The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP Abdul Jinjiri, confirmed the incident, saying that the suspect was arrested after the police received the report from the deceased relatives.

DSP Jinjiri revealed that the report the police had was that Juli had a quarrel with his wife, who later dragged him to court for lack of care and not fulfilling his matrimonial responsibility.

Withe hearing fixed for January 19, Juli and his friend, Muhammad, decided to approach the wife for an out of court settlement and in the process, they murdered her with knives, cutlasses and machetes.

“When they approached the wife at her parent’s house, she turned down their request. As a result of that, they decided to descend on her by using cutlass and knife to machete her which included chopping off her hand

In this process, her relatives heard her shouting for help and before they could come to her rescue, the suspects had already perpetuated their evil plan and ran away.”

Jinjiri added that the police had rushed the young woman to the Kafin-Hausa General Hospital where she died later.
