A statement by police spokesman Bala Elkana said the suspect allegedly killed his wife, a mother of 3, after a minor quarrel in their home, which snowballed into a fight.
“Later, the suspect at midnight cut her remains into pieces, packed them in two sacks, put them in a wheelbarrow and poured them into a waste bin near NDLEA’s office, off Nwaniba Road, Uyo.
“The suspect killed his wife in the presence of their children, who thereafter reported to the police, for fear of being murdered by their father. During interrogation, he confessed to the crime.
“Investigation is on. The suspect will be arraigned for murder,” the police statement added.
