Policemen from Lagos Command have arrested a woman who allegedly killed her husband for refusing to provide money for cooking food for Christmas celebration.
The woman, Christaiana Odo,allegedly stabbed her husband, Rominus Odo with a kitchen knife at their Ikorodu residence on London Barber Street, Majidun, about 6pm after her husband beat her following intense argument and exchange of abuses over his failure to provide money.
It was gathered that the mother of three held her husband and prevented him from leaving the house when he said he had no money to give.Christiana insisted she was not going to release him until he provided the money and this led to a fight.
The man screamed for help and this attracted their neighbours while policemen from Owode Onirin division were called by neighbours.The woman was handcuffed and moved out of the house to the station.
Dolapo Badmos, Police Public Relations Officer,who confirmed the incident, said the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba,(SCIID) and that the report of the autopsy was being awaited.
