A housewife has revealed her husband has refused to pay back a loan of five million Naira she got for him.
She revealed that one of the reasons for constant misunderstandings between her and her estranged husband bordered on financial issues.
Mrs. Stella Nwobike stated that she had secured a loan of N5m for her husband, Victor Nwobike, but that he had refused to make a refund so far.
The woman spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria, even as her 34-year-old sister, Chioma Ihu, has been arrested for allegedly stabbing Stella Nwobike’s husband several times.
Ihu said she committed the act to save the life of her sister.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ihu was arrested on Saturday for attempted murder of Victor Nwobike at her sister’s Lekki Phase 4 Garden, Lagos residence.
The suspect, a make-up artist, told NAN at State Criminal Intelligence Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, that she had lived with her sister for six weeks before the incident.
“I came from Port-Harcourt to stay with my sister in Lagos because she was having problems with her husband.
“Usually, I shared same room with my sister; but on this particular day, I slept off in the sitting room because I got home late the previous night.
“Early in the morning, at about some minutes past 5 a.m., I started hearing noise from my sister’s room. I thought it was the usual husband and wife argument.
“But when their daughter started saying ‘Daddy, don’t kill my mummy,’ I rushed inside and I saw him using a device with electric current on my sister.
“I tried to stop him, but he used the device on me, pushed me away, saying that he will kill us both and he started kicking my sister while she was on the floor.
“When I noticed that he concentrated on my sister, I quickly picked a bottle of wine and hit him with it. I don’t know how I stabbed him, I didn’t intend to cause him so much harm,”
Ihu’s sister, Stella Nwobike, who was assisting operatives with investigation at Panti, also accused her husband of domestic violence.
The 44-year-old mother of five told NAN that she had been married for 13 years.
