Tragedy struck early Tuesday as a man identified as Bem Matthew stabbed his wife to death because she was no longer “submissive to him”.
The incident happened in Korinya-City, Konshisha Local Government Area of Benue State around 7:03 am.
The deceased’s body was taken to the mortuary of Saint Joseph’s Clinic and Maternity, Korinya City by neighbours, who also apprehended the suspect at the scene of the incident.
Eventually, the suspect was handed over to the men of the Konshisha Divisional Police Station where he confessed to the crime.
An eyewitness, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the deceased was stabbed on the rib, back and thigh.
Their union was blessed with four children.
Efforts to get the reaction of the Benue State Police Command were not successful as the spokesperson, SP Catherine Anekwe, could not be reached for comments.
