Police arrest 84-year-old man for allegedly killing 75-year-old wife for sex-starving him
The Police Command in Edo has arrested one Gabriel Ahuwa, 84, for allegedly killing his 75 year-old wife for denying him sex.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, announced the suspect’s arrest during a news briefing on Wednesday in Benin.
The octogenarian was among 198 other suspects, Nwabuzor said, who were apprehended in the state for various crimes, such as armed robbery, kidnapping and murder, among others.
The police spokesman said the suspect was still not remorseful, even after killing his wife, as he still claimed that his action was the only solution to her sex-starving him.
Speaking with journalists later, the suspect said his wife had been denying him sex for a long time.
“My wife was not listening to me; anytime I asked her to come and sleep with me, she would always decline. We have had seven children together, five boys and two girls,” he said.
According to him, the issue was brought to the hearing of the children and one of her daughters waded in; yet no change.
“I reported the matter to my family, and her family too, but she failed to listen to them and continued with her old ways.
”Meanwhile, I heard that some pastors were sleeping with her,” the suspect said.
He, however, said that he regretted his action.
