A jealous housewife, Oluwakemi Etu, yesterday morning hacked her husband, Mr. Kehinde Etu, down with machete, leaving him in a coma and pool of blood. The Nation gathered that the woman who attacked the man when he fell asleep shortly after making love to her, also had an argument with him in connection with alleged moves to marry a second wife.
It was gathered that Oluwakemi had invited the husband over to her residence at the Erinlu area of Ijebu – Ode, Ogun State, to spend the weekend with her without suspecting any foul play.
It was learnt further that while he was there, he was treated warmly by the woman, luring him into false sense of security only to attack him savagely with machete later, inflicting several deep cuts on his chest, arms, shoulder and lower part of the head in his sleep.
The Acting Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Police Command, Mr. Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident, said Oluwakemi has been arrested by policemen from the Obalende Divisional Police Headquarters, Ijebu – Ode.
He added that the woman had quarrelled with her husband earlier by night before carrying out the surprise attack on him with cutlass. The injured husband is currently receiving treatment at the State General Hospital, Ijebu – Ode.
A source at the hospital told The Nation that the man said he never knew what hit him, having passed out and that it was later he discovered himself on the hospital with deep cuts on his chest and other parts of the body.
He however regained consciousness at the hospital.
