“The girl has been arrested and is in custody. She will go to court for the wrong she has committed,” Koome said.
The lady apparently stabbed the midfielder after the two had an altercation when the lady posted a statement on social media belittling the midfielder after he denied responsibility for her pregnancy.
His club patron, Simon Alubala termed the midfielder a calm guy but could not comment much about the incident.
“He was not a temperamental person and when you see it getting to this point, then it must have been something very serious. We are saddened as a team but we will not say much because it is now in the hands of the police,” Alubala disclosed.
Ikatwa’s death comes at a time the team was preparing for its first season in the second tier, the National Super League.
