Details surrounding the incident were still sketchy as of the time of filing this report.
According to feelers, the couple had been quarreling over alleged infidelity on the part of the deceased.
Sunday Nation learnt that the woman had approached the husband were he sat and struck him at the back of his head with a block-heeled shoe.
The husband, spitting out saliva, reportedly fell on the ground immediately and died before he could be rushed to a hospital.
A source who resides in the area said the woman is currently being held by the Police and confirmed the couple had at least one child together.
“What I know is she killed the husband with the heel of her shoe. She hit on the back of the head,” the resident told Sunday Nation.
“She said she had a misunderstanding with the husband. The husband slapped her and she seized the man on his shirt. And he slumped,” the Police source stated, adding that her claims will be verified when the corpse is seen by operatives.
The security source further noted that the woman is in Police custody so that “if she is indicted, she won’t be difficult to arrest, and if she is free harm won’t come to her.”
When reached for comments, the spokesperson of the Delta State Police Command said the Police are awaiting an official complaint from the family of the deceased.
