A 29-year-old man, Ishaya David, who allegedly killed his wife has said she paid the supreme price for cheating on him.
The suspect, who hails from Sabon Kaida village in Gurara Local Government Area of Niger State, was said to have killed his 25-year-old wife, Rifkatu David, over allegations of promiscuity.
It was gathered that the suspect stabbed his wife to death for having an affair with her ex-boyfriend.
Ishaya was subsequently arrested by police detectives attached to the Gawu Babangida Division.
Narrating what led to the killing on Thursday, Ishaya said, “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.”
The suspect further described the deceased as an unfaithful woman, who had no respect for her husband.
“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,” he added.
The Command Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, confirmed the incident, stating that the matter has been charged to court.
