The Today Nigeria news website reported on Friday that it was informed by a community source that the wife’s remains were discovered last Saturday in a shallow grave in the couple’s kitchen.

“The man was apprehended. He confessed to the crime and took the locals and security operatives to the kitchen, where he buried the deceased,” the source was quoted saying.
Police spokesman Asinim Butswat said the suspect confessed to the crime and was being detained for further interrogation.
