Woman accused of stabbing her husband to death some weeks back, Mrs. Damilola Ayeni, 23, has finally opened up on what transpired, that night, at their Bamgboye Street, Lagos Island residence.
The suspect had been accused of using a kitchen knife to stab Olumide Ayeni, a staff of Lagos Island Hospital who bled profusely and died at the Lagos Island General Hospital on Friday the 3rd of August 2018.
Damilola revealed that she did not set out to kill him but lost control due to anger and she eventually murdered him. The mother of two added that she had not come to terms with what really happened on that day and wished it never happened.
She recalled that their two years old marriage was characterized with crises on suspicions of infidelity and mistrust, which resulted to constant quarrelling and fighting that eventually led to her husband’s death.
“There had never been a moment of peace in my marriage” she sobbingly said.
She has been charged before the Ebute Metta Magistrates court and arraigned for murder. The prosecutor, Inspector Mana Dauda, informed the court that it was a case of domestic violence that led to the death of the victim.
