Mother of 4 arrested for allegedly killing husband
The Lagos state Police command over the weekend arrested a mother of four for allegedly killing her husband, Mr Emmanuel during a brawl over food in Ikorodu area of the state.
The suspect, Mrs. Folake Adekoya-Ojo, was arrested following reports by her late husband’s relative, one Olaoye, who suspected that she had a hand in his brother’s death, consequently, she was invited by policemen at Shagamu Road Division.
DailyPost gathered that the accused denied having a hand in her husband’s death but rather told policemen that her 37-year-old husband committed suicide by hanging himself on the ceiling fan, last Friday, while her in-laws insisted that their late brother was hacked to death.
Consequently, the Divisional Police Officer, Mr Bernard Odiagbonya deployed some policemen from the division to inspect the late Emmanuel’s corpse where it was discovered that it has a deep cut on the head.
On further interrogations, the widow reportedly confessed to have hit her husband with a stone during a brawl.
She explained that her husband came home at about 11p.m. that fateful night demanding for food. According to the bereaved woman, served him amala and okro soup, only for him to complain that it was not properly served. The widow reportedly ate the meal, an action she said infuriated her late husband.
This, we gathered, generated into a fight during which she claimed she hit him with a stone on the head in defense.
