A man identified as Bello Muhe has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command for killing his wife.
The 25-year-old suspect, who hails from Gautan Fadama village in the Bagudo Local Government Area of Kebbi State, was said to have killed his 25-years-old wife, Husse Ali, for being promiscuous.
It was gathered that the suspect had earlier sent the wife to her parents over her adulterous lifestyle, but she reportedly continued the act at her parents’ home. After much pleading, he took her back but the deceased still continued to commit adultery.
Narrating to Northern City news how he killed her last week, Bello said:
“I used machete to kill her for refusing to adhere to my instruction; I told her to desist from sleeping around with other men but she disobeyed me and I blew my top and killed her. My wife was stubborn, I sat her down and told her the implications of what she was doing, she ignored me and she had to pay the price.”
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Niger state police command, Muhammad Abubakar, said Bello has been charged to court.
