“After carrying out investigation, the Baale handed over the suspect to the police alongside the pot of soup.”

The suspect, who blamed his actions on the devil, said he was angry because the woman usually insulted him over electric bill.

“The woman has been insulting me over electricity bill. I don’t know what got over me so I decided to put sniper inside their soup to punish her. I am sorry. I regret what I have done. She insulted me so much because of the electricity bill if not I don’t have any problem with her and her husband,” he said.

A police officer at the Ajegunle police station , confirming the incident, said a case file had been opened and that the suspect will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti.
