A tragic incident occurred in Korinya-City, Konshisha Local Government Area, Benue State, on Tuesday morning, when a man identified as Bem Matthew, allegedly stabbed his wife to death over her alleged lack of submission to him.

He committed the crime at 7:03 a.m. at their residence on Tuesday, according to information.

Neighbors who heard the commotion rushed to the scene and found the woman lying in a pool of blood, with multiple stab wounds on her rib, back, and thigh.

The guy was subsequently apprehended by officers from the Konshisha Divisional Police Station while the deceased’s body was taken to the mortuary of Saint Joseph’s Clinic and Maternity in Korinya City.

The couple had four children together, who are now left orphaned by the gruesome act.

Attempts to obtain a response from the Benue State Police Command were futile because the spokesperson, SP Catherine Anekwe, could not be reached for comment.
