The wife of an ex-supervisory councillor in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers state has been arrested by the State Police Command over the death of her husband, Kinikanwo Amadi, aka Skin.
The ex-councillor was said to be stabbed to death with a bottle last Thursday succeeding a disagreement with his wife simply known as Ihuoma at their residence.
On Sunday, a spokesman for the police in the state, Nnamdi Omoni, said the suspect was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for thorough investigation.
Omoni said, “We have arrested the suspect and she is in our custody. Investigations are seriously ongoing for us to ascertain what actually happened.”
An unidentified daughter-in-law in the Amadi family revealed that the deceased was stabbed with a bottle of beer.
She added that the wife before the incident called her husband on the phone for help.
She said, “Around past 10pm, Ihuoma called my husband and said that Skin was disturbing her and that my husband should come. It was late, so my husband was a bit reluctant to leave the house.
“Around 11pm, a man rushed to our house to inform my husband that his brother was seriously bleeding and he needed help. Before we got there, he was already taken to the hospital.”
