Pregnant woman allegedly kills husband over miniskirt

A quarrel between a man and his wife over a miniskirt that the wife was wearing has claimed the husband’s life, DAILY POST reports.

Trouble started one night when the man, Patrick John, returned home from a drinking joint and met his pregnant wife in a miniskirt, a piece of clothing that he had previously warned her against wearing.

The couple are residents of Faram Faram village in Fufore Local Government Area.

DAILY POST gathered on Monday that during a scuffle on June 13, 2024, the man challenged his wife over the miniskirt, allegedly holding her by the neck, prompting the wife to struggle and cry out.

Neighbours, who heard the commotion rushed in and separated them, but the man allegedly left the scene only to return and descend again on the wife.

The wife, identified as Maryam, was said to have picked up a hoe with which she hit her husband on the forehead, resulting in the man being taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Maryam, who was arraigned in court over the matter, is pleading self-defence.

At the Chief Magistrate Court 2 in Yola, presided over by Magistrate Musa Alhaji Adamu, Maryam attributed her action to a spontaneous move to protect herself.

The judge ordered her remand after her guilty plea to the alleged offence of culpable homicide and adjourned the matter to July 10, 2024.
