A man is on the run after his wife allegedly died from strangulation in their one room apartment.

The man, a security guard identified simply as Nuhu, in Mahuta, Igabi Local Government area of Kaduna has disappeared after his wife was found dead in their single room apartment, according to a report by The Nation.

The relations of the woman have accused the husband of being behind her death.
It was gathered that the incident happened on Tuesday at the house where Nuhu works as a security guard.
It was also gathered that the relations of the deceased came from Plateau State over the issue.
The husband and his late wife shared the same room in the uncompleted building while their daughters lived in a different room.
The cause of her death is still a mystery, but her relations are pointing accusing finger at the husband alleging “he ran away.”
Malam Mohammed Bashir, who claimed to be a guardian to the late mother of five, said the husband was at large.

According to him;
“All his personal belongings were removed from the room. ‎We suspect him because they slept together in the room but when his wife’s body was found, he was nowhere to be found.
“Her daughter discovered the lifeless body inside the one-apartment room where they were squatting with the husband.

“She tried to wake the mother up thinking she was still asleep, but when she realised she was not moving she ran out of the room crying.
“She rushed to my house and told me that her mother was dead. So, I went to the house and discovered that she was dead. We saw a rope tightened on her neck which made us believe that she was murdered,” he said.

“As her guardian, I was aware that they used to have altercations and I always intervened. She left five children but four of the children were from a previous marriage while a daughter belongs to the current husband,” he said.
Kaduna Police Command Public Relations Officer, ASP Muhammad Jalige, is yet to be reached on the matter.
