attention, Enoch was apprehended and taken to the CID.
In his apparent bid to escape the CID investigators, Enoch was said to have jumped from the staircase of the building of the CID. With the impact of landing on the ground, he became unconscious.
He, like Ashini, was rushed to the FMC Yola.
Enoch Adamu, identified as a resident of Sangere in Yola South Local Government Area, was said to have stabbed Ashini after a sudden failure of an arrangement to have her refund him N85,000; being expenses he was said to have incurred on her while they were lovers.
Counsel to Ashini, Barr. Ibrahim Saidu, had written for a reversal of the earlier arrangement for Ashini to pay Enoch all expenses he made on her, an application which succeeded, to Enoch’s anger.
Earlier in his oral application, Barr. Ibrahim told Musa Garta-led Area Court that he was not aware of the terms of settlement about his client agreeing to refund the man’s expenses, neither did he know of any earlier admission of liability by his client to the allegations made by Enoch.
He, therefore, prayed the court to mention the case afresh, and the court did, upon which Ashini changed her earlier plea and denied liability of all the expenses incurred on her.
Immediately after the adjournment of the matter (to March 2, 2021) for commencement of hearing, Enoch walked up to Ashini who was standing outside the courtroom with her counsel Ibrahim, pulled out a knife and stabbed her in the chest and neck three times.
He tried to flee the court but was apprehended by police operatives and court officials who handed him to the police CID that whisked him to their office.
The entire court journey had started for Enoch on the 4th of this month when he instituted a suit against Ashini on a charge of deceitful marriage, telling the court that he fell in love with Ashini who later accepted his marriage proposal.
He said he spent his fortunes, paying a dowry and incurring other expenses totalling N120,000; only for Ashini to tell him later that she was no longer interested in the marriage plan, hence his decision to sue her.
It was further gathered that of the N120,000 supposedly spent on Ashini, Ashini had paid back N35,000 before the court process began, remaining the N85,000 now in question.

Man ate neighbor’s heart before stabbing young girl and killing his uncle
An American man has been accused of a triple murder, including cutting the heart out of his neighbour to eat at home.
A judge has heard how a US man, Lawrence Paul Anderson, 42, allegedly killed his neighbor at Chickasha, Oklahoma, before returning home with the heart and eating it.
In court the judge was told that Anderson “cooked the heart with potatoes to feed to his family to release the demons”.
He is also accused of killing his uncle Leon Pye, 67, and four-year-old girl Kaeos Yates at his own home.
He also allegedly stabbed his aunt Delsie Pye, who survived but has wounds in her eyes.
Law enforcement say Anderson confessed to the murder of his neighbour while he was being interviewed by law enforcement in hospital.
He was just released from prison in January, after a 20-year-sentence he was serving for drug and firearms offences committed while on parole.
He was commuted to nine years in 2017 but was released early in 2020.
Boko Haram terrorists slaughter 5 IDPs in Borno
Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have slaughtered five Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno state.
It was gathered that the insurgents attacked the IDPs when they went in search of firewood outside Damboa town on Thursday, February 18.
A vigilante, Abu Damboa, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust, said eight IDPs were declared missing when they didn’t return. He and his colleagues then embarked on a search-and-rescue operation.
“We got the report to that some IDPs were missing. So, we swang into action but later found five of them beheaded two kilometres away from the scene where they were falling trees. It was disheartening to see fellow human beings slaughtered like animals, they were all displaced persons, “Abu said.
Humanitarian sources said that the victims have been buried according to Islamic rites.
“Information received was that eight IDPs who went in search of firewood outside Damboa town some 6-8kms were abducted. Five dead bodies out of the eight missing IDPs were recovered this morning,” a humanitarian source revealed.
Meanwhile, the chairman of Damboa Local Govt, Prof. A G Alooma, his vice, Ali M Kauji and their councillors on Friday, paid a condolence visit to the families of the victims.
After praying for the victims, Prof delivered foodstuffs and cash for the three days prayers.
