The police in Niger State has apprehended a 21-year-old man, Umar Audu, for allegedly killing his neighbour, Abubakar Mohammadu of the Fulani Camp, Wawa village in New-Bussa, Borgu Local Government Area of the state.
Umar murdered the victim on suspicion that he was making love advances to his wife.
Earlier in May 2019, the suspect’s wife, Hassan Audu, was said to have reported to him that Mohammadu was disturbing her for an amorous relationship, which she turned down.
It was gathered that the suspect had warned the deceased on several occasions to desist from his actions, but he reportedly flayed the warnings.
But on a particular day, Umar couldn’t control his anger, took the laws into his hands and attacked the victim with a machete and inflicted deep cuts on his head, which resulted in Mohammadu’s death.
Speaking to newsmen while being paraded, the suspect said, “I don’t regret killing him because Mohammadu decided to die like a chicken. In his next life, he will not make advances to married women.
“I am ready to bear the consequences. Let the law take its course. I am fulfilled that Mohammadu will never see my wife again, Allah will judge him.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammad Abubakar, said that the matter would be charged to court after investigation.
