Man stabs wife to death over alleged extramarital affair


29-year-old Ishaya David, has been arrested by men of the Niger State Police Command for allegedly stabbing his wife, Rifkatu, to death in the Gurara Local Government Area of the state over allegations that she was having an extramarital affair.

“I used a knife to kill her for her refusal to adhere to my instruction. I told her to desist from sleeping with men, but she boasted that nothing would happen, so, I lost my temper and stabbed her. My wife was stubborn; she never listened to me; I even sat her down and told her the implications of what she was doing, but she did not repent and she had to pay the supreme price,” Ishaya told Northern city news

Confirming his arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, Muhammad Abubakar, said the matter has been charged to court.
