A mother of four has been arrested by the Police in Lagos for allegedly killing her husband during a brawl over food, weekend, in Ikorodu area of Lagos.
The suspect, Mrs Folake Adekoya-Ojo, was arrested following reports by her late husband’s relative, one Olaoye, who suspected she had a hand in their brother’s death, following which she was invited by policemen at Shagamu Road Division, Vanguard reported.
The widow was said to have 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, policemen from the division were deplored by the Divisional Police Officer to inspect the late Emmanuel’s corpse where it was discovered to have a deep cut in the head.
On further interrogation, the widow reportedly admitted to have hit her husband with a stone during a scuffle.
The widow explained that her husband came home at about 11p.m. that fateful night demanding for food. She said she served him amala and okro soup, only for him to complain that it was not properly served. Rather than doing his bid, the widow reportedly ate the meal, an action she said infuriated her husband. This, as gathered, generated into a fight during which she claimed she hit him with a stone on the head in defence.
Mr Emmanuel, reportedly gave up the ghost at about 2.30 a.m.
