The Niger State Police Command had on Sunday, arrested a 39-year-old man, Farida Banti, of Hungu village in the Mariga Local Government Area of the state, for murdering his wife.
Farida was reported to have killed his wife, Hajo with a cutlass over their frequent misunderstanding.
Northern City News gathered that Farida had earlier sent his wife to her parent’s house “to learn manners.” According to him, she was disrespectful and needed to learn how to respect him.
After some time, it was learned that Farida demanded that Hajo returns to his home, but she allegedly refused to return.
Farida confessed to killing his wife with a cutlass over what he described as “incessant misunderstanding.”
“I inflicted deep cuts on my wife, which resulted in her death because she refused to obey me.
“In fact, it was an extreme provocation that made me kill my wife.”
When asked whether he regretted his action, Banti said he felt bad for killing his wife but insisted that “women must learn to obey their husbands so that what happened to my wife will not happen to them.”
