A man in Jerin Duwatsu village in Zamfara, Mallam Umar has been arrested for slapping his wife to her death.
The incidence according to the village head, Magaji Hamidu, occurred when the deceased protested against the alleged perpetual injustice shown by the husband in favouring the senior wife on issues relating to matrimonial affairs.
The late Inno, according to sources, had always complained about the attitude of her husband who always personally fetched water for the senior wife who, though did not give birth to any child for him, often instructed the children of the late Inno to fetch water for her.
Malam Umar is blessed with 12 children from the late Inno through forty years of matrimonial life, while the senior wife had no issue. The village head however suggested that, the husband was probably provoked by the confrontational attitude of the late Inno and slapped her when she was openly venting her anger on him.
Slap of life!
