INCREDIBLE : Man kills wife in Lagos for allegedly infecting him with HIV

Philip Katongu (pictured above) from Wamba, Nasarawa
State has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his wife to
death, Punch reports.
According to reports, Katongu stabbed his wife to death in a
street at Oniru Estate, Maroko, Lagos, where they lived.
Police say she was stabbed at least three times. After he was
arrested by operatives of the Department of Criminal
Investigations, Yaba, Lagos, Katongu, 45, claimed he killed
her because she infected him with HIV and then wanted to
leave him for another man. He explained:
"I married Justina, my second wife in December 2010. I
later learnt that she had given birth to two girls for a
man. The girls died of AIDS. However, when we first met,
she did not tell me all these. I explained to her that I
have a wife with children and I wanted to marry her too.
Before marriage, I told her we should go to hospital to
conduct HIV test, but she refused and said that she was
HIV negative. So we started sleeping together."
Katongu claimed that without his knowledge, his wife
had been going to Abuja for medical treatment every
three months for HIV, until March 2013 when she took
him along.
He said it was at the hospital that she disclosed her HIV
status to him.
"I was angry and told the doctor who equally blamed
her for not disclosing it to me. The doctor then tested me,
and I was positive. We came back to Lagos and
continued with the relationship because I loved her. But
suddenly, she told me she wanted to pack out from my
house that she was no longer interested in marrying me
having had another person in Abuja. In fact, the man
usually called her on phone while we were together.
"I told her that with her status, she should not go and be
infecting people with the virus. And that I will kill her and
kill myself. We started fighting and I stabbed her. It was
in the early hours. I stabbed her three times with a knife.
She shouted and people were knocking at our door.
After she died, I stabbed myself, and the people broke
the door open. I woke up to find myself in a hospital. I
feel very bad that I killed my wife. I loved her very
much."
