‘On that fateful day, my late husband came to my house to collect a chain and a cloth from me which he did. We later started an argument, I tried to calm him down but he refused.
‘He left but came back to meet me at my business place, the next day. He said he wanted to collect the children’s clothes but I told him they will be going to school. I pleaded with him.
‘All this while I was holding a knife and he started beating me. Unfortunately, the knife I was holding pierced his stomach and he fell down. He was rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.’”
