A physically challenged housewife, Priscilla (surname withheld) in Oleh, Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State, on Tuesday allegedly poisoned her husband for having another lover outside their matrimonial home.
Reports said the house wife was provoked by the over bearing randy act of her husband, a motor mechanic. In the evening of the fateful day, when she could no longer tolerate his randy attitude, she allegedly poisoned his food with insecticide which caused the husband to become ill and later gave up the ghost on his way to the hospital.
Although autopsy report is still being awaited, but police spokesman in the state, Mr. Charles Muka, confirmed that the victim died after allegedly eating a meal prepared by his wife, a mother of two children.
LEADERSHIP reliably gathered that the husband’s refusal to stop dating other women forced the wife to eliminate him after several warnings fell on deaf ears.
Sources said the cripple had reportedly confided in two of his family members about his unbridled libido and urged them to plead with the randy husband to stop running after other women.
The last straw that broke the camel’s back was when he returned home drunk with the lover. LEADERSHIP further gathered that apart from the man’s randy nature, there have been reported cases of unbearable situations that attracted family members to settle.
Worse still, unconfirmed sources said, unprintable words are often used by her husband to remind her of her disability, but police spokesman explained that the victim’s excessive drinking habit may have resulted in the ugly incident adding that the cripple has been arrested for further investigation.
