47-year-old woman in police net for stabbing her 51-year-old husband to death in Ogun


The Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a 47-year-old-woman identified as Olanshile Nasirudeen for allegedly stabbing her 51-yr-old husband to death.

The arrest of the suspect was confirmed in a statement issued on Wednesday by DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, spokesperson of the state police command, who said that the suspect was arrested following a distress call received by the DPO Obalende divisional headquarters, ijebu ode.

DSP Oyeyemi said that the suspect, who is a co- butcher with the deceased, sighted a woman who her husband recently impregnated at the abattoir, and started questioning the woman about her audacity to get pregnant for her own 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 the distress call, the Dpo Obalende division, SP Murphy Salami, led his men to the scene, but the suspect had taken 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, ”the statement read.
