The Edo state police command has arrested one Mrs. Eki Ekhator for the alleged murder of her husband after she violently grabbed his scrotum and squeezed it till he died.
The incident was a shock to residents of the Ukhiri community in the Ikpoba-Okha local government of the state who quickly rushed the man to a nearby hospital where he was confirmed dead.
It was gathered that Eki was fond of accusing her husband of extra-marital affairs whenever he came home late and this led to a series of misunderstanding among the two.
“On this occasion, the deceased slapped his wife and the woman went for his trousers and held on to his scrotum in a violent manner.
She held on to it even as the man was screaming for help before he later collapsed and was rushed to a hospital, where he was confirmed dead.” an eyewitness explained.
According to a police source, the woman has confessed the crime and attributed it to the work of the devil.
Even though the Edo state police spokesman could not be reached for comments, the state police command has said that it was still investigating the case.
