FLASH | Husband Kills Wife’s Lover

by on September 12, 2016
The Police in Delta State have confirmed the arrest of a woman whose husband allegedly killed her estranged lover, Robinson Otuke.
Otuke was stabbed to death Saturday in front of his residence along Eme­biren Street in Okumagba Layout in Warri, Delta State.
The late Otuke was stabbed close to his neck following a heated argu­ment between him and Ochuko, husband to his suspected lover, Rose Ochuko.
According to eyewit­ness who spoke to our cor­respondent under strict anonymity, trouble started when the woman’s husband, simply identified as Mr Ochuku, an electrician, sus­pected his wife of infidelity.
The incident threw residents into confusion as those living in the com­pound where the incident happened had to vacate their houses for fear of be­ing arrested.
Another source said until the death of the Otuke, who was a former boyfriend to Rose before she got mar­ried, he had refused to cut all ties with her and was still having illicit affairs with her even after marriage.
It was  learnt further that Ochuko who has been trailing his wife on account of her sexual escapades had sever­ally warned the deceased to steer clear of his wife before stabbing him to death.
According to one ac­count, the visibly jealous husband beat up his wife and forced her to take him to her estranged lover a few meters from their home where he stabbed and killed the man in his room.
Another separate ac­count has it that the suspect had bundled his wife and his children into a waiting Toy­ota Corolla car and drove to the deceased’s house, killed him in the presence of his own wife, and left with his children back to his house and picked some few be­longings and disappeared.
It was also gathered that when the relatives of the de­ceased got wind of what had happened to their brother, they mobilized to the man’s house thinking he was still there. But when they found out that the man has es­caped, they destroyed all his property and left.
The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Celestina Kalu confirmed the incident and the ar­rest of the suspect. But she added that she was yet to be fully briefed on the in­cident.
