Woman arrested for beating husband to death


 By CHRISTOPHER OJI
Residents of Erinfolami Street, off Ago Palace Way, Okota, Lagos, were thrown into mourning as a woman allegedly beat her husband to death at the weekend. However, the police are presently interrogating the woman to establish her culpability. Daily Sun reliably gathered that the woman simply identified, as Chikodili and her husband were always quarelling.

 A resident who spoke on condition of anonymity told Daily Sun that on the fateful day, the woman and her husband engaged each other in a heated argument that later snowballed into a fight. He said he heard the man shouting, “my wife has killed me” and the wife ran out of the room to a neighbour’s apartment.

 The source said, neighbours were afraid to enter the man’s house to avert the wrath of his wife. He said a policeman who lives in the house later summoned courage and entered the man’s house and discovered the man lying on the floor crying, “my stomach, my stomach.” The eyewitness continued that the policeman and other neighbours rushed the man to a nearby hospital, where he was confirmed dead by the doctor.

 Lagos State Police spokesman, Mr. Jaiyeoba Joseph who confirmed the story said the police were still trying to find out what exactly happened between the man and the woman. He said preliminary investigation showed that the deceased and the wife had a domestic quarrel and during the fight, the women ran out to a neighbours’ house.
 He said a policeman intervened and assisted the man, but the help could not save the man’s life.
 His corpse has been deposited at public mortuary for autopsy.
