 “The suspect was arrested by police operatives from Bariga Police Station on February 2 at No 23 Jossy Castro Street, Lagos for attempting to kill his wife with a knife.

“The woman was rescued by the police following a distress call received. The knife was recovered and registered as exhibit. The couples were married for 13 years and blessed with two children, ages 11 and 9. Both are from Akwa Ibom state. 

“The suspect lost his banking job five years ago and the woman is not working. The couples were having series of crisis underpinned on matrimonial rascality and lack of maintenance. The event that led to the attempt made by the suspect to stab the victim with a knife, started with a mere argument,” Bala stated. 

According to him, investigation is ongoing and the suspect will soon be charged to court at the conclusion of investigation. 

In another development, a teenager, Isiaka Olalekan, has been arrested by the Bariga Police Station, for breaking and looting his master’s shop. 

Bala, who confirmed the arrest of the suspect, said he was arrested by a patrol team at the Third Mainland Bridge on February 6, narrated that the police received information that a shop belonging to one Faruk Nobi, of No 287 Boboreji Market, Lagos Island was burgled.

“The 19-year-old suspect, Isiaka Olalekan, was intercepted by policemen patrolling the Third Mainland Bridge. Four different types of expensive mobile phones were recovered from the suspects and shop breaking implements. The suspect confessed to have stolen the phones from his boss’s shop,” he said.
