Security agents were said to have evacuated the corpses to an undisclosed mortuary.

He added that his wife threatened to also go out with other men.

Uwaila said he drove out of the house in anger and came back to see that his wife had locked herself and his sons inside one of the rooms.

He added that he shot through the door and the bullets hit them on the bed.

The state Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosun, who visited the scene, said the suspect would be charged to court after investigation had been concluded.
