A woman named Olanshile Nasirudeen, 47 has been nabbed by the police for allegedly stabbing her 51-year-old husband to death.
The police in a statement said the suspect who is a co-butcher and 4th wife of the deceased, was arrested following a distress call received by the DPO of Obalende divisional headquarters, Ijebu-Ode.
It was gathered that Olanshile saw the woman recently impregnated by her husband at the abattoir, and started questioning the woman on why she had an affair with her husband.
“This led to a hot argument between her and the deceased, as a result of which the suspect picked a knife, and stabbed the deceased at the back joint of his left leg, thereby, cutting one of his veins.
He was quickly rushed to a nearby hospital for first aid, and later transferred to Ijebu Ode General hospital where he eventually gave up the ghost while receiving treatment, due to excessive bleeding.
Upon a distress call, the DPO Obalende division, SP Murphy Salami, led his men to the scene, but the suspect had took to flight before their arrival. She was subsequently traced, and was eventually arrested in her hideout at Mobalufon area of Ijebu Ode.
On interrogation, the suspect, who happened to be the fourth wife of the deceased, claimed that it was her husband who first slapped her simply because she asked his new wife her mission at her market stand,” he said.
