Woman Kills Husband for Having Sex Without Condom
When it gets to this extreme what else is next?
Woman kills husband in Makurdi, Benue State, for having sex without
condom by John Akpodovhon, Makurdi
COURT spectators in a Makurdi Magistrate Court got the shock of their
lives when a housewife confessed that she hacked her husband to death
for daring her for sex on a night she was not keen to do it without using a condom.
Mrs. Agbase Nenge Agidi whose reason for terminating the life of her
husband was because he was HIV/AIDS positive and wanted to have
sexual relationship with her unprotected which she frowned at.
The suspect told the court that they had worked out how the husband
and her could have sex which was duly accepted by both of them, but
explained that she was shocked when on that penultimate night, he
decided to have it against the established rule.
The woman recalled in tears how the late husband lost his usual calm
when desperate about it and she resisted him because her acceptance
could spell doom for her, which aggravated the already charged
husband into assaulting her physically with all the strength in him.
Mrs Nenge who is already cooling off in the prison, said it was at
the point when her husband got hold of a cudgel which he used on her
that she realised that she was already in danger and had to fight
back for her dear life.
After struggling with her husband to get rid of the cudgel which she
eventually did, to protect herself from further attacks, she
mistakenly hit the husband on his head and he slumped and died.
The late Nenge`s wife admitted during cross examination that she hit
the husband on the head which led to his death but explained that it
was due to an act of provocation from her late husband who initially
attacked her when he knew he had flouted the rule and it was not safe
for her to have sex without condom.
