A man identified as Chris has been stabbed into a coma at Mile 3 Diobu, Port Harcourt, by one Simiyu Ganiyu, aka ‘Olowo’ over an accusation of having affairs with his ex-wife.

Chris was said to have come for burial, but he was followed and ambushed by Simiyu Ganiyu and his boys, who stabbed him several times before being rescued by some vigilante members in the area.

The Chief Security Officer of Nkpolu Oroworukwo, Mile 3 Diobu, Port Harcourt, Godstime Ihunwo, in an interview with our correspondent condemned the attempted murder of Chris by Olowo and his boys and called for his immediate arrest.
