A 20-year-old man is being detained by the police after reportedly killing his wife over food.
According to reports from the Niger State Police Command, the two of them had a disagreement that ended in a serious brawl.
During their war, the man known as Danladi became angry and attacked her, knocking her unconscious.
She was taken to the hospital, where she succumbed to her injury after just a few minutes.
After his arrest, the deceased, known as Zulai Lawal, informed the police that he had no idea his activities would lead to his wife’s death.
He advised the police that he didn’t like the food she cooked, which caused the war to begin in the first place.
Danlandi said: “I never knew she would die. It was just a misunderstanding over mere pap and I did not know that when she fainted, she would not wake up. I should never have beaten her. I regret my action“
