Wife kills husband over sexual demands

01 August 2013, 10:05

Jos - The Plateau Police Command on Wednesday in Jos said it had arrested a 17-year-old minor who allegedly killed her husband over his sexual demands.

The minor allegedly killed Lawal Bala, 26, in his sleep on their matrimonial bed on July 8.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Chris Olakpe, said the police had also arrested some suspected criminals.

The minor, who spoke from the police custody, told newsmen that he was sleeping with me six times in a day.

"I kept complaining to him that I could not stand his sexual urge but he refused to listen to my plea; no family member was ready to help me, so I did what I did."

She said that she regretted killing him, but that she thought that was the only option left for her to free herself from the pains she was passing through.

According to her, I have realised my mistake and have repented of my sin; all I want is for the authorities to allow me to go home.

The suspect said she was already two months pregnant for her late husband and would want to go home to take care of herself till delivery.

Earlier, Olakpe had said that when the matter was reported, and the minor was arrested, she denied committing the offence.

"But in the cause of investigations, she later confessed to committing the crime and gave reasons," he said.

Olakpe, who said that the offence was a culpable homicide, added that she would soon be prosecuted at the Juvenile Court.
