Oyo State Police Command on Wednesday paraded a 27-year-old housewife at the its headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan, for stabbing her husband to death over sex demand.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Adewale Osifeso, said the woman stabbed her husband with a knife in the chest leading to his death.

“The deceased attempted to have sexual intercourse with his wife who resisted the move.
“The resistance led to a struggle between the deceased and the suspect during which he collected and smashed the wife’s phone on the ground.
“In retaliation, the suspect went for a knife and stabbed the deceased in the chest, resulting in his death,” he said.
According to Osifeso, the deceased and suspect returned to their home on the day of the incident after three months separation as a result of misunderstanding.
He said the suspect confessed to the crime and would be charged to court on completion of investigation.

In the same vein, the police paraded nine suspected cultists who were caught with guns, cutlasses and other dangerous weapons with the intention to unleash mayhem on members of Ilupeju community on new Oyo- Ogbomoso Expressway.
