A 48-year-old man, has

allegedly killed his wife for

not being able to give birth

to a male child.

The deceased, 46, simply

identified as Mama Feyi, was

heavily pregnant when she

was allegedly stabbed to

death by the husband

during an early morning


It was gathered that the

alleged murderer who hails

from Abusoro area in Akure,

Ondo State, has since been

arrested and is presently

being detained at the Ala

divisional police station.

Eye witness accounts say the

suspect has been having a

running battle with his

deceased wife for over two

years shortly after the

woman gave birth to their

fourth daughter.

Sources say trouble began a

month ago before the brutal

murder when the husband

complained aloud that his

deceased wife is incapable of

bearing him a male child

and the incident led to a

fierce altercation between

the couple.

Shocked neighbours

expressed disbelief at the

death of mama Feyi when

one of their next door

neighbour, Mr. Isijola, said

he was awakened by loud

arguments coming from

their room very early in the

morning. “I ignored them as

it is a norm for them to

always argue and have

altercations. I decided to

ignore them at first but

when the noise was getting

unbearable, I stepped into

their room only to find the

lifeless body of the woman

on the floor, lying in the

pool of her blood.

"I saw the man holding a

knife and he threatened to

stab me if I don’t leave. It

was when I discovered that

he may abscond that I

alerted the police who

immediately came to arrest


Narrating the incident,

daughter of the deceased,

Feyisara, said, “It all started

on Sunday after my mummy

had cooked rice. She asked

me to go and collect money

from my father to prepare

stew and on getting to him,

he started shouting. But he

later gave me N500 which

my mum refused to collect.

"They both argued and had

a fight. I had to make a

distress call to neighbours to

settle the dispute”.
