A 35-year-old man, Mohammed Manu, in Barusa village, in the New Bussa Local Government Area of Niger state was arrested by The Niger State Police Command for allegedly killing his wife, Bulo.
The command confirmed the arrest on Thursday, stating that a team of policemen attached to the New Bussa Police Division apprehended the suspect.
Manu, a father of five, was alleged to have killed Bulo for allegedly refusing him sex after several moves.
It was learnt that Bulo’s refusal to sleep with her husband resulted in her untimely death.
The suspect had previously warned his wife of the dangers of starving him of sex almost on a daily basis, accepting that he shot his wife with a pistol after she provoked him by constantly denying him sex.
Manu said, “I had warned my wife to stop denying me sex, which is the fundamental of any marriage; each time I demanded sex from her, she treated me like a leper, which I considered unacceptable.
“When I pressed further that day, she pushed me and I lost my temper and killed her. She was fond of giving excuses each time I wanted to make love to her.
