Why Teacher Stabbed Husband to Death in Ikorodu

Tragedy struck at a home in Ikorodu, Lagos state as a wife and mother of two stabbed her husband to death. According to sources, the sad incident occurred early on Wednesday, May 30, 2018.

The woman, who is a teacher, claimed the attack was not intentional. She said her husband had a habit of beating her and he was at it again that morning when she picked a knife to scare him off, then mistakenly stabbed him with it.

According to her, neighbors are aware that she suffers domestic violence in the hands of her husband.

She claims her family had told her to divorce the man after she ran back home following one particularly violent incident, but she chose to stay with him because they have two kids and he is the husband of her youth.

During interrogation, the sobbing woman said:

“I didn’t kill him intentionally. He was always battering me. Today, he pinned me down and started beating me again. I picked the knife to scare him, but I mistakenly stabbed him. I couldn’t have killed my husband intentionally.

In the past, I used to run out of the house when being beaten, but today, he locked everywhere to prevent my escape.

My family had told me to divorce him but I didn’t want to, because he is the husband of my youth and we already have two children together. You can ask around, everyone knows he beats me always.”

  • This is self defense clearly. This is why it is good to leave an abusive spouse before the worse happens.
