Husband kills wife for planning to re-marry after his death


One Uwani Danjuma has terminated the life of his wife for telling him that she was going to remarry in the event he died when he fell sick.

The incident happened at Uddu Village in the Rijau Local Government Area of Niger state.

30 years old Danjuma, however after regaining his health attacked his wife with cutlass clubbing her to death on the grounds of what she said when he was sick.

The suspect who was arrested and currently in detention, admitted the crime to newsmen when he was paraded at the State Police Command.

However, he didn’t show contrition, saying, “I am not regretting killing her since she wanted me to die, I killed her so that she will not remarry.  She should not have said that to my hearing, there is power in the spoken words; so let her go. Allah will send her to hell fire for that unguarded comment.”
