A 20-year-old man is being held by police after allegedly beating his wife to death over food.
According to the Niger State Police Command, the two of them had a misunderstanding, which resulted in a serious fight.
During the course of their fight, the man identified as Danladi became enraged and beat her into a coma.
She was rushed to the hospital, where she died a few minutes later.
After his arrest, the deceased, identified as Zulai Lawal, told police that he had no idea his actions would result in his wife’s death.
Narrating what triggered the fight, he told the police that he didn’t like the food she prepared and that led to the start of the fight in the first place.
Danlandi said: “I never knew she would die. It was just a misunderstanding over mere pap and I did not know that when she fainted, she would not wake up. I should never have beaten her. I regret my action“
