Diamond Estate in Sangotedo, Ajah, Lagos State, was in turmoil on Thursday after a lawyer, Udeme Odibi, allegedly stabbed her husband, Otike Odibi, to death.
Udeme was alleged to have cut off the private parts of the deceased, who was also a lawyer, and stabbed herself.
47-year-old Udeme had threatened to stab her husband on Wednesday over a disagreement that ensued between them.
Otike who is 50-years-old was said to have informed a neighbours and his relatives about the threat on the telephone before he went to bed.
The woman allegedly made good her threat in the early hours of Thursday, ripping out the entrails of the victim with a knife.
Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Chike Oti, who confirmed the incident in a statement, said the couple had endured three years of marriage fraught with domestic violence.
He said the couple did not have any child together, although Otike had a daughter in his previous marriage.
Oti, a Superintendent of Police, stated that a distress call was put across to the Divisional Police Officer, Ogombo division, around 7.30am as regards the murder.
He said, “Based on the information, the DPO mobilised a team of detectives to the scene where they found the man lying on the bed and soak in blood with his stomach ripped open, exposing his intestines. As if that was not enough, the killer severed his genitals and placed them on his right hand.
