A 29-year-old man identified as David has been arrested by officers of Niger State Police Command for stabbing his wife, Rifkatu, to death over allegations that she was having an extramarital affair.
“I used a knife to kill her for her refusal to adhere to my instruction. I told her to desist from sleeping with men, but she boasted that nothing would happen, so, I lost my temper and stabbed her. My wife was stubborn; she never listened to me; I even sat her down and told her the implications of what she was doing, but she did not repent and she had to pay the supreme price,” Ishaya told Northern city news
Confirming his arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, Muhammad Abubakar, said the matter has been charged to court.
