Nicholas’ wife, identified as Mrs Adetsav allegedly killed him, their three children and then herself at their home on Vandeikya street, Makurdi after a heated argument.

“The man, Mr Nicholas Adetsav, a staff of Makurdi Local Government Council, and his children, were killed on Friday night in Makurdi. His wife, who we believe is responsible for the death of the quartet, also killed herself.
“From information available to us, the woman has been having issues with her husband which might have culminated into this,” Mr Moses Yamu, the Benue State Police Command’s spokesman, said on Saturday in Makurdi.
Yamu said that the couple, who lived at Vandeikya street, were both staff of Makurdi Local Government Council.
“They have been having issues; just yesterday (Friday), the woman was seen with a pestle trying to smash her husband’s car. No one knows the cause of their frequent fights.”
He said that Police personnel sent to the house found the man foaming in the mouth, the three kids already dead, while the woman, also dead, was found holding a knife in her hands.
“The incident happened around 8:30 p.m. on Friday; from what we have gathered, the couple fight on daily basis,” he said.
