A 35-year-old, man, Jubrin has stabbed the Chief Imam of Enagi town, Alhaji Attahiru Alhassan, to death for allegedly having sex with his second wife.
Jubrin was said to have caught the Chief Imam, 48 years and his wife in bed at a neighbour’s house.
Jubrin who was paraded at the police headquarters in Minna, the state capital, on Tuesday, narrated the events that took place shortly before he killed the chief Imam.
According to him, the imam walked past him into a neighbour’s house, where his wife had earlier gone into on the pretext that she was going to the toilet but when he did not see her after about an hour, he decided to go search for her.
He subsequently heard her voice in the neighbour’s house.
Jubril said, “I entered and met the Chief Imam naked on the bed with my wife. They were sleeping together. I didn’t do anything, I left them and went to my brother’s house to report what I saw.”
Jubrin who stated that he left without doing anything, however, explained that things got out of hand when the Chief Imam called him for a dialogue over the matter.
“During the discussion, things became heated, we argued with each other and I forcefully collected the iron rod with Alhaji Alhassan and stabbed him on the neck.”
Jubrin fled the scene at the death of the Imam but was later apprehended at Batati village in Lavun local government area of the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Wasiu Abiodun who briefed reporters on the incident, said the suspect confessed he killed the Imam out of anger.
According to him, investigation had commenced into the incident, and that the suspect will be arraigned in court soon.
