Kinikanwo was said to have died around 1 am at their Nkporlu-Rumuigbo residence as a result of the injuries sustained from the stabs.
The younger brother to the late Councillor, Victor Akandu Amadi, said his late brother was killed by his wife according to information given to them by the 15-year-old daughter of the couple when they rushed to his residence early Thursday morning.
