Why I Killed Her; Man Who Stabbed Wife To Death Over N2,000 Feeding Allowance In Kogi

By Olatunde Odimayo.

A 30 year old man, Abdullahi Garba from Ihima in Okehi Local Government of Kogi State said the current economic hardship in the state is what drove him to stab his wife to death.

Garba was paraded alongside 12 other suspects by Kogi State police command in Lokoja on Wednesday for alleged culpable homicide, armed robbery, kidnapping and illegal possession of fire arms.

The sad story was said to have started when a heated argument ensued between Abdullahi Garba and his wife, Falilat Saka Garba who demanded for N2000 for the day’s meal.

“When I came back from work that day, Falilat demanded for N2000. I told her that I only have N500, which is the amount we are using to feed at the moment, but she was not satisfied, and thereafter, argument broke out between us”, he said.

The accused, who claimed he had never had a taste of alcohol and was not under the influence of hard drugs, admitted to have stabbed the deceased believing it was the handiwork of the devil. Garba said he regretted his actions noting that this was the first time he got physical with his wife.

He recalled how his deceased wife once admonished him to engage in armed robbery as a result of the unbearable hardship rocking the family.

According to Garba; “It got to a point when my wife told me to engage in robbery but I refused. She told me that my condition was not better than that of those stealing people’s belongings. I told her that in my family we don’t take things that is not ours”.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Yahaya Abubakar who paraded the suspects explained that on the 30th of May 2017, a detective from the homicide section of Okehi Police Division arrested Abdullahi Garba after he admitted to have stabbed his deceased wife, Falilat.

The police chief said Garba will be arraigned in court for persecution as soon as the result of the post-mortem examination is received.

Another suspect Eshie Sule and two others were also nabbed with single and double barrel guns, a barrette pistol and live cartridges which Sule claimed he inherited from his late father.

According to DCP Yahaya, the link between the Police and the local vigilante has helped to reduce criminal activities in the state. He assured that all the suspects paraded will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.

He reiterated the command’s determination to prevent crime and ensure public safety in Kogi state.
