SIBU: A woman here lodged a police report against her husband for allegedly abusing and threatening her.

Following the report, a police team arrested the man in his 40s in the city centre.

The victim said she feared for her safety after she saw a gun in her husband’s car on Saturday morning (Sept 26) before deciding to lodge a police report against him.
