The Commissioner of Police in the state, Alhaji Adamu Usman, who disclosed this to newsmen on Monday, said the suspect had a misunderstanding with her husband, Sani Umaru, on April 23 which resulted in a divorce.
He said: “The suspect alleged that her mother-in-law, Aishatu Umaru, 70 of Tozon Daji village instigated her son to divorce her.
“It was based on this assumption that the suspect traced the mother-in-law to her village and stabbed her to death.”
Usman said the case is under investigation and the suspect would soon be charged to court.
