A woman was arrested on a charge of attempted murder after allegedly stabbing her husband because he had an affair with another woman, according to police in Nigeria.
Ogun police said that they have arrested Oluwakemi Etu, after being accused of using a machete to cut her husband who told her about an affair with another woman while they were having sex.
In court, Etu pleaded not guilty to one count of attempted murder. According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded in the couple’s home on Saturday morning.
On Friday night, Etu and her husband had an argument after he told her about having an affair with another woman while the two were having sex.
The jealous woman then allowed her husband to go to sleep, and after a few hours, she grabbed a machete and cut his chest.
The husband, Kehinde Etu, fell unconscious and was taken to the State General Hospital, where he is said to be in critical condition.
A spokesperson for the hospital said that the husband had since regained consciousness.
