A Nigerian man, identified as Adebayo Adeseko, has committed suicide after killing Sarah Adesanya, his girlfriend, in the Ojodu area of Lagos state.


A now-deleted video on social media shows the couple lying lifeless in a pool of blood.

In a series of posts on X, a user identified as @lahyorbronze confirmed Adesanya’s demise.

The lady referred to Adesanya as her sister, adding that the news of her death was delivered by a neighbour.


“My sister boyfriend has finally murdered her 💔💔💔💔💔 My worst fear has come to pass 😭😭💔,” she wrote.

“I do not know what happened or how it happened. Her neighbour called to break the news. My worst fear has come to pass.”


The user added that she had made efforts to report previous incidents of domestic abuse by her sister’s boyfriend to the authorities.

She said they failed to intervene, insisting that the victim needed to file a report.

“I reported at the station but the police said they can’t do anything until she makes the report herself @NigeriapolicePR Now she can’t report in person,” she added.

Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos police command spokesperson, confirmed the incident on Monday.


The police spokesperson said the incident was reported to the Ojodu police division on Sunday at about 9:10 am.

Hundeyin said a team of operatives from the station immediately went to the scene and evacuated the corpses to the mortuary for autopsy.

He added that there is an ongoing investigation into the circumstances surrounding their deaths.
