The Niger State Police Command has arrested a 35-year-old man, Mohammed Manu, for allegedly killing his wife, Bulo, in Barusa village, in the New Bussa Local Government Area of the state.
The command confirmed the arrest on Thursday, stating that a team of policemen attached to the New Bussa Police Division apprehended the suspect.
It was gathered that the suspect had previously warned his wife of the dangers of starving him of sex almost on a daily basis.
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.
“How can my wife refuse my sex advances? It is an abomination where I come from; she did not have the right to do that.”
The police said Manu had been charged to court.
