Both husband and wife are believed to be lawyers.
Police say they were alerted to the incident by a phone call on Thursday morning.
A team of detectives was mobilised to the scene where they found a man lying on the bed in a pool of blood.
Investigations revealed the killer, suspected to be his wife, had ripped out the man’s intestines with a knife, and severed his genitals.
The suspect is now receiving treatment at hospital.
Lagos police spokesman Chike Oti said the couple's three-year marriage had been fraught with domestic violence.
