A woman identified as Glady Napoleon on Wednesday admitted to killing her husband, Eze Napoleon after 35 years of marriage.
The 51-year-old disclosed that the incident happened at their residence in Igwuruta community, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Glady while speaking on the incident disclosed that she killed her husband in self defense after he tried to kill her with a matchet during an argument.
According to the woman, she overpowered the deceased and used the weapon on him.
The suspect who is from Chokocho community in Etche Local Government Area of the State, said their marriage produced six children.
She added that her husband had always maltreated her and “I complained to his brothers and even my children”.
Glady revealed this while being paraded at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, in Port-Harcourt, on Wednesday.
She said, “He went and brought the knife (matchet) and started dragging me and I was screaming.
“We started dragging the knife and I cut him on his head two times.
“After he fell down, I became very scared and I called my daughter and my brother in-law to come immediately and we rushed him to the hospital but no doctor was around to attend to him. We went back home where he later died.”
The suspect noted that the deceased during their argument threatened to kill her and her two children and use them for money rituals.
The spokesman of the state police command, Nnamdi Omoni while parading the suspect said she “will likely be charged to court after full investigations”.
Omoni, however, advised members of the public to “seek alternative means of resolving family conflicts instead of violence”.
