Tragedy struck at the oil rich city of Warri, Delta State at the weekend when a pregnant woman and an unidentified young man were stabbed to death by a suspected mad man.
It was gathered that the unidentified expectant mother was in labour last Saturday morning and while waiting for a taxi to take her to the hospital along the notorious Mac-Dermott Road, the mad man attacked her with a knife.
Daily Sun gathered that the suspected lunatic rushed at the woman and a young man, who wanted to protect her, was first stabbed to death.
Sources told Daily Sun that people were ‘scared stiff’ of the assailant who brandished other dangerous weapons. The pregnant woman, said to be in her early thirties, was rushed to a nearby hospital but she later gave up the ghost.
It was further gathered that the husband of the deceased expectant mother was not at home when the incident happened. Meanwhile, the remains of the victims have been deposited at a hospital morgue even as residents of the area are gripped with fear.
