Bride Stabs Husband To Death 11 Days After Wedding
A time when a couple is still enjoying a honeymoon, an 18-year-old 11-day-old bride has been arrested for killing her husband.
The incident happened in Itas Gadau in Bauchi State.
Salman Hassan stabbed her husband, Mohammed Mustapha to death over sex, according to Punch.
The Bauchi state police paraded Salman on Thursday alongside other suspects.
Salman reportedly confessed to the crime, adding that she stabbed her husband after he insisted on having sex with her.
The alleged murderer also claimed that the husband hit her after she refused to have sex with him, claiming she didn’t mean to kill him but scare him off for the night.
Salman stated, “We were married and we loved each other. After 11 days of our marriage, he came to sleep with me but I refused. He hit me and I took a knife and stabbed him. I never meant to kill him. I only wanted to threaten him. It was a small stab and I did not know he would die.
“I am in great pain. I am in bitter. I don’t know what will happen to me.”
The State Police Commissioner Philip Maku said the incident happened on April 24, 2020.
One Hauna Musa (relationship unknown) reported the case at the Itas-Gadau Police Division.
According to Maku, Mustapha sustained an injury to the chest and was rushed to the General Hospital where the doctors confirmed his demise.
“The suspect was arrested and she confessed to the crime. Exhibit recovered from the suspect was a knife,” the CP added.
