The woman who is alleged to have hacked her husband almost to death in Ogun State on Saturday has confessed to the crime, saying she was prepared to kill the husband.
According to a Daily Post report, the woman, Oluwakemi Etu, committed the act shortly after sex with her husband, Kehinde Etu, on the claim that he was planning to marry a second wife.
The state Police Command’s spokesperson, ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed to DAILY POST that investigations into the alleged attempted murder were ongoing and the suspect will be made to face the wrath of the law.
The PPRO noted that the suspect had a machete in her possession at the time she was arrested, adding that Oluwakemi explained that after purchasing the machete, she hid it in her apartment in the Erinlu area of Ijebu Ode, so as not to arouse suspicion.
“She said she succeeded in luring her husband to her apartment to spend the weekend with her, which the man honoured without suspecting any foul play.
“While he was there, she treated him warmly, but later attacked him with machete, inflicting several deep cuts on his chest and other parts of the body while he was asleep.
“The machete Oluwakemi used to inflict wounds on her husband has been recovered.
“Oluwakemi, who was arrested by men of the Obalende Police Division, said she was prepared to kill him as she bought the cutlass she used in inflicting cuts on her husband two weeks before she attacked him, claiming that she attacked her husband because he wanted to marry a second wife.
“The suspect would soon be charged to court with either wounding or attempted murder,” the acting spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, the victim is currently receiving treatment at Ijebu-Ode General Hospital.
