I killed my husband because he stopped me from wearing miniskirts – Pregnant wife

A heartbreaking incident occurred in Faram Faram village in Fufore Local Government Area of Adamawa State when a quarrel between a man and his pregnant wife over a miniskirt led to a fatal outcome for the husband.

Patrick John, the man involved, returned home one night from a drinking joint and found his wife in a miniskirt, despite previously warning her against wearing it.

The disagreement escalated on June 13, 2024, when the man confronted his wife about the clothing, leading to a physical altercation where he allegedly grabbed her by the neck.

Neighbours intervened to separate them, but the situation worsened when the man reportedly returned to confront his wife again.
