23-Year Old Housewife Explains Why She Stabbed Husband To Death

Mrs. Damilola Ayeni, 23, a young housewife has given the reason why she stabbed her husband Olumide Ayeni, to death.

The deceased died on Friday, August 3, 2018 at the Lagos Island General Hospital, same hospital where he worked.

Damilola, who reportedly stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife over suspicion of infidelity, said she did not set out to kill him but lost control due to anger. She mentioned that their two years old marriage was characterized with suspicions of infidelity and mistrust, which resulted in constant quarrelling and fighting. It was during one of those fights that she lost control and murdered her husband.

The mother of two added that she has not come to terms with what happened on that day and wish it never happened.

She has been charged before the Ebute Metta Magistrates court and arraigned for murder. The prosecutor, Inspector Mana Dauda, informed the court that it was a case of domestic violence that led to the death of the victim.
