The police in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, on Wednesday, paraded a 27-year-old housewife who they say stabbed her husband to death over sex demand.

SP Adewale Osifeso, a spokesman for the state police, alleged that the housewife was responsible for her husband’s murder by stabbing him in the chest.

According to Osifeso, the deceased tried to have sexual intercourse with his wife on November 16 at their home in Oko-Oba, Oyo town, but she objected, and he stabbed her.

He claimed that the suspect’s husband picked up the wife’s phone during their battle and shattered it on the ground because of her resistance.

In the act of vengeance, the suspect grabbed a knife and fatally stabbed the victim in the chest.

Osifeso said the deceased and the suspect reconciled and went home on the day of the incident. They had been apart for three months due to a misunderstanding.

He said the suspect had admitted guilt and would be formally charged once the inquiry was over.

He was one of the twenty-five people brought out for parade after being accused of murder, armed robbery, burglary, theft, cultism, kidnapping, or conspiracy.

Police also showed off nine alleged cultists, all armed with firearms, cutlasses, and other lethal weapons and planned to cause havoc among the residents of the Ilupeju community along the New Oyo-Ogbomoso Expressway.

Osifeso claimed that the cultists were apprehended on November 5 due to reliable anti-crime surveillance and information.

According to him, the suspects’ stash included two locally made firearms, two live cartridges, one facemask, two Bajaj motorcycles, and a Mazda bus.

As reported by NAN, there were reportedly two locally produced guns recovered by the command and no less than five armed robbery suspects who were all put on display.

Five armed robbery criminals who had been terrorising the residents of Oyo town were also on display.

According to Osifeso, the state’s police commissioner, Adebowale Williams, has pleaded with residents to refrain from destroying campaign billboards and posters and inciting violence ahead of the 2023 general elections.
