Policewoman On The Rub After Stabbing Husband In Lagos
A policewoman identified as Folake Ogunbodede, has been accused of fleeing after stabbing her husband, Taiwo in their home in Ipaja area of Lagos State.
The Policewoman attached to the Ipaja police station, stabbed her husband after a misunderstanding ensued between them yesterday morning. Taiwo who was warned never to return to the house after he left following the misunderstanding, was stabbed by his wife after he returned home late last night, because he had no where else to go to.
Eyewitnesses disclosed that Taiwo returned home last night, thinking that his wife would have calmed down. It reportedly took the intervention of their neighbours as he would have been killed by his wife, who left him lying motionless as at the time of his rescue.
The Policewoman reportedly fled the scene, leaving her husband fighting for his life at the hospital he was rushed to.
Few weeks ago, it was also reported that a woman, Damilola Ayeni, was arrested by the police for allegedly stabbing her husband, Olumide Ayeni (36), in the chest, which led to his death. The incident occurred at No 78, Bamgbose Street, Lagos Island, Lagos.
It was learnt that the woman was the third wife of the deceased. According to friends of the deceased, who have two children, Damilola and Olumide are planning to celebrate their ‘marriage’ anniversary in a few months’ time. Damilola was said to have started a fight with her husband when Olumide got home. The woman reportedly stabbed the man during the fight. The injured Olumide was rushed to a hospital close to Lagos Island General Hospital, where he eventually bled to death.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CSP Chike Oti, said that Damilola had been arrested while the victim’s body was deposited at the morgue of the same hospital for autopsy. Oti said that preliminary investigation was in progress with a view to transferring the case to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba, for discreet investigation.
