“I can’t imagine my own wife telling me that if I died, she will remarry. I lost my temper and inflicted injuries on her neck with matchete which led to her death.

“I am not regretting killing her since she wanted me to die, I killed her so that she will not remarry.  She should not have said that to my hearing, there is power in the spoken words; so let her go. Allah will send her to hellfire for that unguarded comment.”

The Police Public Relations, in the state, Mohammad Abubakar, said the suspect was arrested based on a tip-off, adding that he had confessed to the crime
