Umar Audu, a 21-year-old man, has been arrested for killing one Abubakar Mohammadu, his neighbour on the suspicion that the deceased was sleeping with his wife.
Umar said in an interview with Northern City News that he did not regret killing Muhammadu.
Umar said: “I don’t regret killing him because Mohammadu decided to die like a chicken. In his next life, he will not make advances to married women.
“I am ready to bear the consequences. Let the law take its course. I am fulfilled that Mohammadu will never see my wife again, Allah will judge him.”
Umar and Muhammadu, lived in Wawa village in New-Bussa, Borgu Local Government Area of Niger State.
It was learnt that sometime last May, the suspect’s wife, Hassan Audu, reported to him that Mohammadu was disturbing her for an amorous relationship, which she turned down.
It was gathered that the suspect had warned the neighbour on several occasions to desist from making advances to his wife but he reportedly ignored the warnings.
The command confirmed the suspect’s arrest on Tuesday, stating that a team of policemen attached to the New-Bussa Division apprehended him over Mohammadu’s murder.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammad Abubakar, said that the matter would be charged to court after investigations.
