Woman hires assassins to kill husband

A man nabbed while attempting to rob one Mr. Orji in his house at Ajah area of Lagos State, has accused the wife of his victim, Mrs. Chika Orji of recruiting him and his friend to kill her husband.

Bright Ikechukwu who is a plumber and based in Delta State said Mrs. Orji promised him and two of his friends N500,000 to kill her estranged husband.

But after two attempts on the life of their target failed, he decided to rob him in his house so that he could raise money to travel back to his base.

“I decided to go into Mr. Orji’s apartment to steal instead, in order to get some money to go back to Delta state. But as I was trying to jump through the fence, somebody raised alarm and I was arrested by vigilantes. I was tied with a wire and beaten without mercy. I had to open up when they almost killed me,” the suspect narrated.

However, Mrs. Orji denied Ikechukwu’s narrative. The 41-year old mother of three said she only hired them to beat up her estranged husband out of frustration.

Her word: “We got married 14 years ago and have three daughters and a son. All of a sudden, my husband suddenly became a wife beater. He would beat me and leave me with swollen face. He threatened to kill me. It continued until three years ago, when he finally chased me out of the house and denied me access to my children.

“I made several efforts to get my children back, part of which was to report him to human rights offices for settlement but he did not honour any of the invitations. Both families have made attempts to settle us but he would not listen.

“He was served with a court warrant over the issue but he also refused to show up. Along the line, he sold the house we both built, for N85 million but never gave me any dime. He also stopped my children from visiting me and any attempt to see them always resulted in beating.
“Out of frustration, I told Ekene, our carpenter, to beat him up, so as to teach him a lesson. I did not hire anyone to kill him. I am a frustrated woman and I am sorry for everything.”
