Usman Hammawa, 41, has been arrested by the Adamawa State Police Command for allegedly killing his 36-year-old wife over N1,000.
In response to Rabiyatu Usman’s demand that her husband return N1,000 she lent him, a fight ensued.
Adamawa State resident Usman Hammawa hit his late wife’s head against a wall by hitting her ward, Jada Ward, in Ganye Local Government Area, which rendered her unconscious.
Her death was confirmed at the hospital.
In response to complaints received from his late wife’s relatives, the police arrested the accused in Ganye LGA.
After 16 years of marriage, Usman, a civil servant with Ganye Local Government Area, had five children with the deceased.
DSP Suleiman Nguroje, the image maker for the State Police Command of Adamawa State, said CP Aliyu Adamu Alhaji put an end to the criminal’s escape by exposing him.
Nevertheless, he directed that discreet investigations be conducted and that the suspect be prosecuted as needed.
