A 25-year-old junior housewife, Rebecca Nicodemus, has reportedly stabbed her hubby’s senior wife, Precious Nicodemus, to death at Ode-Irele, Ondo State, following a disagreement on sleeping arrangement with their husband.

 

Rebecca had stabbed her on the left back side resulting in her death, Persecondnews gathered.

 

The two women reportedly lived in a room and a parlor apartment with their husband.

 

Police prosecutor, Obadasa Ajiboye, told a Chief Magistrate Court in Akure that the defendant committed the offence at 5.00 a.m at Idogun Camp near Ode-Irele.

 

The fight broke out when the accused complained that the husband has been depriving her of sex and giving all his attention to the senior wife.

 

Rebecca had told the court: “I am married to Paul Nicodemus. I came to Ondo State in January 2022 and we were leaving in the same house. I’m a farmer and we have been relating together in harmony alongside the deceased.

 

“On that fateful day, myself and my husband were in the living room making love, but he suddenly excused himself on a pretext that we were not free to continue with our lovemaking in the living room.

 

”l sat in the living room, waiting for him, but was angered when l discovered that my husband that l was waiting for was making love to Precious inside the bedroom.

 

“I also heard them making derogatory remarks about me. So, I waited in the sitting room for Precious to come out from the room and when she came out, I challenged her over her unkind words.

 

“Rather than for her to be apologetic, she suddenly grabbed my clothes which made me angrier. So, I took a knife on the table in our sitting room and stabbed her at the back with the knife.

 

”Immediately she fell down from the impact of the wound, sympathizers and the family members rushed her to the hospital but on getting to the hospital, the doctor on duty confirmed her dead.

 

“It was not my intention to kill her, I overreacted out of anger.”

 

The plea of the defendant was not taken but the police prosecutor made an oral application to remand the defendant in prison custody pending the outcome of advice from the office of the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

 

In his ruling, Magistrate Damilola Sekoni remanded the accused in police custody till February 22, 2022, pending a ruling on the application.
