Udeme Otike-Odibi, who is alleged to killing her lawyer husband Symphorosa Otike-Odibi in their Diamond estate home on the 5th of may, requested that she be remanded in Ikoyi Prison, instead of Kirikiri Prison where the court had ordered her to be kept till the next hearing.
Another request made by Udeme is for the burial of her deceased husband to be postponed, which was also ruled out by the court as an interruption of the right of the dead.
The two request made through her lawyer was declined by the chief magistrate, adding that if necessary the body could still be exhumed for further investigation.
Udeme will remain in Kirikiri Prison pending the conclusion of the investigation, Directorate of Public Prosecution, DPP’s advice and formal arraignment before a High Court if need be.
Udeme ended her 3-year-old marriage gruesomely on May 5, when she allegedly used a knife she had just bought to rip her husband’s stomach open, sliced off his penis and placed it in his right hand inside their home at Diamond Estate, Ogombo, at Sango-Tedo area of Ajah, in Lagos.
