Kebbi Police Nab Housewife For Killing Husband

A 30-year-old woman, Farida Abubakar, has allegedly killed her husband in Birnin-Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the state command, SP Nafi’u Abubakar, in a statement on Friday said Farida was arrested by the police on Thursday at about 11:40pm, after receiving information of a strange noise in the deceased’s house.

The PPRO said the Divisional Police headquarters, Gwadan Gwaji, in Birnin Kebbi, received a report from neighbours about strange noise being heard from the house of the deceased, Attahiru Ibrahim of Aliero quarters, Birnin Kebbi, and his gate was also locked.

He said on reaching the residence, policemen found Ibrahim lying down in a pool of his blood and was later confirmed dead by a medical doctor.

“Similarly, his estranged wife, Farida Abubakar, 30, was also seen inside the compound,” he said.

He said the Commissioner of Police in the state, Ahmed Magaji-Kontagora, had directed the Birnin Kebbi Divisional Police headquarters to immediately transfer the case to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).
