Nigerian who stabbed Ugandan was her 'live-in lover'

A Nigerian national, who is accused of stabbing a 30-year-old Ugandan woman at Banjara Layout, Horamavu, in eastern Bengaluru last week, was arrested from his home in Horamavu Agara on Monday night, police said. 

Onsas, the suspect, told the jurisdictional Hennur police that Shakira, a businesswoman from Uganda, had been his live-in lover for a few months. Sometime ago, she “ditched” him for another man. On February 10, he bumped into her at Africano Kitchen, a restaurant in Ramamurthy Nagar, attacked her and fled. 

The incident came to light on Saturday night after the woman lodged a complaint at the Hennur police station. She said she was into garment business. It emerged that she was overstaying her business visa as she was living in the City for the past one year.  She initially cooked up the story that she was injured in a road accident. In her police complaint, she claimed that Onsas  attacked her for refusing to buy him a drink. 

Police are checking Onsas’s passport and visa but said he was not giving clear answers about the purpose of his stay in Bengaluru.
