  1. We make Jesus a joke in this part of the world! You can imagine the tongue speaking and the display! Where were all these when he was stabbing the late wife 76 times? He should be ashamed to even profess his faith with all the lies he cooked saying the late wife stabbed herself? Please his death should quickly be done with and other wife bashers will learn from this.

  2. Both parents should also be blamed for this ugly incidence. It goes a long way to serve as lesson to most of us that are single. I feel for him as a fellow man to have been sentenced to death not for anything but for his wife whom I know must have courted before weeding.

  3. Hey Linda Echi, i just came across this story so i dont know nothing but one simple question. Did you see him stab his wife once out of the 76 times?

    • Deola,
      Abeg go and sit down. The man has been found GUILTY by a competent court of stabbing his wife 76 times. The COURT said he did, so Linda is right.
      Stop this crazy spin. It is what is destroying Nigeria.

      • I didnt say he didnt do it or did. I just dont see why he/she is judging him also, not like we are all pure regardless of religion.

        “The COURT said he did, so Linda is right” – So will you agree with the cases of George Zimmerman & Michael Dunn who murdered 2 black boys in america and were not found guilty ? Michael dunn was found guilty for attempted murder on 3 out of 4 boys(4th died from the gunshot) but not found guilty of murder by competent courts and judges also.

        • Why are you comparing oranges with pineapples?

          In the case of Zimmerman and Dunn – none of them denied shooting their victims. It is an established fact that they killed their victims. The issue was then technical – could it be called 1st degree murder under the interpretation of the stand your ground laws in the state of Florida?

          In mr arowolo’s case, his wife was found dead with over 76 stab wounds – he is claiming the wife stabbed herself. Does that even make sense to you? That a person would stab herself repeatedly till she died, lost an eye and a vital organ? Abeg… it is time to stop this nonsense, and bigotry and stop destroying the memory of the victim.

          If someone comes into my bedroom and finds me beaten up – the first suspect is the other person who has access to my bedroom and that is my husband. In Arowolo’s case he was seen running out of the room with blood on his hands and shirts. Who did he call and say come and see my wife who just stabbed herself to death?

          PLEASE!

    • Deola,
      I have a question for you please if you don’t mind. Is it possible for a person to stab themselves over 70 times? I would imagine that if a person is stabbing themself, at the 10 or 11th stab the pain and loss of blood would weaken the person and make them stop. Besides your question to Linda should be directed at the courts that found him guilty. The guy claims his wife stabbed herself, if he claimed there was an intruder or 3rd party its quite different. His version of events make him sound guilty
