A man who allegedly murdered his wife during a scuffle over his alleged affair with his wife’s employee has been arrested in Lagos by operatives of the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Yaba.
The deceased, Endurance Ajisegiri, who left her matrimonial home in Shasha area of Lagos for her parent’s in Ibeju-Lekki area, was the Managing Director of Speech Transition Company Limited.
Several entreaties made to settle the scores between the couple reportedly failed, until two weeks ago when a family friend to the Ajisegiris reportedly came to pick Endurance to her husband’s house.
Circumstances under which Endurance eventually died was not clear as at yesterday, but Vanguard gathered that shortly after the mediator prevailed on Isaac to reconcile with his wife, she had to be rushed to a hospital in a pool of her blood, where she was later confirmed dead.
Apparently suspecting there could be more to the mere injury in Endurance’s neck, doctor of the unnamed hospital was said to have contacted policemen at Shasha division, who arrested Isaac.
Although operatives at SCID told Vanguard that Isaac maintained he did not know what led to the death of his wife but they were of the view that she could have been stabbed in the neck with a sharp object.
Sources told Vanguard that a deep cut was noticed close to Endurance’s jagular.
Sources further disclosed that two other persons, Isaac’s mother and his sister had also been arrested over the issue.
Father of the deceased, Mr Johnson Agbobonye, told Vanguard that the only consolation would be for the Police to ensure that his daughter’s death was avenged by rendering justice to his family.
According to him; “The feud started after my daughter discovered that his husband was going out with her staff and sacked the lady in question. But her husband would not let her be since the sack of the lady. She later left her home when Isaac turned her into a punching bag. We were in support of her decision so as to prevent the unknown.
I was not not home the day a family friend came to pick her to her husband’s place, for I would have kicked against the action. Now he has made do his threat by killing the bread winner of the family”, said 68 year-old Agbobonye in an emotional laden voice.
Operatives however said the suspect would be charged to court at the end of investigation. [Vanguard]
