Umar Audu, 21, has been arrested by police in Niger State for allegedly killing one Abubakar Mohammadu of the Fulani Camp, Wawa village, in New-Bussa.
According to the police, the suspect was arrested on Tuesday by a team of policemen attached to the New-Bussa Division.
DailyGist gathered that Umar lived with the deceased in the same place.
He was alleged to have killed the victim on suspicion that Muhammadu was making advances to his wife.
It was learnt that sometime in May 2019, the suspect’s wife, Hassan Audu, reported to him that the deceased 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 making advances to his wife but he reportedly ignored the warnings.
On the day of the incident, the suspect reportedly attacked the victim with a machete and inflicted deep cuts on his head, resulting in Muhammad’s death.
In an interview with Northern City News, 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 Muhammadu will never see my wife again, Allah will judge him.”
