”The suspect is not remorseful. After killing his wife, he still claimed that his action was the only solution to her starving him of s3x,” the police spokesman said.

The suspect who spoke to journalists during the parade, reportedly said his wife had been denying him sex for a long time leading to his frustration.

“My wife does not listen to me. Anytime I asked her to come and sleep with me, she will decline. We have given birth to seven children.

“I reported my wife to my family and hers too, but she failed to listen to them and continued with her old ways.

”Meanwhile, I heard that she has been sleeping with some pastors,” the suspect said.
