Operatives of the Niger State Police Command have arrested a 29- year- old, David Ishaya for allegedly killing his 25- year- old wife, Rifkatu David.
The suspect, a native of Sabon Kaida village in Guests Local Government Area of Niger State, was arrested by detectives attached to Gawu Babangida Division.
Speaking with reporters when he was being paraded at the state police command headquarters, David confessed to have killed his wife for being promiscuous saying, “It had reached the level that I could not bear her promiscuity anymore.”
It was said that the suspect stabbed his wife with knife to death for allegedly having an affair with her ex-boyfriend, against his warning to her.
The suspect said his late wife was an unfaithful woman, who continuously disgraced him with her promiscuous behaviour.
“My wife was stubborn, she never listened to me. I even sat her down and told her the implications of what she was doing; she did not repent and she had to pay the supreme price.
“I stabbed her with a knife for refusing to adhere to my instruction. I told her to desist (from) sleeping with men, but she boasted that nothing would happen. I lost my temper and killed her.”
Police spokesman, Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect had been charged to court.
