A 40-year-old man, Mr Joseph Abanda has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command for allegedly killing one Umaru Yakubu of Kwagana village in Paikoro Local Government Area of the state.

It is alleged that the suspect killed the victim for having sex with his wife in a bush.

According to Nothern City News, Abanda, who hails from Beni Village in the Muya Local Government Area of the state, had caught the deceased having sex with his wife in a bush and attacked and killed him.

The suspect had previously reportedly warned the deceased to stay away from his wife, adding that he was prepared to kill and suffer the consequences.

The suspect admitted that he killed the deceased with a stick and another dangerous weapon.

“I had earlier warned him to leave my wife alone; I asked him to stop sleeping with my wife otherwise I would kill him and damn the consequences; the worst that would happen was that I would go to jail.

“I killed him for the atrocities he committed against my family; it is an abomination in Islam to sleep with another man’s wife. It is a mortal sin,” he said.
