An High Court in Lagos on Monday ordered that a lawyer, Udeme Otike-Odibe, be remanded in prison following her arraignment for allegedly killing her husband and mutilating his body.

Otike-Odibe, 47, was slammed with a two-count charge of murder and tampering with a body, contrary to Sections 223 and 165(b) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The offences are punishable by death and five years imprisonment.

Prosecuting Counsel Babatunde Sunmonu told Justice Adedayo Akintoye that Otike-Odibe stabbed Symphorosa (Sym), 50, to death with a knife and severed his genital.

She allegedly attempted to commit suicide afterwards.

The court heard that the incident occurred on May 3, at the couple’s diamond Estate, Sangotedo, Ajah, Lagos home during a quarrel.

The prosecutor said the offences contravened Sections 223 and 165 (b) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The accused first appeared before a Yaba Magistrates’ Court and was remanded in prison pending advice by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The defendant pleaded not guilty.

Justice Akintoye adjourned till October 8.

The defendant’s arraignment followed the DPP’s May 21 report which indicted her for murder.

The deceased, who hailed from Kwale in Delta State, was also a lawyer. He married Udeme from Akwa Ibom State, three years ago. They have no children.

  1. SHE IS A LOOSER IN THIS GAME,

    WHY SHOULD YOU KILL YOUR HUSBAND FOR,
    IF YOUR MARRIAGE IS NOT GOOD, WHY NOT JUST WALK OUT OF IT,

    BUT, YOU LET ALL THESE OUTDATED PASTORS, DECEIVED YOU THAT MARRIAGE IS FOR LIFE, PLEASE THERE IS NOTHING LAST FOR LIFE. NOBODY EVER TAUGHT YOU TO LOVE YOURSELF FIRST AND IT IS NOT SELFISH.

    YOU KILLED YOUR PARTNER BECAUSE YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

    YOU ARE NOT MADE TO LAST FOREVER, SO WHY EXPECTING YOUR MARRIAGE TO LAST FORVER FOR.
    IF YOUR WEDDING WAS YESTERDAY AND YOU DISCOVER THIS MORNING THAT YOUR HUSBAND OR YOUR WIFE IS AN ASSHOLE OR SHITHOLE,

    PLEASE PACK YOUR BAGS RIGHT NOW AND GO ELSEWHERE AND BE IN PEACE INSTEAD OF KILLING AND RUIN YOUR OWN LIFE,

    YOU ARE A LOOSER IN THIS GAME. YOU KILLED HIM BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF.
