Oct 21, 2013 – Wife Kills Husband During Fight In Akure Ondo State; Flees With Children

A 16-year-old mother of two, Ebere Ogu, has allegedly stabbed his 35-year-old husband, Patrick, to death in Akure, the OndoState capital, during a fight, and has fled with her children.

Detectives from the criminal Investigation Division of the state Police Command are presently looking for her.

Vanguard gathered that the crime was committed last Thursday at their number 70 Ijapo extension residence in Akure at 5a.m.

Chinedu, a native of ImoState was a staff of Owena River Basin Authority, Alagbaka in Akure.

A co-tenant, who gave his name as Kelechi, said: “Ebere and Patrick frequently engage in fights but on Thursday, October 17, at 5a.m., the couple began to fight.

“Most times they engage in such fights, I go there to settle it. But on this fateful morning, when I got into their room I saw Ebere holding a knife against her husband so I pleaded with her to drop the knife and pleaded with Patrick not to beat his wife.

“At the first attempt I succeeded in separating them. So Ebere dropped the knife. But as soon as Patrick saw that his wife had dropped the knife, he seized the opportunity to pounce on her and gave her another beating.

How he died

“I told Patrick to stop, but I noticed that when he tried to move away he slumped and that was when I screamed for help and called other members of the house.

“When we entered the apartment we realised that Patrick was already on the floor. So people began to urge Ebere to lift her husband up. She eventually did and we saw that the father of two was already bleeding.

“We were all shocked and most of the people took to their heels. Ebere escaped with her two kids to an unknown destination.”

Police image-maker, Wole Ogodo, confirmed the ugly incident.

Ogodo said: “One Mr. Tuyi, who is the landlord of the house the couple lived in, reported the incident to the Police Station on Thursday 17, at 6.45a.m.

Ogodo said that policemen are searching for the suspected killer, while the corpse of the deceased had been deposited at the Akure State Specialist Hospital morgue for autopsy.

  3. Sad,in my own opinion is called self defenses,35 to 16 with two kids when she should be in school under her parents care, that’s child abuse.how do you expect a baby to have kids,may God have mercy on you and her parents.

  4. U all are ***** for ur comment, 12 is above to marry, it was just normal misunderstanding and she went too far, is it 2day they marry, little brain like u people.

  5. D Ebere is partly at fault.. Why marry someone that olser dan she is? Of course, he’l see her as a child or maid, nt a wife..
    Very funny oo. She shuld jst surrender nd face trial…

  6. The case is less than what we can call criminal case, its call tort in law.
    Looking to the scenario of the case, the woman has a strong defense with the witness. The rule of law says she’s privilege to response with reasonable deadly force if her life is threatened with likely to cause death or serious body injury. So she has a good case here.
