A staff of Remo North Local government, Sobola Olatunji, has been arrested for stabbing his wife over alleged infidelity. The 46-year-old man was arrested by the operatives of Ogun state police command after a complaint was made by the father of the deceased, Alhaji Yinusa.
He (the father) said that his son-in-law and daughter had an argument which quickly turned violent as Sobola took a knife and stabbed her in the back. Immediately the complaint was made, detectives rushed to the scene, arrested the man and took the victim to the hospital where she died while receiving treatment.
During the interrogation process, it was revealed that the couple had been married for 20 years and he stabbed her because he suspected that she was having extra marital affairs.
