37-Year-Old Man Beats 45-Year-Old Wife He Inherited From His Elder Brother To Death, Sets Himself Ablaze

A 37-year-old man identified as Shaibu Buba, has been arrested for allegedly killing the wife he inherited from his late elder brother.  Buba beat the victim, Satina Buba, 45, to death with a club as she was sleeping around 4.30am on November 16, 2017. Satina had four children for the late husband, Danladi, who died in 2016. 

In keeping with the tradition of their community, Shaibu inherited Satina after performing the traditional marital rites in February this year and began living with her in Kuruduma II, Asokoro Extension, Abuja.
Then somehow, he heard that she was having an affair with another man. Rather than investigate to ascertain the truth, the Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Sadiq Bello, said Shaibu decided to murder her. 
When he realized the gravity of what he had done, he rushed into the kitchen and he attempted to commit suicide. He poured kerosene on parts of his body and set himself ablaze, and then rushed to Asokoro Police Station and reported himself. 
Speaking with newsmen, Shaibu said: “I have regretted the devilish act I committed. I want my wife’s family to forgive me. I know that I will face the consequence.”
