A Naval Rating officer's wife has reportedly committed suicide over a misunderstanding with her husband at the Igando area of Lagos State.

According to the reports, the deceased, Mrs Omojoye, is said to have left their home on Sunday, January 15, 2017, saying that she was going to church.

The family of the deceased became worried after she failed to return home later that evening, and her husband, Seaman Band Omojoye, decided to check the church, only to be told that she had not come there.

Efforts to reach her on her phone proved futile, until the deceased returned home on Wednesday, January 18, 2017, looking ruffled and claiming to have been abducted.

According to Vanguard, neighbours of the couple claim that her husband did not believe her, insisting that she was lying.

An argument reportedly ensued between the pair, during which the deceased is said to have gone inside their room and drank an insecticide.

Thinking that she was pretending, the husband of the deceased ignored her, only to discover, too late, that she was dead.

On the contrary, Punch reports that the Naval Rating is being accused of beating his wife to death over the same argument.

It was gathered that the 30-year-old suspect had gone to bring back his 29-year-old wife from the Cherubim and Seraphim Church in the area, where she was said to have been since Sunday and shortly after they entered their apartment, an argument ensued between them, leading to the deadly fight.

When contacted, the Western Naval Command Information Officer, Lieutenant Commander Chinwe Umar, said that the Rating was in police custody, adding that further investigations into the case were ongoing.
