A jealous woman has been arrested by the Zamfara State Police Command for allegedly stabbing her husband several times in stomach, chest and back, because he gave the first wife more attention.
According to a Facebook user, Aishat Alubankudi, the pretty lady, Amina Maru, who herself is a second wife, got mad that her husband showed more attention to her senior wife and allegedly stabbed him with a kitchen knife in Gusau, the state capital.
Alubankudi narrated how the incident happened:
“Amina Maru stabbed her husband NOT because he is warming up for a new wife, but out of mere detestation.
A reliable source revealed to me that the man has two wives already; Amina Maru (the accused) and the senior wife (names withheld). Amina, according to the evidence on ground, is not contented with the affairs between her husband and the senior wife.
She’s always accusing the husband of preconception and alleges that the man bought a new car for the senior wife, who is a top civil servant.
On the faithful day, he was meant to spend the night at the accused apartment, since he has two separate houses. Unfortunately for him, he was invited to an impromptu business meeting with a top government official in the state.
The meeting was over-stretched and at a point, the accused felt that that he went to ‘Cuwa-cuwa’ (Hausa slang for short time) with the ‘Uwargida’ (first wife) in her home before coming to her house.
She got infuriated. The anger therefore triggered her to dwell on him with a sharp knife while he was asleep.”
“The source also confirmed that the accused has been warning the victim to divorce her, if not, he’ll regret some atrocities.
But he gave her threats a deaf ear. She targeted June 12 to carry out the barbarism because the day was their 1st marriage anniversary.
She’s cooling her feet in the custody, while the victim is receiving treatment in Gusau, Zamfara State.”
