Edo State Police Command has arrested an 84-year-old man, Gabriel Uhuwa, for allegedly killing his wife for refusing to have sex with him.

The command confirmed the arrest on Wednesday, while parading 198 suspects arrested for offences ranging from armed robbery, kidnapping and unlawful possession of firearms to murder and cultism among others.

The command Public Relations Officer, Chidi Nwabuzor, said Uhuwa was arrested for allegedly killing his 75-year-old wife for refusing to have sex with him.

Nwabuzor said Uhuwa has been having issues with his wife over her alleged refusal to have sex with him whenever he asked.

“I reported the matter to my family and her family members but she failed to listen to them and continued her old ways and I was hearing information that pastors were sleeping with her.

“Each time I demanded sex, either she would tell me she was sick or she had an ulcer, yet I was hearing a rumour that she was sleeping with other men and I don’t have money to carry prostitutes,” the suspect added.

He said following his complaint, his children refused to send him money as well as taking his calls, alleging that his late wife poisoned their minds against him.

“So, on Saturday last week in the afternoon in the house, I picked up a cutlass and macheted her. I did it in anger because she was not obeying me and I want people to 1know of it,” he added.

He however said he regretted killing his wife after committing the crime.
