Mary Adeniyi, a 19 year old nursing mother who lives in Shagamu area of Ikorodu was arrested for stabbing her husband to death out of anger. The young woman confessed that she got angry and committed the crime because her husband accused her of sleeping with other men.
Commenting on the incident, Chike Oti, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), stated that the late husband was fond of accusing his wife of infidelity.
