According to the report, Garuba has been arrested for allegedly stabbing his wife to death.

Garuba was among 13 suspects paraded on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 in Lokoja by the Kogi State Police Command.

Garuba, who said he had been married to his late wife, Falilat Saka, for the past 15 years, said they had been having argument over money.

“On that day, she requested N4,000, but I gave her N2,000, which did not go down well with her. This led to an argument and in the process, I stabbed her and she died from the injury sustained in her neck region,” Abdulahi said.

The state Deputy Commissioner of Police, Yahaya Abubakar, who paraded the suspect, said he would be arraigned in court as soon as the result of the post-mortem examination was received.
