Lagos Big Girl Njideka , Has Been Arrested for Trying to Kill Her Husband Over Properties

Police at State CID, Panti, Yaba has arrested a Lagos lady over an alleged attempt to kill her husband of 18 years following a disagreement over properties. The big girl identified as Florence Njideka Chukwuma, a resident of No 48 Olukotun street, Ejigbo, allegedly poured a gallon of petrol on her husband, Chinedu, during a quarrel over a property and tried to set him ablaze. 

Fortunately, the 47-year-old man escaped by jumping a fence before she could commit the heinous act. Sadly, he sustained injuries from the attack. 

Njideka was said to have destroyed some imported vehicles and house properties worth millions of naira and even chased her husband out of his own house.

Consequently, the husband, Chinedu, has filed for a divorce before Lagos High court. In the suit, he accused his estranged wife of attempted murder and destruction of his properties. He also alleged that the marriage fell apart due to her constant fighting, nagging, intimidation and harassment.

Their traditional ruler in Nnewi, Anambra state, Igwe Kenneth Orizu had earlier waded into the matter and separated the couple after the council discovered that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

But Florence insisted that she would not quit the marriage because she already has five children and that the two of them will remain married for life. 

Trouble started after Chinedu went to see their kids at school, on returning home, he said Njideka locked the gate to their house after he got in. He said she then poured petrol on him and attempted to set him ablaze. He said he had to jump the fence to wriggle free, sustaining injuries in the process. 

The man was then taken to hospital for treatments. He reported the matter to police who he claimed didn't handle it well, thus prompting him to write a petition to the SCID before the matter was transferred.

In her reaction, Njideka confirmed the divorce suit, but denied making attempt on her husband's life. She said it's true they have issues but it has not reached the extent of her wanting to kill him.
