Man slits wife’s throat while sleeping

A man, Jafaru Esougie, has been arrested after he allegedly slit his wife’s throat, killing her, as she was sleeping on Friday in Lagos State.

49-year-old Jafaru reportedly slashed Rosaline’s throat, his wife of 26 years, who bore him five children at their rented apartment at Araromi Street around Oshodi while the deceased was fast asleep in the middle of the night.

It was said that the suspect started exhibiting insanity after he allegedly committed the murder, defecating around and murmuring to himself.

Reports have it that the deceased was the breadwinner of the family.

“Pastor contributed to my sister’s killing by husband”

Giving an account of what happened to newsmen, the deceased’s sister who identified herself as Vero said: “We were sleeping when my sister’s husband came out to wake the first son to go and urinate. This was about 4am. When the boy went in to wake the mother, he saw that she was not responding.

“He shook her vigorously and got no response and quickly ran to call me. When I got there, I also shook her with the aim of waking her but got no response. Touching her legs, I observed that it was very cold. I shuddered and quickly removed that cloth on her face.

‘It was then that I saw that the husband had used a knife to slash her neck. He cut the vein that holds the neck and the head. She was in a pool of her own blood. Goose pimples overwhelmed me and the children. They were traumatized as they saw the lifeless body of the mother drenched with blood.

“When we were doing all these, the husband sat on the floor vomiting black things and defecating right there. Thereafter, I raised the alarm and neighbours came to apprehend him. The police was later invited to arrest him.

“They used to quarrel a lot. The husband was always beating her. We severally told her to leave the house for him but she declined, preferring to endure for the sake of her children.”
