A man identified as Abdulateef, a.k.a Dagana, has allegedly been stabbed to death by his second wife after he caught her with another man on their matrimonial bed.
It was gathered that the incident happened in the early hours of Sunday in Jattu-Uzairue, Etsako West Local Government of Edo State.
The woman stabbed Abdulateef when he came home at about 3am and met her with another man in their bedroom.
According to a source, when Abdulateef got hold of his wife’s lover, his wife stabbed him twice in the stomach to make way for her lover to flee. The wife was said to have made the incident look like a robbery attack.
“The man was living with two wives in his house, but had to rent an apartment for his first wife in a different location to allow peace to reign while staying with the junior one in his house,” Daily Trust quoted the source as saying.
The source said the deceased visits the first wife and spends the night there but there has been a rumour that another man visits his second wife every night when he is not at home.
He came home that night from his first wife’s rented apartment only to meet a man with his junior wife in their bedroom.
Abdulateef, the source said, was said to have died as a result of the injury, adding that the quick arrival of the police saved the suspect from being killed by a mob.
The suspect has been arrested by the police.
