The suspects, identified as Adamu Alhaji Ibrahim, 31 years old, and Bukar Wadiya, 39 years old, both residents of Dikechiri, were apprehended after Adamu Alhaji Ibrahim went to the Gwange Division accompanied by Wadiya, seeking emergency help from the police.

Preliminary investigations by the police revealed a history of domestic disputes between the couple, allegedly stemming from suspicions of an extramarital affair by the husband.
