One Abdulahi Garuba has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his wife to death in Kogi.

The 30 year old was said to have committed at Ihima in Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi state.

Explaining what led to the murder, the accused said he had been married to his wife Falilat Saka, for 15 years and have constantly been having arguments over money – his wife always complains saying the money for food is not enough.

His words;

“On the particular day, she requested for N4,000 but I only managed to give her N 2,000 which did not go down well with her. This led to arguments and in the process, I stabbed her and she died from the injury sustained in her neck region”Abdulahi told journalists.”

He was paraded yesterday in Lokoja by the Kogi state police command and will be arraigned as soon as the result of the post-mortem examination is received, the DCP said.
