The Ondo State Police Command has arrested a woman identified as Queen Beatrice for allegedly killing her husband Emmanuel Ikujuni at Omotosho town in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State.
It was gathered that the suspect hit the head of the deceased with a plank following an argument that ensued between them when the deceased was allegedly calling another woman in the presence of his wife.

A sister to the deceased, Imoleayo Ikujuni, who confirmed the incident, narrated that the suspect challenged her late brother for calling another lady.
She said, “During the fight, she hit him with a plank and he died. The police have arrested her. The matter has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department in Akure for further investigation.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro, confirmed the incident and said an investigation has commenced on the matter.
A police source said the corpse of the deceased had been deposited at the mortuary while the police were awaiting the report of the autopsy.
