Probably she felt her husband is worth that unbelievably low amount so he hired a low-budget assassin to do the dirty job. This was not actually the initial amount. It was a upfront payment but even the total package for this dirty job which this woman was willing to part with makes the story more hilarious.
A housewife has been arrested for hiring a man to assassinate her husband in Yola, Nigeria.
The woman, Hauwa Audu, a resident of Michika local government area, hired the services of one Kwaji Tizhe, for N100, 000 (about $1.60), to kill her husband, James Tizhe, and made an initial deposit of N7,000.
Mrs. Audu currently in prison custody in Yola, for alleged attempted murder was arraigned before the Chief Magistrate Court I, for “ attempt to commit culpable homicide,” Leadership reported.
According to the prosecutor, ASP Francis Audu, the defendant hatched a plot to eliminate her husband, James Tizhe and two others that include Maryamu Bugi and Bugi Walla.
The defendant was said to have accused Maryamu Bugi and Bugi Walla of murdering her daughter-in-law through witchcraft as a result of which she decided to take a revenge.
Upon her arraignment in court, the defendant denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty. It was after she entered her plea that the prosecution applied for an adjournment to enable him to duplicate the case file and send the same to DPP for vetting considering the nature of the alleged offence.
In his ruling, Chief Magistrate Mohammed Buba, ordered the remand of the defendant and subsequently adjourned the matter to July 14, 2022.
