A 33-year-old Joshua Terkaa-Uhir, allegedly stabbed his wife, Lucy, to death with an axe after accusing the mother of two of extramarital affairs.
In a similar incident, a woman, Folashade Idoko, stabbed her husband, Lawrence, to death with a knife after the latter allegedly received a telephone call from a suspected female lover at their home in Ayetoro, Oto-Awori.
While Joshua has been declared wanted by the Benue State Police Command, Folashade has been arrested and detained by the Lagos State Police Command.
According to a report on PUNCH, Joshua and Lucy had been married for about six years and their marriage was blessed with two children.
However, the union was reported to be fraught with disagreements over some petty issues which always resulted in fisticuffs.
Matters took a turn for the worse last week when Joshua suddenly collapsed after claiming he saw two mysterious cats in their home.
The wife was alleged to have separated from him after the suspect started hallucinating and claiming some people were demanding blood from him.
Their two children were also said to have been relocated to a relative’s house over safety concerns.
The mother of two, however, on Sunday went back to the house to take some clothes when the husband shut the door against her and beat her up after a heated argument.
He was alleged to have used an axe to stab her in the neck and immediately fled through the window.
The victim was rushed to the Gboko General Hospital where she was confirmed dead by a doctor.
