A student of the Abia State Polytechnic, simply identified as Abel, has killed his landlord in the Immaculate area of Aba, Abia State for interrupting him during love-making.
It was gathered that Abel, a final year student of the Department of Architecture, allegedly stabbed the victim in the stomach during a heated argument at the lodge.
It was reported that the victim had ordered that no female visitor was allowed to spend the night in the lodge.
The suspect was alleged to have breached the rule and was challenged by the landlord, which led to a physical combat between them.
In the ensuing scuffle, the suspect was alleged to have grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim in the stomach, before taking to his heels.
The landlord reportedly died on the spot.
An eyewitness said the landlord barged into the room and met Abel and his girlfriend naked, which caused the fight.
