Wife nearly Killed Her Husband With Dagger Over Girlfriend

Marriage is a respected institution that men and women should look forward to but when a woman chases her husband with a digger and another woman decides to have extra marital affairs, then there are questions that should be answered.

This was the case in the family of Mr and Mrs Ogodi of Ado town in the Karu area of Nasarawa State.
