One Uwani Danjuma hacked his wife with a matchete in Uddu, Niger state, because she planned to re-marry after his death, according to a report by TheNation.
According to the 30-year-old man, his wife had told him, when he was sick, weeks earlier, that if he dies, she will re-marry another man.
The suspect who said he killed her when she was sleeping, added that: “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 hell fire for that unguarded comment.”
