The Imo State Police Command has arrested 82-year-old Theophilus Okere, a retired Director General of the Imo State Broadcasting Corporation for allegedly killing his wife, Beatrice Okere.

The former DG stabbed his wife to death on Monday in Imerienwe community of Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area of Imo State and fled after carrying out the dastardly act.

The spokesman of the Imo State Police Command, Orlando Ikeokwu, confirmed the development.

Ikeokwu said preliminary investigations revealed that after killing his wife, the 82-year-old ran away until he was arrested by the officers of the command after a tip off.

According to reports, Beatrice, in her seventies, was taken to an undisclosed hospital by indigenes of the community after the incident happened, but due to loss of so much blood, she died.

The Commissioner, Imo State Police Command, Isaac Akinmoyede, said investigation is ongoing to ascertain if the man committed the heinous crime.

Akinmoyede said it was after this Okere will be charged to court.
