Man arrested in Lagos for attempting to kill his wife of 13-yrs marriage
A 45-year-old man identified simply as Christopher has been arrested by men of Lagos state police command for attempting to kill his wife.
Christopher who lives in No. 23 Jossy Castro Street Lagos was arrested by officers attached to Bariga Police Station for attempting the murder with a knife.
This was contained in a statement released by the Police Public Relations in the state, Bala Elkana on February 9.
Bala stated that the woman was rescued by the Police following a distress call received. The knife was recovered and registered as exhibit.
“The couple were married for 13 years and blessed with two children, ages 11 and 9. Both are from Akwa Ibom State. The suspect lost his banking job 5years ago and the woman is not working.
The couple were having series of crisis underpinned on matrimonial rascality and lack of maintenance. The event that reportedly led to the suspect attempt to stab the victim with a knife, started with a mere argument, the PPRO stated.
Bala says investigation is ongoing and the suspect will be charged to court soon.
