A man, Mohammed Manu, has allegedly shot his wife to death for refusing to have sex wit him.
The 32-year-old father of five was arrested by men of the Niger State Police Command on Thursday in Barusa village in the New Bussa Local Government Area of the state.
Manu was said to have warned Bulo several times over her constant refusal to give him sex. He confessed to have shot her with a pistol after getting frustrated.
“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,” Punch Metro quoted him to have said.
The police said Manu had been charged to court.
