The Adamawa State Police Command, on Saturday, apprehended a 56-year-old man, Aminu Abubakar, for allegedly beating his 38-year-old estranged wife to death.

The suspect, a resident of Lelewaji, Shagari Phase 2, in the Yola South Local Government Area of the state, had allegedly murdered Nana Fadimatu, a day before her wedding to her new suitor.

According to the police findings, the suspect had been involved in a long marital conflict with the deceased.

NAIJA LIVE TV also learnt the duo had both agreed to separate.

Abubakar was, however, said to have suddenly become jealous after he learnt that his estranged wife who he was still accommodating in his house, would be getting married to one Mahmud Rufai.


He was said to have hit her with a pestle.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Nguroje, said, “Angered by the information that Nana was going to marry a new husband, the suspect engaged her on May 5, 2023, around 10pm, applied force on her by hitting her with a hard object as a result of which she fell unconscious and was later pronounced dead.”

Nguroje said the suspect, who has been arrested, would be prosecuted after diligent prosecution.
