A 39-year-old man, identified as Farida Banti, of Hungu village in theMariga Local Government Area in Niger State has been nabbed by the state’s Police for alleged murder of his wife.
The suspect was said to have killed his wife, Hajo, also known as Maijari, with a cutlass over their frequent misunderstanding.
It was gathered that the suspect had earlier sent his wife to her parent’s house “to learn manners.”
After some time, it was learnt that the suspect demanded that Hajo should return to his home, but she allegedly refused to return.
The man confessed to the Police, “I inflicted deep cuts on my wife, which resulted in her death, because she refused to obey me.
“In fact, it was extreme provocation that made me kill my wife.”
Asked whether he regretted his action, Banti said he felt bad for killing his wife but insisted that “women must learn to obey their husbands so that what happened to my wife will not happen to them.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, confirmed the incident, saying the suspect had confessed to the crime.
Abubakar said the matter would be charged to court as soon as investigations into the case were completed.
