A housewife has been arrested by the police in Edo State for allegedly stabbing her husband, identified simply as Abdulateef, to death after he caught her with another man in their matrimonial home.
DailyTrust reports that the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday, November 14, in Jattu-Uzairue, Etsako West Local Government of Edo State
According to a source, the suspect stabbed the deceased when he came home at about 3 am and met her with another man in their bedroom.
“The man was living with two wives in his house, but had to rent an apartment for his first wife in a different location to allow peace to reign while staying with the junior one in his house,” the source said.
The source said the deceased visits the first wife and spends the night there but there has been a rumour that another man visits his second wife every night when he is not at home. The deceased came home that night from his first wife’s rented apartment only to meet a man with his junior wife in their bedroom.
The deceased allegedly got hold of the visitor and in the process, the woman stabbed him twice on his stomach apparently to pave way for the alleged lover’s escape and make it look like a robbery attack.
The source said that Abdulateef d*ed as a result of the injury, adding that the quick arrival of the police saved the suspect from being killed by a mob.
