A 26-year-old pregnant wife simply identified as Onyiyechi has been arrested by the Lagos state police command for stabbing her husband to death following an argument over the presidential candidates in Saturday’s general election at their home in Ejigbo on Sunday March 29th.

According to a report by Vanguard, the husband was supporting PDP while Onyiyechi supported the APC. An argument over who would win the presidential election degenerated into a fight with the wife stabbing her husband inside their one room apartment at the 81 military zone junction in Ejigbo.

A neighbor in their compound narrated what happened: “We were all outside waiting to vote when Onyiyechi rushed out, shouting for help. Out of curiosity, we all ran inside, only to discover blood all over the ground, on entering their apartment. On closer observation, we noticed that the blood was from her husband chest region. We met him on the ground. Before we could rush him to the hospital, he gave up the ghost.

“From all indication, it was clear that she attempted to manage the situation immediately the incident occurred. It was when she discovered that the situation had overwhelmed her that she raised alarm. I do not know the name of her husband.

“We only know that of his wife, who we fondly call Onyiyechi. The irony of this matter is that she is not cantankerous. She has never beaten a little child, let alone to fight with any neighbor. Again on that day, we saw both of them together. They were seen sitting outside, one hour before the incident occurred. Policemen from Ejigbo later came to remove the corpse to the Isolo morgue” the anonymous neighbor said.

The police arrested the suspect while further investigation into the matter is ongoing as some other version of the story claims the couple got into a fight following a disagreement they had after Onyiyechi decided to grate Okro she was to use in preparing their meal inside their one room apartment.

Her husband is reported to have instructed her to take it out but she refused which sparked a quarrel and then a fight between them.

The Tema District Council of Labour (TDCL) has given government two reduce fuel prices and fix the current “dumsor problems without further excuses.”

“World prices of crude oil have fallen drastically but government has blatantly refused to reduce the prices of fuel under the pretext that government is owing the Bulk Distribution Companies, thus, setting aside the laid down automatic adjustment formula being used in adjusting fuel prices without respecting the views of the TUC and other stakeholders”.

This was contained in a communiqué reached at the end of the TDCL’s Executive meeting held on Tuesday, March 10 2015.

The TDCL at the meeting expressed dissatisfaction and displeasure in the way government was handling the electricity power outages and government’s refusal to reduce fuel prices even though world prices of crude oil “have dropped down drastically”.

“Tema, being the industrial hub of the nation is being affected seriously by the electricity power outages as most of our factories and manufacturing firms have been forced to produce below average and even the acceptable production quantities thus, operating at a loss”, the statement signed by the TDCL’s Chairman, Wilson Agana and Secretary, Ebenezer Kodwo Taylor stated.

Some companies have shut down and hundreds of employers have been laid-off due to the ongoing power crisis, with several other companies threatening to lay-off some more workers.

Despite the current challenges, the TDCL expressed optimism President John Mahama will do everything to ensure his “government fixes this uncomfortable electricity power outages and further reduce fuel prices to ensure industrial peace and harmony” especially in the Tema, “the industrial hub of the nation” and most affected by the dumsor challenges.
