2 arrested as assailants attack Maersk MD, stab wife to death inside Ikoyi residence


THE police in Lagos State have arrested two people, including an estate electrician who attacked the Managing Director of Maersk Line Shipping Company, Gildas Tohouo, and his wife at their Lugard Road, Ikoyi residence on Sunday night.

Tohouo, a Cameroonian, sustained serious injuries in the attack, while his wife, a Hungary national, died before she could be taken to the hospital.

The electrician, in his confessional statement to the police, confessed to have carried out the attack, while blaming his action for Tohouo’s refusal to give him money after he had begged him on several occasions.

Tohouo and his wife were, on Sunday night, stabbed by the electrician, who had invited one of his friends for a robbery operation at the couple’s house.

The two suspects were identified as Ade Akanbi and Olamide Goke, while the police confirmed they had also recovered the two knives used during the attack.

A police source, who pleaded anonymity, while speaking with the Nigerian Tribune, said the electrician had lied to the man’s family that he wanted to carry out electrical repairs in the couple’s home following a power outage.
