The Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions alleged that Udeme, 48 years old, stabbed to death her husband, Symphorosa, 50, at their residence on May 3, 2018.

The prosecuting counsel for the state, Babatunde Sunmonu, said the defendants had earlier threatened to stab her husband and eventually made good her threat.

He said after killing her husband, the defendant mutilated the corpse by cutting off the penis.

Sunmonu said Udeme acted contrary to sections 165(b) and 222 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

But the defendant pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
