Confessing to the crime, the suspect said his wife was sleeping when he carried out his heinous crime, saying that he purposely killed his wife because of her comment to him.

“I can’t imagine my own wife telling me that if I died, she will remarry. I lost my temper and inflicted injuries on her neck with matchete which led to her death.”

“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 hellfire for that unguarded comment,” Danjuma said.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mohammad Abubakar, said the suspect was arrested based on a tip-off, adding that he had confessed to the crime
