Killer Husband Says Prophet Told Him To Murder Wife
A man, Ismail Yakubu, who murdered his wife has confessed that a Prophet advised himj to kill her.
According to reports, Ismail, of Araromi Ale-Olorunda Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, made the confession after he was arrested for butchering his wife, Mrs. Silifat Yakubu, popularly called Iya Lugo, and dumping her in a river in the neighbourhood.
According to an eyewitness, some of the victim’s body parts, such as her eyes, breasts and uterus, were allegedly missing when her corpse was found by passersby, suggesting that she must have been murdered for ritual purposes.
Ismail purportedly dumped the corpse of his wife in the river at night, after his attempts to take her far away failed because his bus developed a fault.
A neighbour, one Iya Korede, who lives near the victim’s shop, noted that Silifat was jovial, hardworking and troubled no one.
She also described the deceased as a trader who sold household utensils in her container shop, located a few blocks from hers.
Iya Korede reportedly said:
Most of the people in the area do not know her husband because he goes early to work and comes back late. But his wife is a very hard working woman. She built the house they live in.
As if that was not enough, she bought a commercial bus for him. What else does he want? If he was tired of the marriage, he should have driven her away instead of killing her.
The world is truly a wicked place. How can a man kill his own wife? The same woman who bore him three male children, for goodness sake? It is only God that will save us.
The Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, stated that the suspect was currently in police custody and had made confessional statements that he actually committed the crime while investigations into the matter continues.
