  1. If you kill him, what do you think that will happen to their daughter?.

  2. Are the police thinking of the only child at all? How can she lose both parents tragically. I also understand she died in the hospital, so it was not a case of strangulation. Doctors in the house what do you think?

    • Did he think of the only Child when he battered her to death? Allow the Law to take its course. The Child will b better off with such a father. Its so sad n fatal sometimes when love turn sour.

    • @ Omadovie, Ma someone carelessly killed my little naphew and my brothers only son in January. As a family we felt so bad, i particularly felt like locking up the person for life and throwing away the key in the sea. But we noticed the person honestly felt remorsful so we let it go. Sometimes it may not be the best to seek the full pond of flesh. Wether we like it or not, some times the judges do put some things into consideration when presiding over a case. What the man did is condemnable however, autopsy result said she died as a result of resporatory siesure. A lot things can lead to resporatory siesure which includes asthma, chronic nasal inflamation and other resporatory related problems. It can be triggered when there is a struggle or when you wrestle. I had nasal inflametory desease and i know how i used to feel when i struggle with someone. From my experience we can not conclude that she was strangulated. Let the Doctors guide us sha.

  3. He should not be killed and let them live the judgement for God.they not put those kids in orphanage life because of God.it has happen.

  4. Did he consider the children when he killed their mum?

  5. The book of life said that if you kill by sword you will die by sword.

  6. @Umar Hassan Dandango, I would’ve been surprised if you had said otherwise, Una people like spilling of blood sha.That said, the accused, should face the music for his actions.

  7. The husband who never think of his children b4 he killed their mother.If freed or released, with his uncheked anger, he can still kill the children. Let him face the law.

  8. Men should learn to exercise restraint in handling issues with women to avoid “had I known”what will be the faith of the children left behind, God will intervene.

  9. Men learn how to handle woman when angry you can just walk away before u comes back u forget everything

  10. I once commented that he lied, by saying he didn’t know what happened to d wife, he killed his wife, mother of two kids, why? Whatever she might ave done, you would ave send her packing and not killing, gosh this is not encouraging, he should also face d judgement, shikena
