Ex-husband identifies woman beheaded in Adamawa hotel


A woman whose dead body was found in a hotel in Yola, the capital of Adamawa State, has been identified by her former husband.

A suspected ritual killer had taken the said woman to the hotel, now identified as Happy Day Guest Inn, beheaded her and sneaked out of the hotel with the head.

The ex-husband of the deceased, Auwal Garba, confirmed to the Adamawa State Police Command Friday evening that the deceased, Bilkisu Idi, who was murdered at the Happy Day Guest Inn on Thursday, January 18, was his wife until last month.

According to the Adamawa State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Suleiman Nguroje, who provided the update on the incident, Auwal Garba had volunteered the information that Bilkisu was his wife, whom he had married about six years ago.

Garba allegedly added that the marriage, which was blessed with a child, ended in December 2023 when he divorced her.


He said the deceased even called him on the day she was killed, asking to talk to her child, but he told her the child was with his grandmother.
