Man Beats Wife To Death In Niger Over Alleged Infidelity

A Nigerian man has been arrested by the police, for beating his wife to death in Niger State over an alleged infidelity.

The Nigerian man identified as Jibrin Abu from Dabogi village in Lapai, was accused of beating his wife, Victoria Aliyu, to death with a heavy wood over an alleged infidelity after several warnings. The suspect who claimed he warned his late wife to stop taking calls from her male friends, said she reportedly ignored his warning.

Speaking to Punch’s correspondent, the suspect who described his late wife as “a disgrace to womanhood,” said;

“I used a wood to kill her after several warnings for her to desist from taking calls from men in my house.

“I have been suspecting that my wife was sleeping around with other men in my village but in the heat of argument, I killed her.”

“My late wife brought men into our matrimonial home and my culture abhors such an act; that was why I killed her to save the family from the shame,” he added.

The State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, who confirmed the incident said Abu, after killing his wife, attempted to commit suicide by drinking Sniper insecticide, but he was rushed to the Lapai General Hospital by police operatives and was treated. The suspect would be charged to court soon.
