An unidentified woman has been arrested by the police for allegedly stabbing her husband to death during a violent domestic altercation at their home in Ikorodu.
According to Instablog9ja which broke the news, the mother of two, who also works as a teacher at a local school, had been enduring a violent marriage. Yesterday, while the deceased allegedly battered her, she grabbed a knife in self-defence and ‘accidentally’ plunged it into his body.
“I didn’t kill him intentionally. He was always battering me. Today, he pinned me down and started beating me again,” she says in the video shared by the bloggers. “I picked the knife to scare him, but I mistakenly stabbed him. I couldn’t have killed my husband intentionally. In the past, I used to run out of the house when being beaten, but today, he locked everywhere to prevent my escape.”
She continued, “My family have told me to divorce him but I didn’t want to, because he is the husband of my youth and we already have two children together. You can ask around, everyone knows he beats me always.”
She is currently detained at the Igbogbo Police Station.
