Operatives of Ogun State Police Command have arrested Olanshile Nasirudeen, a 47-year-old woman, for allegedly stabbing Jimoh Nasirudeen, her husband to death for impregnating another woman.
Olanshile killed Nasirudeen on Wednesday during an argument between her and her late husband.
ANLNews learned that the suspect was the fourth wife of the deceased and worked in the same abattoir with him.
DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident in a statement on Thursday.
The PPRO noted that the woman stabbed her husband in the leg.
Oyeyemi explained that argument ensued between the couple when the woman reportedly questioned her husband’s lover for getting pregnant for him.
He added, “She started questioning the woman about her audacity to get pregnant for 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 the Ijebu-Ode General Hospital, where he eventually gave up the ghost while receiving treatment due to excessive bleeding.
“Upon a distress call, the Obalende DPO, SP Murphy Salami, led his men to the scene, but the suspect had taken to flight before their arrival.
“She was subsequently traced and arrested in her hideout at the 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 corpse of the deceased has been released to the family for burial in accordance with Islamic rites after autopsy was conducted.”
