A 30 years old man identified as Uwani Danjuma has allegedly killed his wife over an alleged plan to re-marry after his death.
Our reporter gathered that the incident occurred at Uddu Village in the Rijau Local Government Area of Niger state.
Danjuma was reported to have disclosed that his wife had told him when he was sick weeks earlier that if he dies that she was going to re-marry another man.
Apparently angered by the wife’s statement, Danjuma allegedly attacked and killed her with a cutlass after he had recovered from his illness.
Confessing to the crime, Danjuma disclosed that his wife was sleeping when he carried out the heinous crime, saying 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 machete 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 hell fire for that unguarded comment.”
