On the suspicion of infidelity, Adeniyi Jose, a 45-year-old indigene of Ondo State but resident in Niger, has strangled his wife of eight years, 39-year-old Chioma Gloria Ibeh, from Imo state.

The incident occurred on Monday in Suleja, Niger State.

It was gathered that Jose used a rope to strangle his wife, and after confirming that she was dead, he consumed a poisonous substance in a failed suicide attempt.

The unconscious bodies of the couple were found by the wife’s sister, Brenda Ibeh, who visited the couple and didn’t get an answer when she knocked.

She peeped through the kitchen window and found her sister’s body with bruises all over, a pillow on her face, and a rope circling her body.

She invited the police and when they gained entrance into the house, they found Chioma had died.
Jose was rushed to Suleja General Hospital, where he’s said to be receiving treatment.

Linda Ikeji blog quoted a source saying that the husband was a jealous man and frequently fought his wife if he suspected she was getting undue attention from men. He reportedly disliked seeing her talking or discussing with other men.

The couple have been married since 2014 and have a son together.

According to the sister of the deceased, this is not the first time Adeniyi Jose was making an attempt on his wife’s life.

Brenda said Jose had no job and her sister was the breadwinner.

She said: “He is jobless while my sister is the one feeding him and taking care of their 9-year-old child. My Sister works at the registrar’s department of the General Hospital, Suleja Niger state.”

Brenda added: “Jose first attempted to kill my sister in the first week of April when my sister returned from fixing our dad’s house in the village. My dad was with Road Safety and his pension money was used to fix his house.

“We agreed that she should play that role because she was a graduate. He called her and disturbed her so much that she had to run back and when she did, that same night, he almost killed her with a sharp knife he had bought and drank sniper. The case was reported to the police at Suleja and nothing was done about it,” she said.
