US-based Nigerian Man Stabbed To Death By His Lover's Ex

A man is in custody after he allegedly fatally stabbed his ex-lover's new boyfriend on Thursday morning in front of her three children, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office in USA.

38-year-old Godson Akran (pictured above), will face a murder charge, the sheriff's office said later on Thursday. 
 
The murdered Nigerian man has been identified...
He's 43-year-old Taofeek Anifata. Authorities said Akran went to his ex-girlfriend's home in the 3700 block of Daintree Park Drive before the stabbing, which was reported about 4:30 a.m.

The woman called 911 sometime before the incident because her ex was trying to get into the house, Major Chad Norvell said. They have two children together but have been separated for two years.

The ex-boyfriend came back to the house, and the woman let him inside.

An argument ensued, and the ex-boyfriend grabbed a knife from the kitchen and stabbed the new boyfriend, Norvell said. Authorities later said Anifata was stabbed to death in front of the woman and her three children, all who are younger than 13.

Akran fled and was stopped on FM 1463. He had one other person in the car, although that person's role in the incident is unclear.
