Jubrin was paraded at the police headquarters in Minna, the state capital, on Tuesday, where he narrated what transpired on the day he caught the Imam and his wife together.

He added that the deceased walked past him into a neighbour’s house, where his wife had earlier told him she was going to a toilet behind the compound.

He explained that when he did not see his wife after about an hour, he decided to go searching for her and he heard her voice in the neighbour’s house.

“I entered and met the Chief Imam naked on the bed with my wife. They were sleeping together. I didn’t do anything, I left them and went to my brother’s house to report what I saw,” he said.

Jubrin further explained that he became aggravated when the Chief Imam called him for a dialogue over the incident.

“During the discussion, things became heated, we argued with each other and I forcefully collected the iron rod with Alhaji Alhassan and stabbed him on the neck.”

The Federal Ministry of Interior has warned that ”ghost marriages” are illegal and any Federal Registrar found to have violated the law with regards to registration of marriages, shall be punished.

A ”ghost marriage”, is a marriage in which one or both parties are deceased.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Director of Citizenship and Business Department, Mrs Moremi Soyinka-Onijala, on Wednesday in response to speculations that marriage certificates were being obtained from the federal registries, in the absence of intending couples.

Responding on behalf of the Permanent Secretary, Soyinka-Onijala explained that it is absolutely compulsory for intending couples to be present before any marriage can be registered or certificates issued.

Citing some provisions of the Marriage Act, she said that sections 44 provides that “whoever impersonates any other person in marriage, or marries under a false name or description, with intent to deceive the other party to the marriage, shall be liable to imprisonment for five years”

It is an important requirement for intending couples to be physically present at any Registry (Federal or not) or at any Licensed Public Place of Worship in order to be married under the provisions of the Marriage Act of 1990 Cap 218 LFN as amended.
