According to reports from Nigerian publications, on Wednesday night the Udeme Odibi (47) allegedly stabbed her husband, Otike Odibi (50), to death – and then cut his manhood off and put it in his dead right hand.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti said the couple were not as happy as many thought and had a bitter three-year-long marriage.
They married after Otike divorced his first wife, with whom he has a daughter.
Udeme and Otike had no children together.
Oti said cops were alerted to the tragedy about 7.30am on Thursday.
“Based on the information, the DPO mobilised a team of detectives to the scene where they found the man lying on the bed in a pool of blood with his stomach ripped open, exposing his intestines. As if that was not enough, the killer severed his genitals and placed them on his right hand.
“However, before the arrival of the police, Udeme, who had unsuccessfully attempted to commit suicide after allegedly killing her husband, was rushed to a hospital for treatment by neighbours,” said Oti.
A neighbour reported that Otike had called him a few hours before he was murdered, complaining that Udeme was threatening to kill him with a knife.
“The deceased also called his mother and his younger sister complaining of the threat to his life that night,” Oti added.
Udeme is currently recovering in hospital.
