Pregnant woman stabs hubby to death over plan to marry 2nd wife

A pregnant woman, Omowunmi Joseph (43), of Odoye area, Alaadorin, Ibadan North Local Government Area of Oyo State, on Monday morning, stabbed her husband, Joseph Nwankwo, to death around 2am while he was asleep.

Our correspondent learnt that earlier a crisis started between the two about two weeks ago when the hsuband told his wife that he wanted to marry a second wife from his home town.

According to our source, after committing the crime, Omowunmi reported herself at the Iyaganku police area command and that the command took her to Yemetu police division, close to the scene of the incident.

Our correspondent who visited the Yemetu police station on Monday morning learnt that the remains of the husband had been deposited in a morgue.

Effort to get the reaction of the police spokesman in the state, Adewale Osifeso, about the incident proved abortive.

Meanwhile, a police officer attached to the Operations Department, Eleyele police command, Ibadan, Michael Ogunlade, on Sunday, died while having sexual intercourse with his lover at a Hotel.

A source in the hotel informed our correspondent that he met the two lovers on the staircase while they were going into a room, and that a few minutes later the woman rushed down and started crying, that the man was dead.

“We quickly informed the police at the Iyaganku police division and they rushed to the scene, but before they took him to a nearby hospital, he had given up the ghost,” the source added.
