A man identified as Umar Audu has been arrested by the police in Niger state for killing his neighbour for allegedly wooing his wife.
21-year-old, Umar Audu, was arrested for killing one Abubakar Mohammadu, his neighbour, in Wawa village, New-Bussa.
According to reports, sometime in May, 2019, the suspect’s wife, Hassan Audu, 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 neighbour on several occasions to desist from making advances to his wife but he reportedly ignored the warnings.
The suspect during interrogations said he did not regret killing Muhammadu. Umar Audu 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.”
