Husband Allegedly Strangles 25-yr-old Wife To Death After Being Confronted For Cheating
According to the Daily Post, Adamu Alhaji Ibrahim, 31, was detained by the Borno State Police Command after reportedly killing his 25-year-old wife Fatima Alhaji Bukar by strangling her to death after being challenged about adultery or infidelity.
The deceased, according to sources, is a Borno House of Assembly member who represents the Ngala Local Government Area.
The suspect, together with his companion Bukar Wadiya and a Honda car, traveled to Gwange Division, according to the command’s public relations officer, ASP Sani Kamilu Muhammed.
They transported the corpse into the car and called the police for assistance right away. He claimed to be an employee of UBA and that when he returned from work, he saw his wife lying in a pool of blood. However, early investigations showed that there were some domestic disputes between the couple and Mr.
Adamu over the latter’s claimed extramarital activities at their marital residence.
The following items were discovered when investigating the home where the event took place: a small pestle, a rope, a rug carpet splashed with blood, a mucus-soaked pillow, and a knife.
Further research showed the manner in which the victim, who died last Tuesday in Maiduguri, was strangled near Gidan Dembe. Last Wednesday, her remains were interred in accordance with Islamic customs.
