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.”
