OMG! Wife Kills Husband, Sliced His Throat While Sleeping

It's normal for husband and wife to have issues, but if you sense that it is too serious at a time then one of the couple should walk away from the house until tension die down for the sake of peace. The way people resort to grievous acts of violence in marriage these days is frightening, to say the least.

As you read this, detective at the Lagos State CID, Panti, Yaba, have unraveled the circumstances that led to the killing of a 49-year old man, Lucky Bassey, by his own wife.

He was killed by his wife, Grace, who used a kitchen knife to slice his throat while he was sleeping.

Lucky bled profusely and helplessly as Grace watched and ensured that he died before she alerted some of their neigbours, a police source said.

The incident happened at 23 Abari street in Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos where they reside. Following the manner with which the late Lucky died, the matter was reported to police and the wife was arrested.

During serious interrogation she confessed and implicated one Benjamin Otu as her accomplice in the act.

Otu was later arrested and the matter was transferred to SCID Panti for further investigation.

According to report, Grace and Otu confessed to the act. But Otu insisted that it was Grace that used a knife to cut her throat while he bled and died.

On the role Otu played, the police source said he assisted Grace by holding down her husband (Lucky) on the bed to make sure he's subdued before Grace had access to slit his throat.

The couple who are from Akwa Ibom had some serious disagreement before the unfortunate incident.

According to PM News, the suspects, Grace and Otu, have been charged before Ebutta Metta Magistrate’s court with conspiracy and murder under the Criminal Code.

They were arraigned before the presiding Magistrate, Mrs M.O. Olajuwon.

Their plea was not taken, rather the Magistrate ordered them to be remanded in prison custody.

The court directed the prosecutor to send their file to the Directorate for public prosecution for advice.

The court is waiting for DPP advice to proceed with their prosecution and conviction.
