Mr Isaac Ajisegiri, a 31-year-old Nigerian man who killed his wife, Endurance Ajisegiri in Lagos on Saturday has been arrested.
Endurance’s in-laws were also arrested by the police.
This sad cold-blood murder case happened at the deceased’s home at 1 Ajani Salawu st in Shasha area of Lagos on Saturday April 13, 2013.
According to police authorities, Endurance was slit in the throat with a knife in her own kitchen.
The deceased brother who reported the case to the police said Endurance and Isaac constantly engage in serious fight before a recent reconciliation that brought the two together.
“They have been married for about four years and they had a child together. They also run an education consulting firm not too far from their house.
“Problem started after Isaac was accused of having an affair with one of their employees. They fought over the issue for quite some time. She even moved out of the house but they later reconciled.
“On Saturday, one Stanley, who happens to be Isaac’s friend, came to pick her (Endurance) from the office, saying her husband’s family were waiting for her at the house to resolve a dispute.” – The deceased brother told police
Isaac Ajisegiri later confessed that Endurance killed herself with a kitchen knife.
Isaac said Endurance, a Kogi state indigene was acting crazy before she eventually killed herself.
This case is now being handled by Lagos state criminal investigation unit in Yaba.
Below is a very useful advice from Project Alert director for women going through abusive relationship :
“Marriage is not a do-or-die affair. Anyone who is in an abusive relationship should feel free to walk out. The neighbours and the police also need to be more involved in this battle so that we can prevent deaths or harm to people.”
Effah-Chukwumah said cases of violence against women had risen in recent months.
How can a woman slit her own throat.. something is not right here.
May her soul rest in perfect peace.
