A housewife has allegedly stabbed her husband to death over sex demand, the police in Oyo State have said.
Police spokesman in the state, Adewale Osifeso, said the housewife stabbed her husband with a knife on the chest leading to his death.
Osifeso made this known when the 27-year-old suspect was paraded alongside other criminals before reporters on Wednesday.
According to NAN, Osifeso disclosed that the stabbing took place on November 16 at the couple’s residence at Oko-Oba, Oyo town, when the deceased attempted to have sexual intercourse with his wife who resisted the move.
The resistance led to a struggle between the deceased and the suspect during which he collected and smashed the wife’s phone on the ground.
In retaliation, the suspect went for a knife and stabbed the deceased in the chest resulting in his death.
Osifeso added that the deceased husband and the suspect returned to their home on the same day of the incident after three months of separation as a result of a misunderstanding.
He said the suspect had confessed to the crime and would be charged in court at the completion of investigation.
The suspect was one of 25 others paraded over allegations of murder, armed robbery, burglary, stealing, cultism, kidnap and conspiracy in the state.
