6 Women in Delta & Anambra Killed by Their Husbands Last Week Over Alleged Infidelity




Six women were killed by their husbands last week in unrelated incidents in Delta and Anambra State.

Purported infidelity was the cause of the homicides, Leadership reports.

In one of the cases in Anambra, it was rumoured that a woman named Mary* was allegedly having an affair with a native doctor. Her husband found out and shot her dead. He was about to also turn the gun on himself, however; he was reportedly saved by neighbours.

In another case in Delta, a 62-year-old farmer, John* stabbed his wife to death after she reportedly confessed that she had been cheating on him for years.

Eyewitness accounts state that upon killing his wife, John attempted to commit suicide by hanging himself, but was rescued by neighbors.

According to reports, in another instance, the body of a woman was found in the gutter somewhere in Akabo–Obofia in Newichi, Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State. Eyewitnesses say she was killed by her husband after they had argued over her alleged infidelity.

Information about the other three cases was not published.

    The violence against women should stop.

    When a man cheats,he gets a free pass but when a woman cheats, she is sent to her grave,why?

      Who are the women and the men involved? You guys should stop lying against your country in order to make a statement because it’s going to hunt you later. All these unverified statistics just to show support for feminism; Chaiii there is God O!

    They should start killing husbands that kill their wives…Men cheat on their wives constantly and their wives have not killed them yet some cowards will be killing their wives and “neighbors will be rescuing them”, meanwhile if a wife kills her husband for even abusing her the same neighbors will lynch her…Nigerian women need to get serious about pushing laws that will protect them into place..Today it’s some woman you don’t know that is suffering cause of an unjust system, tomorrow it just might be YOU OR YOUR DAUGHTER!

    So s divorce is too much? Why did they have to kill their wives? I would rather be a divorcee than a murderer. Just my opinion.

    When they cheat- You find out, they beat you or mentally abuse you, tag you a nag, come back and beg…..

    This is rubbish. Marry or no marry, love or no love, gives you NO right to mistreat, let alone take the life of another human being. I hope they get the maximum punishment. Infidelity ko, infidelity ni. Nonsense.
