KADUNA — A 69-year-old man has been arrested by the Kaduna State Police Command for allegedly killing his wife.

The suspect was said to have killed his wife, Edna Albert,60, with a stick of firewood for allegedly tampering with N7,000 he gave to her to handover to their landlord at the Kudenda area of the state, weekend.

According to reliable police sources in Kaduna, the suspect gave the deceased the money to deliver to their landlord on October 1, but the woman spent N2,500 from the amount.

It was learnt that the suspect felt embarrassed several days later when the landlord approached him again for the money, leading the husband to call the attention of his wife to the development.

“The suspect killed Edna Albert, 60, for spending N2,500 he reportedly gave her for their landlord. He hit his wife with a stick of firewood.”
