A security guard identified as Nuhu has disappeared after allegedly killing his 38-year-old wife, Nafisa Ibrahim, in their one room apartment in Mahuta, Igabi Local Government area of Kaduna State.
According to The Nation, the incident happened on Tuesday at the house where Nuhu lives with his wife and works as a security guard.
The man and his late wife shared the same room in the uncompleted building while their daughters stayed in a different room.
Malam Mohammed Bashir, who claimed to be a guardian to the deceased, stated that the relations of the mother-of-five have accused the fleeing husband of being behind her mysterious death. He said:
“Her relations came from Plateau State over the issue. The husband and his late wife shared the same room in the uncompleted building, while the daughters stayed in a different room. No one can tell who killed her but her relations point an accusing finger at the husband. He ran away.
“All his personal belongings were removed from the room. We suspect him because they slept together in the room but when his wife’s body was found, he was nowhere to be found.
“Her daughter discovered the lifeless body inside the one-apartment room where they were squatting with the husband. She tried to wake the mother up thinking she was still asleep, but when she realised she was not moving, she ran out of the room crying. She rushed to my house and told me that her mother was dead.
“So, I went to the house and discovered that she was dead. We saw a rope tightened on her neck which made us believe that she was murdered.
“As her guardian, I was aware that they used to have altercations and I always intervened. She left five children, but four of the children were from a previous marriage, while a daughter belongs to the current husband.”
Kaduna Police Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Muhammad Jalige, was unreachable on the matter as at the time of filing this report.
KanyiDaily had reported how a Nigerian woman ran away with her husband’s properties after he lost his means of livelihood (job).
