COURT REMAND 49YRS OLD MAN FOR KILLING HIS WIFE OVER SACHET WATER

A 49-year-old man, Lawrence Itakpe, has been remanded in custody by a Yaba Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State for 30 days for allegedly killing his wife, Rebecca, over sachet water at their house in the Ajah area of Lagos State.


Itakpe was arraigned on one count of murder over the incident which occurred on December 5, 2022.



The suspect and the deceased, who were reportedly married for 11 years with two kids, argued over sachet water.


During the argument, the suspect rushed into the kitchen and returned with a kitchen knife, with which he allegedly stabbed his wife multiple times in the chest and neck.


Information available indicates that a security guard knocked on the couple’s door while the argument was on, but the defendant allegedly refused to open the door.



The charge read, “That you, Lawrence Itakpe, on December 5, 2022, around 5pm at 50, Abimbola Street, Seaside Estate, Badore Ajah, Lagos State, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully slaughter one Rebecca Itakpe, aged 47, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.”


Magaji asked the court to remand the defendant in custody for 30 days pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.


Granting the request, the presiding Chief Magistrate, O.Y. Adefope, adjourned the case till January 31, 2023.
