Queen arrested for k*lling her King during an argument in Rivers State .

The Rivers State Police Command arrested a 51-year-old woman, Gladys Amadi for killing her husband, Eze Napoleon Amadi, at their residence in Igwuruta community, Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

It was gathered that the deceased was the traditional ruler of Chokocho Etche community in Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State. The suspect while being paraded at the premises of the State Criminal Investigation Department on Wednesday, October 27, Mrs Amadi admitted to k*lling her husband with a machete during an argument on October 8, 2021.

The mother-of-two claimed that she k*lled her husband in self defense after the deceased allegedly attempted to k*ll her with a machete during an argument but she overpowered him and used the weapon on him. She further alleged that her husband had thre*tened to k*ll her and her children for r*tual purposes.

“He went and brought the knife (machete) and started dr*gging me and I was screaming. We started dr*gging the knife and I cut him on his head two times. After he fell down, I became very scared and I called my daughter and my brother in-law to come immediately and we rushed him to the hospital but no doctor was around to attend to him. We went back home where he later d*ed,” she said.

The suspect revealed that she had been married to the victim for over 35 years and gave birth to six children of whom only two survived. Mrs Amadi claimed she raised alarm during the argument that led to the unfortunate incident, but that no one responded.
She also said she had earlier reported the alleged maltreatment by her late husband to his family but no one intervened.

The suspect is how appealing to the people of Umuebule in Etche and the state to pardon her. However, image maker of the police command, SP Nnamdi Omoni said preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect, after using the matchete on her husband’s head, washed off the bl**d stain on the cutla*s.
