In a similar incident, a woman, Folashade Idoko, stabbed her husband, Lawrence, to death with a knife after he allegedly received a telephone call from a suspected female lover at their home in Ayetoro, Oto-Awori area of Lagos.
A neighbour of the couple, Aga-Samuel Barti, said before the incident, Joshua had been accusing the wife of maintaining an extramarital affair, adding that it was the reason for their argument.
Meanwhile, in Lagos, Folashade stabbed her husband, Lawrence, to death around 11pm on Sunday. It was learnt that the couple, who had been married for four years, also have two kids.
It was gathered that Lawrence, an engineer working in Ogun State, returned home that day after a week-long official duty. The wife reportedly accused him of engaging in extra-marital affair and an argument ensued.
In a fit of anger, Folashade reportedly stabbed him to death with a kitchen knife. She was later arrested. A neighbour, Mrs. Blessing Olokpobri, said the wife, Folashade, was aggressive and violent, adding that people always tried to avoid having issues with her.
She said, “There was hardly a day they didn’t fight if the husband was at home. There was a time she went to meet him at a beer parlour. She dragged and stripped him. There was even a time she sliced his ear lobes with a broken bottle and it had to be stitched.”
