Police arrest woman accused of killing her husband in Rivers

Chioma Bright, a mother of four, was arrested in Rivers State on suspicion of murdering her husband.

The woman has been jailed at the SCID in Port Harcourt for four weeks, according to human rights campaigner Harrison Gwamnishu.

The arrest, according to Gwamnishu, is a ruse by her husband’s relatives to keep her away so they may take over the deceased’s assets.

Adata Bio-Briggs, the chairperson of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), Rivers State chapter, confirmed the news on Monday, May 30. She said pathologists had conducted an autopsy to determine the cause of the man’s death.

“Update on Mrs. Chioma Bright. After thorough investigations, the following was discovered. She’s was remanded to police custody via a remand warrant by the Court. An autopsy was done and further samples has been sent for toxicology. The results will determine further actions by the court.” the lawyer said.
