Nursing mother stabs husband to death in Ebonyi  
« on: November 27, 2012, 06:56:44 AM »
EBONYI State police command, weekend, arrested a 24-year-old nursing mother, Mrs. Edith Okoji, for allegedly stabbing her husband to death after a quarrel revolving around infidelity.

The incident which occurred last Sunday at No. 8 Eze Street, Abakaliki, generated lots of insinuations as bewildered neighbours in the area were seen discussing the matter in small groups.

Briefing newsmen on the incident, Ebonyi State Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mr. Sylvester Igbo, said the deceased, Mr. Oyenel Okoji, was an Assistant Superintendent of Immigration attached to Ebonyi State Headquarters of the agency.

According to him, investigation so far conducted by the police on the matter indicated that the accused, who already had three children for the man, may have carried out the act on the ground that her husband was suspecting her of infidelity.

The police spokesman revealed that the accused, who was a law student of Nigeria Open University, had admitted committing the crime but blamed it on the devil.

The body of the deceased, who hailed from Ahoda-East local government area of River State as the wife, had been deposited at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, FETHA, for autopsy.
