“The husband who is the primary suspect has been arrested and currently in police custody while she is in the hospital.”

Confirming the report, the Police Public Relations Officer, Onome Onovwakpoyeya, told The PUNCH that the suspect informed the police that his wife was mentally deranged and he had to keep her in such a condition because nobody was willing to help her.

The police spokesperson said, “The DPO said the man alleged that his wife had a mental problem and that she is a witch. He said he took her to her family but they rejected her. He said he equally took her to several herbalist homes but after sometime, he had to take her back home.
