A 30-year-old farmer, Danjuma Bisalla, charged with hacking his wife to death in Niger State has pleaded guilty to the offence.

The police charged Bisalla before a chief magistrate court in Minna, the state capital,  with culpable homicide, contrary to Section 221 of the Penal Code.

The police prosecutor, Sgt. Bello Mohammed, told the court that the defendant, a resident of Uddu Village in Rijau LGA of the state, was arrested on April 11.

Mohammed said the defendant allegedly hacked his wife to death without any provocation.

When the charge was read to Bisalla, he pleaded guilty and told the court he was not in his right senses when he committed the act.

The judge, Hauwa Yusuf, however, declined to take his plea on the grounds that her court lacked jurisdiction to hear the matter and ordered that he be remanded in prison custody.

Yusuf also ordered the police to forward the case file to the State Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.

She adjourned the matter until May 21. (NAN)
