A court in Lagos has sentenced a woman after she stabbed her fiance to death over a disagreement.

A 27-year-old woman, Blessing Edet, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for stabbing her fiancé, Edet Ebong, 33, to death during a fight over her refusal to wear an engagement ring he gave her at their residence in Lagos.

According to TheNation, the Lagos State government arraigned the convict on July 5, 2017, on a lone count charge of murder before Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo.

During trial, the prosecution called five witnesses including the sister to the deceased, Esther Ebong, a medical doctor and the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) while Blessing testified in her defence.

Blessing had told the court that the deceased came to her apartment at midnight, woke her up and requested her to cook a meal for him. She said she refused to do so because she was tired.

The convict said that the late Ebong then went into the kitchen and found the engagement ring he had given her beside the stove. She said he became angry and asked her why she was not wearing the ring.

According to her, the deceased at this point broke their mirror and used part of it to stab her as a result of which she cried out to neighbours for help.

She said it was in the course of the fight that ensued between them that she stabbed Ebong in his abdomen with a kitchen knife before any of their neighbours got there.

Delivering judgement in the matter on Wednesday, Justice Taiwo held that Blessing acted in self-defence. The trial judge also commuted the charge of murder against Blessing to voluntary manslaughter.

Justice Taiwo held that the convict did not intend to cause grievous bodily harm to the deceased when she stabbed him in the lower part of his abdomen. She then proceeded to sentence the convict to ten years imprisonment, with effect from August 2015 when she was remanded at Kirikiri Female Prisons.
