Today in Zamfara State, the Nigeria Police Force confirmed that they have arrested one 25-year-old man, Aminu Bala, for allegedly raping and killing his elder brother’s wife in Gusau.
This was said by Sp Mohammed Shehu, the spokesperson of the police command, when he paraded the suspect, he also confirmed that the suspect had already confessed to the crime.
On how he was apprehended, the spokesperson said that Tudun Wada Area Command, Gusau, at about 04.30 hours, received a distress call from Damba quarters of Gusau metropolis, a suspect had killed his brother’s wife.
The police quickly arrived at the scene only to discover the victim, Hauwa’u Iliyasu in the pool of her own blood, having suffered from multiple machete cuts.
She was immediately rushed to the hospital, where she was confirmed dead. He further said the command has informed the husband, who was said to be away.
Recall that not too long along, an 100 level Microbiology student of the University of Benin, was raped and killed inside the Church. Residents protested, demanding that the perpetrators should be apprehended, and brought to justice.
Also almost the same time, another case was also reported in Ibadan, with the victim also killed.
Although Nigerian Governors have agreed to strengthen measures, in handling rape cases in their various states, many Nigerians want the Governors to match their words with actions.
Since the death sentence will not be totally acceptable, stiffer laws should be enacted to punish offenders, in order to serve as deterrent to others.
