A High Court in Lagos Nigeria has remanded a 48-year-old female lawyer identified as Udeme Otike-Odibi, at Kirikiri prison for reportedly stabbing her 52-year-old husband, Symphorosa Otike-Odibi to death.
The female Lawyer stabbed her husband and mutilated his corpse by cutting his manhood off.
According to reports, the lawyer after a heated argument with her husband lost her cool and quickly ran to the kitchen to take a knife, before the husband could say jack he was on the floor with blood oozing from his belly region.
The culprit ( Udeme Otike-Odibi ), was accused by the Lagos State Government on a two-count charge of murder and misconduct with regard to a corpse. She, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The offences violate Sections 165 (b) and 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. Section 165 (b) provides five-year imprisonment while Section 223 also stipulates death.
The presiding judge, Adedayo Akintoye, despite that, remanded the accused in prison and adjourned the case until further hearing.
