A married woman has been arrested after she connived with her boyfriend to slaughter her husband.

Apart from Grace, another man said to be her accomplice in the murder, Benjamin Otu, who happens to be her boyfriend, was also arrested and he has confessed to being part of the plot to murder the victim.

It was gathered that Lucky and his wife, both from Akwa Ibom State, had some disagreement during the day and thinking everything had been settled, he went to bed, she invited Otu inside and he held Lucky while Grace used a kitchen knife to slit his throat while he slept.

As her husband bled profusely and helplessly, Grace stood by and watched, ensuring that he was dead before she alerted their neigbours.

According to a police source, the incident was reported at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba, and Grace was arrested. It was during interrogation that she confessed to the act and implicated Otu as her accomplice, leading to his arrest as well.

Otu had allegedly confessed to the act and told the police that it was Grace that used a knife to cut the deceased’s throat while he bled and died. On the role Otu played, the police source said he assisted Grace by holding Lucky on the bed before Grace had access to slit his throat.
