Police Arrest Woman Who Poisoned, Tortured Husband


Woman who allegedly poisoned and tortured her husband to death in Mboshimini Community, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State has been arrested by the police.

Charity was reportedly arrested with one of her brothers, alleged to be an accomplice in the murder of Chief Kingsley Wobo.

State Criminal Investigation Department, CID sources say the 36-year-old suspect did not act alone, as there were other suspects who assisted her in killing her husband.

Family sources also confirmed that the relation of the suspect was arrested when he visited his sister at the police station.

“Her brother had gone to see the sister (Mrs. Wobo) in police custody when the daughter of the deceased who had noticed his face the night her father was killed ordered the police to arrest him. After his arrest, the police later recovered the late Wobo’s three telephone sets from him,” the family sources added.

The source stated also that there were reasons to believe that Chief Wobo’s death was premeditated as he was poisoned before being tortured and stabbed severally.

Mr Wobo, who is an elder brother of the deceased, said however, that the family was awaiting an autopsy on the deceased as well as police investigation reports and would not jump into any conclusion.

According to reports, Late Chief Kingsley Wobo was stabbed to death after being poisoned about three weeks ago at his Mboshimini residence. His wife Charity became the prime suspect when it became apparent she had differences with Wobo over his plans to take a second wife.
