This is contained in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, SP Suleiman Nguroje, on Saturday in Yola.

He said the suspect was apprehended by the police on Friday following a report received from a relative of the deceased.

“The suspect, Caroline Barka, a resident of Angwan Tamiya, Madagali Local Government Area, engaged her late husband, Barka Dauda, in a fight following an argument that ensued between them after the deceased returned home drunk and fell on their one-year-old baby who was in bed.

“Angered by his drunkenness, habitual late nights and failure to provide basic necessities as a husband, the suspect and the deceased engaged themselves in a fight which resulted in her stabbing the husband.

“As a result, he fell down unconscious and was later rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead,” Nguroje stated.

According to him, the investigation so far revealed that the suspect, a nursing mother, had a child with the deceased after two years of marriage.

“The Commissioner of Police, CP Sikiru Akande, directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police Investigation to take over the case and ensure that the suspect is prosecuted accordingly,” he stated.

Meanwhile, DCP Akande has called on the public to always report people of suspicious character around their neighbourhoods to the police authority nearest to them.

He said that would help in tackling criminal activities and other related offences in the state.
