Wife murders husband over N10 Tom-Tom sweet

Oh dear!

Some news makes the skin shrivel in astonishment, news like a 22-year-old housewife, Aminat Aiyemobola, allegedly stabbing to death, her husband, Babatunde Aiyemobola, because he refused to give her the sum of N10 to buy sweet for their child.

According to New Telegraph,
the mother of two, had asked her 40-year-old husband give her the money
to buy the popular Tom-Tom sweet but his refusal led to a disagreement
which led to her picking up a kitchen knife and fatally stabbing her husband to death.
She is now being detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department, (SCID), Homicides section, Panti, Yaba, Lagos.
The
police reports that the incident which occurred at 4, Magbon Alade
Street, Ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos, and was reported to the police by the
elder brother of the deceased, happened after Aminat was said to have
asked her husband for N10 so that she could buy Tom-Tom sweet for their
daughter but his refusal turned out to be lethal.
The
deceased husband allegedly refused giving her the money and instead
chided her for always buying sweet for their kid, educating her that
sweets are not healthy for kids. This apparently angered Aminat and she
allegedly said some unprintable things to her husband and the couple
started quarrelling over the issue.
The argument
was said to have degenerated into name calling and before anyone knew
what was happening, the angry woman stormed into the kitchen and came
out with a knife with which stabbed her husband three times in the chest
and he died on the spot. While undergoing interrogation, Aminat told
homicide detectives that she did not know what came over her, which
prompted her to pick the knife.
“I loved my
husband. He was a very caring man to me and my children. Oga, I don’t
know what came over me. We loved each other. We have been living happily
as husband and wife. In fact, I don’t know whether I’m under a spell.
God please forgive me.”
The police said she would soon be arraigned in court.
