MEN of the Niger State Police Command have arrested a 30 year old man and intend charging him to court for murder after he killed his wife for threatening to marry another husband after he died.
Danjuma Bisalla, has been arrested for allegedly killing his wife, Uwani, for saying that she would remarry if her husband died. Uwani was said to have made the comment while Bisalla was sick at Uddu village, in the Rijau Local Government Area of the state, resulting in her husband attacking her with a machete while she was sleeping, resulted in her death.
Mr Bisalla said: “I can’t imagine my own wife telling me that if I died, she would remarry. I lost my temper and inflicted injuries on her neck with a machete which led to her death.
“I don’t regret killing her since she wanted me dead, I killed her so that she would not remarry. She should not have said that to my hearing as there is power in the spoken words and Allah will send her to hell for that unguarded comment.”
Niger State Police Command spokesman Mohammad Abubakar, confirmed the incident, adding that the suspect admitted to the crime. He said Mr Bisalla inflicted injuries on the neck of the victim and she died.
