A housewife, Hauwa Audu, has been arrested for hiring an assassin to kill her husband in Yola.

Hauwa, a resident of Michika local government area, hired the services of one Kwaji Tizhe, for N100, 000, to kill her husband, James Tizhe, and made an initial deposit of N7,000.

Mrs Audu, who is currently in prison custody in Yola, was arraigned before the Chief Magistrate Court I, for “ attempt to commit culpable homicide”.

According to the prosecutor, ASP Francis Audu, the defendant hatched a plot to eliminate her husband, James Tizhe, and two others identified as Maryamu Bugi and Bugi Walla.


The prosecutor intimated the court that the defendant gave a cash deposit of N7, 000, to the assassin out of the sum of N100, 000 she had promised to pay after killing those she had penciled down.

The hired killer collected the cash deposit on June 3, 2022, and reported himself to the police.

It was gathered that Hauwa paid the money to Kwaji, to consult a native doctor on her behalf to inflict paralysis on her husband, but not to kill him.

She reportedly confessed that she took the action because of the husband’s failure to treat her as his wife and properly take care of her.


She alleged that her husband has not shared the same bed with her for the past nine years.

The defendant was said to have accused Maryamu Bugi and Bugi Walla of murdering her daughter-in-law through witchcraft as a result of which she decided to take a revenge.

Upon her arraignment in court, the defendant denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty.

Following her plea, the prosecution applied for an adjournment to enable him to duplicate the case file and send the same to the DPP for vetting, considering the nature of the alleged offense.


In his ruling, Chief Magistrate Mohammed Buba, ordered the remand of the defendant and subsequently adjourned the matter to July 14, 2022.
