A source familiar with the incident told WikkiTimes the husband, after “killing” his wife in their residence near Stadium, took a sniper, an insecticide, in an attempt to commit suicide. He was rushed to Suleja General Hospital, but he later died, according to the source.

According to a local press in Suleja, neigbours noticed an unusual silence around the couple’s house on the day of the incident. After several knocks at their door, Chioma’s sister who came visiting peeked through the kitchen window and found Gloria’s lifeless body next to her husband’s with a sniper.
The deceased, a mother of one, was also said to have sustained bruises and injuries as a pillow was found atop her face.
