As reported by Channels Television, the police command has concluded the trial of Shagari for domestic violence.

The injured wife said she only has issues with her husband only when he is drunk. Hauwa said she usually locks him up and makes him sleep anytime he gets drunk and starts misbehaving.

Narrating how her husband cut off her hand, she said:

“That day, I was trying to do the same thing so that he would enter and go and sleep. However, I was not aware that he was holding a sharp cutlass, and that was how he cut my hand. He has never beaten me before. Only that we argue from time to time.”

The policeman was said to have attacked his wife for spending N3,000 out of the N20,000 he kept with her for safekeeping, Nigerian Tribune reports.

The incident happened in the Jos South local government area on Monday, April 29.
