      Don’t judge. You don’t have the full information. You don’t know what you would have done if you were in his situation. Since you don’t have all the information, don’t rush to pronounce him guilty.

      No matter what or what behavior that your wife is exhibiting that does not give any man the power or whatever to kill his wife.

      I fear God

      Am just seeing this but I won’t be surprise to hear you do the same thing directly or indirectly. Those who marry for what their spouse will give them, kill when they don’t get it. Thank God for America where justice will be serve. Most of all the Living God will catch up you here on earth because the bible says “though hand join in hand the wicked will not go unpunished”.

    I won’t be surprised if this man shot his wife for “growing wings” and disobeying his orders. Is it by force? Now their children will end up growing up without the love of their parents. Trust the Americans. They will skin and smoke him

    My suggestions are:
    1. Nigerian men should stop marrying Nigerian women. African-american men are not marrying african-american women. Black women don’t get it. Leave them alone.
    2. If you must marry, do a pre-nuptial agreement and avoid money issues

    I’m done.

    Why should a man lift up a gun and shoot a woman he called his wife? what wings did she grow that he wouldnt have call it a quit? why should we pretend to love when we dont just to satisfy the so call society we live in, a matured man should never raise finger at a woman but unfortunately nigerian men are known for beating their wives as goats which is a shame. Madam rest in peace, l wish you had walk away just to save your live and not to be cut short the way this hopeless man has done.

    BECAUSE ,AS SOON AS YOU GET MARRIED , YOU WILL REALIZE THAT YOUR SO CALLED PARTNER ,HAS BEEN SPYING ON YOU , AND WAS NO MORE THAN PAY AS YOU GO WHORE ,OR GIGOLO.WHO WAS AFTER YOUR WAGES AND TURN YOU INTO A DEAD WOOD .

    SOME WOMEN AND MEN ARE ESU, VAMPIRE ,VIOLENT , BULLY, THUG.
    AS SOON AS YOU BRING THEM ABROAD THEY TURN THEMSELVES INTO A CALCULATOR. THEY WANT TO EMPTY ALL YOUR POCKET, AND TAKE ALL WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR ALL YOUR LIFE .

    It’s a huge shame to see how our Nigerian men are killing their wives in the United states nowadays. I can only point on Two major factors responsible for this madness: One is the age bracket, Two is quest of materialism:

    Age: When you marry a girl who is young enough to call you grand pa, what do you expect? she has to enjoy life as her age permits, because you have lived yours and retired. Her kind of music, fashion, friends, ways of talking, sex etc. are different from yours. This gap leads to jealousy and hatred on your own side.

    Quest of materialism: why developing another person when you have not developed yourself? If you love nurse’s paycheck-go do nursing program before getting married or together with your wife. Why spending your time watching TV and gossiping instead of investing it gainfully. While your wife is burning day and night developing herself in nursing school, there are many other things you can do?

    By the time she graduates, her problem starts: you force her to be working double shifts at her job place, You practically turn your own wife into ATM machine, You begin to use her hard earned money to be giving donations in parties. Any day she complains, the world will hear it. Nigerian men, what have you seen in Nurses’ pockets?

    You have never been to Nigeria in twenty years, you have no block of your own in Nigeria. When you marry a nurse, you remember to get an architectural design to build “a befitting house of a Nigerian man based in the U.S” in your village, this is when you want to buy a big mansion in your city and drive big SUVs – to compete with your friends.

    My fellow Nigerians, please, stop this killings . Marry a spouse who belongs to your age bracket, and learn to live simple. Stop putting your children into this perpetual bitterness/agony. They never caused this greed of yours!

    My last advice, if you kill in this country (USA), justice will surely come after you, and you will also become a history like the spouse you killed, be warned!!!!

    pls enough of all these comments… this is such a shame and disrespectful to the families involved, a young lady had just lost her life , a man has tragedially shot his wife dead, which i think that on the day of their wedding , wasn’t in his agenda…. they are family from both sides here who have lost someone dearest to them… and if they were children invloved in this family, they have lost both parents, and they might be left unto the hands of the state….. as fellow humans and nigerians we should all show sympathy and resmorse for them and pray for mercies please and thank you

    I wonder why all the comment is all about being a Nigerian. For these Nigerian women, if you think that getting a nursing license will put you in the position of competition with husband and subsequently ruining his life, don’t get married. For the men, be prepared to loose most of what you have and walk away if you must marry a nurse. It is now, an epidemic in the Nigerian society of Nurses. They think being a nurse is being on top. All these killing don’t worth it. Personally, i was a victim of the same thing. I brought a girl, trained her in nursing school paying $200 dollars a unit at a time as an international student. Though, i didn’t want her study nursing but she said that’s what she wanted. Money wasn’t the issue because my income was enough to maintain the household. At least making or makes six figure. Immediately after her nursing certification, problem started everywhere. The sister will come to my house and pointing fingers at me, telling me that my house of 15 years is her sister’s. We have a son together and she did all to provoke me so that i can do some stupid thing but i was wise enough and followed her with wisdom. So, no matter what you use loose in a marriage, remember that you made that money and you can recoup and for the sake of the kids, please leave the house and possibly get a divorce. I REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS GUY WENT THROUGH BUT IT DOESN’T THE HEADACHE!

    I am a Nigerian and a nurse, I was a graduate from the university of ife. when I met my husband in the U.S, he was in school, after he graduated, he did not seek employment anywhere because of the his mentality that he does not want to work for a white man ( I wonder what was he doing here in the first place). when I saw the situation of things, I decided to go to nursing school, he decided to stay to stay in Nigerian chasing unfruitful businesses, living beyond his means. I was focused and graduated from nursing school. within 6months, he said we needed to buy a house,( his credit is bad) so the house was bought in my name. he decided to stop paying bill after about 4momths. he went to live In Nigeria and left me paying the bills and taking care of the children. for 12yrs, I was paying the entire bill in the house, even buying food and taking care of my own family back home. at times I am tired of just living from paycheck to paycheck, so we do argue most times, at a point we did not speak to each other for about 7months, but living in the same house. he started saying I am doing juju to him, because he is been here for 25yrs and has not made headway. ( I contributed towards his business in Nigeria, but because of living like a big man in nija, the business crashed)
    so we should be careful before we start judging nurses( nursing pay is over-rated), I really do not know the big deal about nursing at all. this men killing their wives should go back to school, stop being insecured or otherwise enjoy your wife’s success togather. at the same time both needs to apply wisdom.it is not that serious ha ha

    Hey people. It is such a sad thing to read this type of stories about 9ja men killing their wives , over what?, It’s even more sad to realize that many of these men would forgive their offending neighbors, friends, relations. Can we forgive our spouses even when they did not ask for forgiveness, what happens to the motherless children? these are some of the questions we should answer before losing our head. May the soul of the poor lady rest in peace.

    Oh Woww. Well my analysis here is the woman used the man to get to where she wanted and decideds to dump him. Killing anyone is wrong but we can all agree no one loves to be used and dumped. I got my credit ruined and lost all I worked for to a man that promised me heaven and earth, he never quarrelled or got cross with me- I was a fool in love, I believed everything. I remember giving him my financial aid money bbecause he lied his mother was dying in Nigeria. just when he was done using me to the core. He brought his wife which I knew nothing about from Nigeria with 2kids to live with him in the apartment I gave him rent money and furnished for him. I know I was stupid but I was also in love and deceived. I’m still paying credit card bills he incurred in my name for the past 3yrs and still not close to settling it. Even though I don’t own a gun or have the heart to murder, I always wish him dead everyday, if I was in Africa, I properbly would have consulted some voodoo people to turn him mad or something… Anything to make him feel a quarter of what he put me thru. who in my shoes wouldn’t? He practically ruined my whole life. I’m not gonna sit here and lie that I don’t understand this man thhat shot his wife. My advise to everyone is, stop using people. Pls get married for the right reasons and live within your means because when people get scorned, in most cases you subject them to mental illness and your karma might be death. I feel bad for the shot lady, may her soul Rip, I also feel bad for the murderer husband. I hope we learn from this.

    RIP. People should stop saying what they dont know. Nigerian MEN are GREEDY and they turn their WIVES into SLAVE and ATM machine in USA. Im talking about my situations. We started car business cuz my hubby is an Mechanic engineer. To make the story short. I was working as a nurse 2 FULL TIME job for a year to build our business which he sent cars to 9ja but NEVER bring MONEY back to the household. Whenever i ask him about the MONEY or business, he will get Physical with me. I press charges on him which he ended in jail for 3 days. He also Travel to 9ja by himself never ever take us along with him. My family found out that he has another woman in 9ja. So if you don’t know some people STORIES stop judging THEM. You dont know what they are going through. And 9ja MEN are quick to ANGER. After my PHYSICAL ABUSE, I ended up with STOMACH SURGERY.
