JESUS FORGIVES ME! Nigerian man stabs, disembowels 62-year-old wheelchair-bound woman 116 times in the US


US authorities are holding a Nigerian national in custody after he allegedly stabbed a 62-year-old wheelchair-bound woman 116 times.

The Police said 31-year-old Kehinde Afolayan stabbed Deborah Lynch in her chest and abdominal region, leaving her partially disembowelled.

WuzupNaija gathered that Afolayan committed the act last Friday and was charged on Tuesday with one count of first-degree intentional homicide.

If convicted, Afolayan faces up to life in prison.

South Milwaukee Police Chief William Jessup said,

“We believe they had a relationship. We believe he was in fact, the suspect, was in fact staying in the same apartment with the victim. Exactly what that relationship was we still don’t know.”

According to reports, a witness peered through a window of the apartment on Clarke Avenue in South Milwaukee after being alerted by his sister to a commotion inside and saw Afolayan stab Deborah Lynch as she sat in her wheelchair.

She alerted officers who found Lynch sitting motionless in her wheelchair, breathing but unresponsive. A Flight for Life helicopter was called but Lynch passed away before being loaded onto the aircraft, the complaint said.

Officers arrested Afolayan at the apartment after finding him holding a blood-covered undershirt. Investigators said they found three bloody knives in and near the building, one of which was missing the blade.

Afolayan’s Federal Republic of Nigeria identification card was found in the living room, a search warrant said.

Police said they were unable to interview Afolayan because he was not communicative, not even providing his name. He was, however, uttering statements such as, “Jesus forgives me.”

Lynch’s son, who also lived in the apartment, told officers that Afolayan had been living with them since October. The son was not home during the attack, the complaint said.
