A 26-year-old man identified as Aminu Inuwa of Unguwar Jakada in Kano, has been apprehended after he killed his 18-year-old wife for ‘being disobedient’ one month after their wedding.
The suspect who buried his wife Safara’u in the matrimonial home, was nabbed after he approached a neighbour with series of questions on how to bury a corpse and the Islamic injunction on whoever kills a human being.
Community leaders in the area who stormed the man’s house after the incident was reported, found blood-stained shovel and digger beside what appeared to be a grave.
However speaking to journalists, the man admitted killing his wife barely a month after their wedding for being disobedient. He further claimed it was accidental and not intentional.
“The reason is she was not obeying my directive. I really loved my wife as she equally loved me to the extent that I don’t want to live without her. The incident was accidental, not intentional,” he said.

“A 26-year-old man of Unguwar Jakada in Kano metropolis was reported to have slaughtered his 18-year-old wife, Safara’u Aminu, and dug a grave in the house and buried her.
