A Nigerian woman living in the US has stabbed her husband who is equally a Nigerian to death after she felt hurt and betrayed by her husband, who she alleged was having affairs with her sister, their nanny’s daughter and several women.

The News Journal, a US based newspaper in Delaware where the incident happened last Thursday reports that 35-year-old Temitope Adebamiro(pictured) has been charged with killing her husband, Adeyinka Adebamiro, who she claimed abused and cheated on her with several women including her sister and their nanny’s daughter, according to court records.

According to court documents obtained by the paper, 37-year-old Adeyinka, was found stabbed in a first-floor spare bedroom of the couple’s home in the 1300 block of Healy Court early Thursday.

Police were called to the home at midnight, and on arrival found Adeyinka unconscious with a stab wound to the upper body. He was later pronounced dead by paramedics at 1:37 a.m..

It was said that the victim, his wife, and their two children and nanny had been living at the home for the past two years.
Officers took residents of the home – including Temitope, who was wearing blood-stained clothing according to court documents.

According to police and documents, the two had been married for more than 10 years, during which time she told investigators that he’d physically abused her, even while pregnant with their two children.

She also told investigators her husband had been cheating on her with various women, including her own sister and the nanny’s daughter, papers said. The papers, however, did not say how old the nanny’s daughter was.

Temitope also told investigators her husband had sent her to Nigeria for several months, papers said. After returning in December, she had to stay in a hotel near the Philadelphia airport for four days because her husband refused to let her into their Red Lion home.

He then paid for her to fly back to Nigeria for a few more months, according to documents. About this time, she learned that her husband had spent Christmas with the nanny’s daughter.
