A father-of-five has been arrested by the Niger state Police Command for killing his wife who he alleged constantly starved him of sex.
Muhammed Manu, 35, from Barusa village, New Bussa, Niger state, said his wife, Hassana Bulo, was in the habit of giving excuses each time he approached her for sex. He said she had no right to do that because it was his right and he regularly warned her of the consequences.
How can my wife refuse me making love to her, it is an abomination where I come from. She does not have the right to do that.
He confessed to shooting her dead because she provoked him several times and constantly declined whenever he demanded to have sex.
Time without number, I have been warning my wife to stop refusing me sex which is one of the fundamentals of any marriage, each time I demanded sex from she will treat me like a leper, which is unacceptable.
On this fateful day, when I pressed for sex further, she pushed me to the side and I lost my temper and killed her. She is always fond of giving excuses each time I want to make love to her.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Abubakar Muhammad confirmed the arrest saying the suspect was arrested on Thursday by a team of policemen attached to New Bussa Division.
The suspect has been charged to court.
