The Lagos State Police Command is yet to unravel what lead one Sunday Iluegben, attached to Ikeja Division to have allegedly hacked his estranged wife on the head and neck at midnight last Friday in Mushin area of Lagos.
The deceased, identified as Caroline Iluegben we gathered was hacked to death over an unknown cause.
She was said to have usually went to visit her four children and sometimes passed the night at the man’s house.
According to eyewitness, Caroline had reportedly visited her children penultimate Thursday and decided to sleep over. The startling tragedy occurred after one of her children woke up the next day and found her mother in a pool of blood on a mattress she slept with her husband in the sitting room.
The child’s scream alerted her siblings and neighbours, who contacted policemen at Olosan Police Station.
Police sources quoted the children as saying that their father woke up about 5.30 a.m. and left for work at 7 a.m.
“Their daughter said a scarf stained with blood was used to cover her mother’s mouth. She was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, Idi-Araba,where she later died at 12 noon on Friday,” a police source claimed.
