- Suspect who is a father of two is presently in police custody
Taofeek Oluwanishola Anifata, a Nigerian man living in the USA, was allegedly killed by his girlfriend’s ex in a brutal way. As it appeared, the young man was stabbed to death by the suspect.
The tragic incident which took place in Fort Bend County, Katy in the state of Texas was reportedly occasioned by a fellow Nigerian Godson Akran. Godson who had broken up with his ex-girlfriend for a space of two years got into a nasty fight with her. Their ugly disagreement extended to Taofeek, the new boyfriend, and ended in his death on Thursday, August 16.
Even worse, the victim was killed right in front of the suspect’s two children age 4 and 12, and the 2-year-old kid the girlfriend had for the victim.
As gathered by NAIJ.com, the 38-year-old Akran had earlier been reported by his former girlfriend when he came to her house located in the 3700 block of Daintree Park Court, off Tamarron Parkway to start a fight. Upon leaving her house after the argument, she called 911.
This did not deter the suspect from returning again and picking up a fresh quarrel with Taofeek who was in his girlfriend’s house at the moment. After they dragged it out for a while, Akran took to the knife and used it on the new boyfriend in the presence of their collectively owned children.

"God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my brother,
In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may he rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever. TAOFEEK OLUWANISHOLA ANIFATA R.I.P"
