Arugo revealed that trouble started went to his village, married a wife and brought her to live with him. The suspect said that his lover-landlady was angry with him because he got married and brought his wife into the house.
He said: “I am here because I committed a crime. I am 29 years old. I did it unknowingly and I never knew it will be like this. It is my landlady whom I am dating in Aluu Community that I killed. When I went to my village and married, I brought my wife to the yard and my landlady started quarrelling me. She said why will I marry without informing her. I started having problem with her because of my wife. I did not let my wife know about it. The last time we had problem was in the night. As we were quarrelling I used pestle and hit her head, she fell down and died.”
