Tragedy In Kaduna, As Wife Sets Senator's Aide Ablaze
[Guardian Ng] TRAGEDY struck Friday in Kaduna following the murder of a legislative aide to a National Assembly member, representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Mallam Mohammed Ibrahim Matazu by his wife.

Matazu, who was set ablaze by his wife, died at the Ahmadu Bello Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Shika.

The deceased, an aide to Senator Mohammed Saleh, was said to be preparing to travel to Kaduna to represent his boss at a function organized by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) when his second wife sprayed him with petrol and set him ablaze at his residence in Gwarinpa, Abuja.

His death threw several people in Kaduna metropolis into mourning. Matazu was a former staff of the Federal Radio Corporation (FRCN) and Nagata Radio.

According to the deceased's younger brother, Alhaji Magaji Ibrahim, neighbours confirmed the incident, saying they were the ones that called the police to arrest the Matazu's wife.

"It happened in Gwarinpa, Abuja. He was later rushed to Zone 3, Wuse hospital. But according to the doctor's report, 77 percent of his body was severely burnt. He later died at Ahmadu Bello Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Shika, Zaria."

Narrating the ordeal that befell Mallam Mutazu, Alhaji Ibrahim said, Mutazu's offence, according to the wife, seem to be due to his penchant for "over-staying with the first wife in Kaduna."
This, my dears, is why monogamy is a much better idea for the husband than polygamy, despite all the stories of sexy harem girls in see-through pantaloons.
"But my brother was always in Kaduna because of the assignment the Senator gave him to do, that is, digging of boreholes. So he used to spend 10 days before going back to Abuja. He was going round the seven local governments to supervise the boreholes being sunk by the Senator.
