A man simply identified as Abdulateef, has been allegedly stabbed to death with a kitchen knife by his wife, in an attempt to save and conceal the identity of his lover.

The incident reportedly occurred at his residence at Jattu, Etsako West Local Government of Edo State, at about 3am on Sunday.


It was gathered that the deceased who used to visit the first wife who lives elsewhere to spend the night with her, got wind of rumours alleging that another man do visit his wife whenever he went to see his first wife in her rented apartment.

On that fateful day, the deceased allegedly came home from his first wife’s apartment, only to meet a man with his younger wife in their bedroom.

A source had it that an argument ensued between the couple, which resulted in the wife attacking her husband with a knife and he died almost immediately.

The source added that the deceased got hold of the intruder, but that in the process, his wife grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed her husband twice on his stomach, apparently to pave way for her fleeing lover’s escape, and perhaps make it look like robbery attack.

“The man was living with two wives in his house but had to rent an apartment for his first wife in a different location to allow peace to reign while staying with the junior one in his house,” the source said.

The suspect, who was said to have been arrested by policemen in the area, was saved from being lynched by an angry mob by the quick arrival of the police.

The spokesman of Edo State Police Command, SP. Kotongs Bello, could not confirm the incident, saying that he was yet to be briefed.
