Man shot to death at home. His pregnant wife arrested for his murder

Hadiza Afegbua, (pictured above right) yesterday December 28th, was arrested by police at Utako Division, Abuja, for the murder of her husband, Ibrahim Abutu, (pictured above with their child).

Ibrahim was killed in the Parakou Crescent home he shared with Hadiza and their child at Wuse II, Abuja, yesterday morning.

When police arrived at the couple's residence, Hadiza told them she was in the kitchen when she heard a gun shot and rushed towards the direction, only to find her husband shot. She and a few neighbors rushed him to the hospital where he eventually died.

Then the man's family went to police with their story. Continue reading.



 
According to the family of late Ibrahim Abudu, Hadiza allegedly used a double barrel gun in shooting her husband in cold blood, supposedly over his plans to marry a second wife. He's Muslim.


The police recovered a gun from the scene of the incident and an autopsy will be carried out on the corpse in order to unravel the cause of his death.

Hadiza is still in police custody while investigations are ongoing.

Will bring you update...

Probably he was well to do and the man's family just want to get her out of the way to claim his properties. You don't know what some people can do. It may not have been her who killed her husband.

i fink the police shuld conduct a thorough investigation on this..carry out autopsy on the corpse, finger print on the gun..ask ques around...get the trurth out..

Anonymous said...

you have 24-48 hrs to do a GSR(Gun shot residue) test on her its similar to finger printing and is standard procedure if her siblings think she isn`t guilty they should be shouting for one now as it will totally absolve her. Remember her prints might turn up on the gun if it belonged to the household it could be from last week or last month or the day the Man bought it and was showing it off to his wife as most guys would (in fact if he had teen kids i expect their prints on the Gun too) as kids would always find and play with such things in the house. A GSR test would tell if you shot a gun except she had on the right type of gloves which isn`t easy to buy.

Smh....RIP......I wonder why a gun ll be found at d crime scene if he was actually shot by an outsider....

Anonymous said...

are u freakn kidding me, an autopsy?! He was bloody shot, what other findings do u need? What they need to do is obtain the finger prints on that gun!

Anonymous said...

Her prints will always be on the gun. Cos she might have mved it around wile cleaning the house.

Sorry friends....this is not a CSI script...lol

The police better be sure they have the right person in custody. You don't want to further victimize the widow. Besides most in-laws do have the tendency of such accusations.

If she is an Ibo woman, then be rest assured that she murdered that man for his money.

It is normal, the wife needs to be quizzed.She is the first suspect so to say to tell exactly what happened. It is from the wife the police will know if the husband is owing some people or if there had been threat from outsiders.The police didnt say she killed the husband.

She was obviously set up. This is horrible. Naija and their wuruwuru investigation. So many innocent people sitting in jails for crimes they didnt commit. May the man RIP and may God vindicate this poor lady

She was fighting a lost battle. Her late husband already had a child with the new wife and only married her officially a couple of days back. Hadiza heard and this is the story today.. If there is anything life has taught me from your story woman, it is self control. The man would not have shot himself at the back of the head with a double barrelled gun people....

Heard this yesterday and goodness me i didt know that i know the chap.Oh my God is it possible to kill yourself with a double barell gun?

Man_eater said...

So what has a murder dt took place in wuse 2 have to do wit Utako police station? That utako police station is very notorious. If d family wants 2 get to d root of dis, they shud transfer d case to Force CID Area 10 Garki. Because those guys at utako will jst collect money and look d other way. So, if d wife is being accused wrongly, dts d perfect place to victimise and ensure she doesn't see d light of day and vice versa.
My advice is, madam get a good lawyer, preferrably Keyamo. His office is in zone 1. Make sure d law runs its course. Becos left 2 dose guys at Utako they're bunch of criminals themselves.

Anonymous said...

It's quite unlikely that a woman will kill the father of her children over another woman. The more likely crime would be the woman killing the new woman. However, this Hadiza lady might have underlying psychological issues beyond the norm.

This story is lacking many important details. Why did the killer leave the gun on the scene? Was there a break-in? Protracted quarreling? How did the man's family come up with their version of the story? Do they have a witness or are they just "guessing"?

Unfortunately, the Nigerian police will most likely listen to the side with the most money. Sad story oh!

Psssst. Its the party that has the most influence that will win this case. The Gun? useless. I'm sure the fingerprints on that gun will be up to a hundred - including all the cops in the station. Autopsy? Wont help. The police are incapable of interpreting the information. Ballistics? Worthless. No lab. Investigation? An exercise in extortion.

as a muslim woman, expect ur husband to marry another wife anytime . Hadiza, did u really di it? why? i am so sad for all the parties involved.

Gbenga; i have said it before that you should fuck off to Naira Land. It's for tribalists like you. You are such an illiterate that you didn't even read the the first two words of the story. Who gave you access to technology please? Faceless racists like you should be banned from using it. What have Ibo people done to you? Move on from your tribalistic hate filled no-brain.
LI, i blame you for publishing Gbenga's comments all the time attacking Ibos. You shouldn't give this racist an audience at all.

Most rich people in Nigeria live primitive lifestyle.There are so many gadgets out there in the market that can record real time events.why can't this dead man spend little money on close circuit television.This would have shown anyone entering or leaving the compound.He can spend as little as £70 (seventy pounds)on voice recorder hidden somewhere in the room.This records for weeks.

Its sad that she killed him for me. Hope she eats his corpse.May Allah give us Justice

chichiluv said...

People, you give Gbenga credit by acknowledging his asinine statements. If you ignore him, if he doesn't have an audience, he will slink away into the dark where he came from with his separatist comments.

Why would this woman murder her husband? If this happened in the US or UK, I would say it was for the life insurance policy but for Naija? Wetin she go get in a country where the man's family can quickly through her out of the house? In a country where women have no recourse?

Something is funny

Stop minding Gbenga people. He's not a yoruba man. And if u like u can email him. His email add is on the post giving away free tickets.

This is ridiculous! The family of the man must be after his property and from the autopsy report, he was shot on the left chest №t from the back. He probably killed himself! Why would a wife who has been asking God to bless her with a second child after more than six years of delivering her first child kill her husband??? The police should investigate her relationship with her in-laws. Something is fishy here!

How can a woman kill her own husband! Lai lai, me I no believe am

Anonymous said...

Ibro couldn't have killed himself....its not possible. we all knew Hadiza has never liked Ibro getting close to any woman...she knew ibro had a lady outside and also knew when the baby was born...then she taught it won't lead to an official marriage, which later happened some days ago before his death.
Ibro is a muslim and Hadiza knows that,as she is a muslim too. How can he shoot himself with a long gun...how?

personally, i dont think the wife could be so foolish to have shot her husband.she is the wife, she has the opportunity of poisoning his food without anyone suspecting. so she shot her husband, dropped the gun and called the neighbours abi? no, she couldnt be so dump.i guess she has issues with the family.and if the story of the second wife is true, then there is something wrong with the guy. beautiful young pregnant wife with a sweet handsome little son?hmmmmmm, we women have suffered big time oooo.

lmao @gbnega. the guy is a nut case...funny thing is he does not have any issues with igbo men, just their women...funny dude. The igbo woman who stole his money and broke his heart has left him permanently scarred... About the story. I dont know, it seems fishy kind oF. The woman may have been set up but at the same time hell hath seen no fury like a woman scorned so she may just have lost it after her husband not only impregnated the young chick but had the audacity to marry her. CouLD make any woman go crazy especially if the woman was there for the man when he was nothing but still to kill? this story is just sad and full of holes

A man is presumed innocent until proved guilty. Kindly let us allow justice to prevail after investigation. Situations like this are always very deep and usually deeper than we think. I hope the Nigerian Police can unravel this, though i doubt it, as celebrity cases are never solved, therefore , how can we expect that of these nobodies.

Did the gun belong to the man!

Who knows if there was a disgruntled boyfriend somewhere who after hearing his girlfriend had just married another man got mad and shot him.

Some men a so thoughtless, young pretty wife and you go looking for another woman. Yeah you are Muslim but does Islam preach promiscuity?

Sure there is freedom of speech, info n whteva the law permits.
To be candid, nigerian police are hadworking n resourcefull. In a few days, i'm sure they'll have the truth.
Now, will they actually reveal the truth, trade it for money from the highest bidder n even robe an innocent; probly a neighbour, friend,buz associate or even a family member.
Hope ab order doesn't come from above this time.

Here's the reality on the situation at hand. Wife is murdered in the house and the husband is proclaimed guilty even before he gets to court. Husband is shot with a double barrel gun and wife is innocent (according to most of the comments here). My people fear God. A life is a life. Who do you think would be the 1st suspect? Me. Its always the person closest to the deceased. According to the the little i know about situations like this, the question is did she have 'Probable Cause'? She did if the stories are to be believed. She should get a good lawyer, if not she should prepare for jail. As for the family, there are victims here. If it was your brother, Half of us would do the same; regardless he was rich or poor. People should learn to judge cases based on the merit of the case and stop attaching stupid sentiments.

Dear all,
I am shock the nigeria police could hold a pregnant women for more than a month without evidence." remember innocent until proven guilty" I believe the police force based their arrest on ear say possibly from the mans family. I am a computer forensic student and I can verify that anything could have happened to that gun.1. On the process of loading the gun it can go off, 2.on the process of cleaning a loaded gun it can go off. Y'all be very careful in destroying an innocent woman name, as far as I am concern, thorough investigation hasnt been conducted yet.

Anonymous said...

I am sure the deceased family are interested in his properties, come to think of it, why are they running to the press everyday to publish stories that are untrue? from all indication they want to get the woman out of the way to claim his properties. They know she didnt kill him, they just want to get her out of the way.

God punish the inlaw. they are bloody liars. its so obvious they want the property.speaking from experience,theres no lie under the earth they have not told about me especially the young girls who are too old and wicked to get a suitor so they unleash it on me.my husband is alive and its this bad. crazy liars thats hw wicked these in law are.pls release the innocent woman to mourn her husband and take care of her kids.God go punish bad people.
