A man, Wahab Lawal has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command after he allegedly stabbed his wife, Bola to death in the Oto, Ebute Meta area of the state.
Wahab who friends described as having a hot temper is said to have killed his wife on March 26, after 5 previous failed attempts.
Recounting what happened, a friend of the deceased Mrs. Hadijat Abdulrasheed said Bola married Wahab after the death of her husband and she had two children for him in addition to the three she had from her previous marriage.
She explained that Bola had moved out of her husband’s house to stay with her prior to the incident after she was convinced her husband wanted to kill her. At one time, he had used a stool to hit her on the head just to wake her up, at another time, he had used a screw driver to stab her in the ear.
Mrs Abdulrasheed said that after Bola moved out of the house, she still went there once in a while to get a few things and also take care of her children.
On that fateful day, Wahab who was jobless had approached the deceased and begged for forgiveness but she refused. He also begged her to come back to the house which she declined and an argument ensued. It was during the argument that Wahab used a knife which he usually carries around to stab Bola and she bled to death.
Wahab was arrested after the incident was reported at the Iponri Police Division. He was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba.
Meanwhile, it was learnt that the deceased had been buried according to Islamic rites.
