April 22, 2014 – Woman Killed Unfaithful Husband With Knife Over Money In Ikorodu Lagos
Barely 2 years into their marriage, a wife has murdered her husband for refusing to take care of his responsibilities.
38-year-old Janet Fagbadebo allegedly stabbed her hubby, Kehinde Fagbadebo to death during an argument.
The stabbing took place at their home at 3 Ajegunle Owode st in Igbogbo area of Ikorodu Lagos.
We learnt the couple started having disagreement over marital unfaithfulness barely 2 years into their marriage.
On the fateful day, 43-year-old Kehinde was said to have told his wife that he would be going out for a party, without giving money for the upkeep of the house.
Janet, who allegedly suspected he was going out with a concubine, demanded money and tried to stop him from going out.
This resulted in an argument, while Janet was said to have forcefully dipped her hand into the deceased’s pocket.
The deceased allegedly slapped her and in a fit of anger. The Kogi State indigene reportedly dashed into the kitchen and reached for a knife which she used in stabbing her husband.
While Kehinde bled from his wound, Janeth alerted neighbours who rushed him to a hospital in the area.
He was confirmed dead at the hospital.
Janet was then arrested and arraigned before an Ebute Meta Magistrate’s court on one count of murder.
The charge reads, “That you, Janet Fagbadebo, on April 5, 2014 at about 12.30 hours, at 3, Ajegunle Owode Street, Igbogbo, Ikorodu Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully kill one Kehinde Abdulrasheed Fagbadegbo, aged 43 years, by stabbing him to death with a kitchen knife and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 221 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.”
The defendant’s plea was not taken. She was also not represented by any counsel.
The police prosecutor, Sergeant Cousin Adams, applied for her remand in prison pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution.
The Magistrate, K.O. Ogundare, ordered that she should be remanded in prison for the first 30 days permitted by law pending the release of the DPP legal advice.
