Pregnant wife stabs husband to death over “baba ijebu” lotto


Onyinyechi Akunne, has been arraigned in an Ikeja court for allegedly killing her 35-year-old husband, Abuchi Akunne, with a kitchen knife over a lottery ticket of Premier Lotto Ltd also known as “Baba Ijebu”.

According to her prosecutor, Mrs C.K Tuiyi-Carena, 29-year-old Onyinyechi who committed the offence on March 28, 2015 at her residence located at No. 85, Idimu Road, Ejigbo, a surbub of Lagos, was pregnant at that time.

“On the day of the alleged murder, Onyinyechi was preparing a meal while Abuchi was
sitting on a chair in their home looking at his ‘Baba Ijebu’ lottery tickets. Angered by her husband’s action, Onyinyechi scolded him for his love for gambling and a fight ensued between them.

She took the kitchen knife she was using to cut vegetables and stabbed her husband fatally in the chest. The stabbing inflicted a deep cut in Abuchi’s chest which led to excessive blood loss and his eventual death.

The victim died before he could be taken to hospital by Onyinyechi and concerned neighbours” she said.

Onyinyechi who denied committing the offence, gave birth to a baby girl while in Kirikiri female prison. She has also opted for a plea bargain through her counsel Mr Q.U. Ogudu, which the Lagos State government is not objecting to

The case was adjourned till April 6 by Justice Josephine Oyefeso, who also asked for a report on the plea bargain agreement, after the Lagos State prosecutor confirmed that both parties are working on that. .
