Tragedy struck yesterday at Ejigbo, a suburb of Lagos State, when a pregnant woman stabbed her husband dead for allegedly refusing to support the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

The woman is being interrogated by the police. It was gathered that the couple supported different presidential candidates.

While the husband was said to have decided to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), his wife, simply identified as Onyiyechi, voted for Buhari.

The argument degenerated into a fight and Onyiyechi, who so much believed in the APC candidate, could no longer hold back her anger, she allegedly stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife in the chest.

A neighbour who spoke on the condition of anonymity said: “We were outside preparing to go and cast our votes when the couple started shouting at each other. While the wife was shouting that Buhari was the man to beat, her husband was shouting that Goodluck Jonathan was the man. We thought it was an ordinary argument until we stopped hearing their voices. We thought they had stopped the argument until the wife ran outside, seeking for assistance. She was saying that her husband was dead.

“We did not understand how someone we just heard his voice would just die until we rushed inside his room and he was in the pool of his blood. It was at that time that the wife said she allegedly killed him with a kitchen knife.”

Another tenant, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “We were all outside waiting to vote when Onyiyechi rushed out, shouting for help. Out of curiosity, we all ran inside, only to discover blood all over the ground, on entering their apartment, on closer observation, we noticed that the blood was from her husband’s chest region. We met him on the ground. Before we could rush him to the hospital, he gave up the ghost.

“Perhaps, he would have survived the attack had Onyiyechi called for help earlier. From all indications, it was clear that she attempted to manage the situation immediately the incident occurred. It was when she discovered that the situation had overwhelmed her that she raised the alarm. The irony of this matter is that she is not a trouble-maker. She has never beaten a little child, let alone fight with any neighbour. Again on that day, we saw both of them together. They were seen sitting outside, one hour before the incident occurred.”

Policemen from Ejigbo were said to have removed the body to the Isolo General Hospital morgue.
