According to the story in PUNCH, Folashade Sodiya, 27, killed her husband, Jude Igbinedor, 39, around 2am after heated argument over money. What started as a mild argument over money turned tragic between a couple in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, which happened on Wednesday, last week, on TK Balogun Street, Igbo Olomu, Ishawo.
The couple reportedly got married without approval of their parents and started living together two years ago.
According to a neighbour who witnessed the fight,
“On Tuesday, the wife had asked someone to lend her N1,000 pending when her husband would come back from his mother’s place where he had gone to.
“The man arrived and even bought vegetables and other food stuffs for his family. In the evening, he came out and also washed the pots they used to cook that day.
“It was around 2am that things went sore. I learnt she said he was the first to use a hanger to hit her before she also stabbed him in the chest.”
According to another neighbour, it was said that the suspect wanted to take part of the money the husband brought from her mother to offset the money she borrowed, but he declined.
*Well, it’s so sad! Anger on its own is a devil, especially when brought upon by poverty! This incidence makes one wonder if there is something the parents of the couple saw that made them disapprove the union! May, his soul rest in peace sha!
