Christiana Odo, a Lagos trader who murdered her husband on Christmas Day was today charged for the murder of 48-year-old Romanus Odo.

  1. JUDGE, PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THE CHILDREN EARLY OPHANS. TAMPER JUSTICE WITH MERCY BECAUSE THE DEVIL DIDN’T GIVE HER THE BEST ADVICE.

  2. I feel bad for the woman just by looking at her face. From the write up by naijagists, it shows her husband MUST have been coming home drunk and she was tired and fed up. She decided to unconsciously dealt with him not knowing it would take a new turn.

    This is DEFINITELY not premeditated murder. It was unintentional and I would plead on her behalf that judge should be lenient. I know there is no way she can escape some sort of penalty in order to upload social order. I believe Judge should have her placed on psychiatric meds and counselling rather than simply sending her to jail or death sentence.

    Please whoever is in better position to forward this to court should please do. Don’t let the children lose both way. Id it had been premeditated incident would have been different. So sad.

  3. @AMANDA, THE WIFE DIDN’T “UNCONSCIOUSLY” KILL HIM BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT THE ONE THAT WAS DRUNK. SHE WAS IN HER FULL CONSCIOUSNESS. HER ACTION MAY NOT BE PREDETERMINED BUT IT WAS INTENTIONAL. WHY? IT’S BECAUSE SHE WENT STRAIGHT TO THE KITCHEN AND GOT THE KNIFE.

    • @MAN D BEST, “unconsciousness” doesn’t always mean being drunk or fainted. In this context, it means she must be fed up and rage and anger took the worst out of her. Deliberately going to the kitchen to pick up a knife is just that anger.

  4. Who said it wasn’t her intension to do so? Why didn’t she run away when she knew her husband was drunk as usally? Justice, if to be pardon it must be because of her children!
