A Nigerian national living in India has reportedly been stabbed to death by his wife, a Ghanaian, over alleged infidelity.
The deceased, identified simply as 30-year-old Emmanuel, and his wife Abigail were said to have had an argument after the woman got to know of her man’s alleged involvement with another woman.
During the argument Abigail was said to have stabbed Emmanuel with a sharp object. Emmanuel was rushed to a hospital for treatment but was declared dead on arrival.
The incident reportedly happened in Outer Delhi.
Police say Abigail, who sells snacks from her home, has been arrested, and a case of murder has been registered at Nihal Vihar police station.
According to Additional DCP (Outer) Sudhanshu Dhama, “Police received information from DDU Hospital that a man had been brought there by his wife and was declared dead on arrival. When police reached the hospital, it was revealed the deceased had sustained injuries made by a sharp object. Abigail was nowhere to be found.”
“Her phone was also switched off, but hours later, she was found and questioned.”
He added that the duo got married in September 2019, but had been living separately since August 2020.
He said, “They had a strained relationship. During questioning, the accused revealed that on Sunday, she went to see Emanual and got to know that he was involved with another woman, following which a scuffle ensued. Early on Monday, Emanual went to her house, and an altercation again took place. This was when she stabbed him with a knife.”
