THE police have arrested a lady and her lover for the murder of her husband in Agbor, Delta State.

The suspect, one Solomon Sunday, was alleged to have clubbed the victim, Mr. Obi Agada, with a plank while the wife, Alice Akwe, was in the bathroom.

Sources said that Alice’s lover, Solomon and her husband, Obi were in a cold war for long, battling over Alice.

However, it degenerated on, December 30, 2013, when they got locked in a fisticuff and in the ensuing melee, the suspect hit his rival with a plank on the head. The impact was so high that it knocked the victim down and made blood to gush out of his head.

Obi was rushed to the Central Hospital, Agbor, from where he was referred to the Delta State University Teaching Hospital, Oghara, where he was confirmed dead.

According to the acting Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Charles Muka, both suspects would soon be charged to court, adding that the corpse of late Obi had been deposited at the Central Hospital, Agbor, for autopsy.
