Daily Trust reports that a housewife simply identified as Atika has stabbed her husband to death in Mararaba, Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
The incident, City & Crime learnt, happened on Saturday night.
Ibrahim Salihu (37), a mechanic, was said to have gone to Atika’s room, who was his first wife, to bid her farewell and go to the second wife’s room within the same compound.
City & Crime gathered that Salihu used to spend two nights with each of the wives on a rotational basis and had the habit of bidding farewell to any of them anytime he was leaving for the other’s room.
“And that was what he did that day around 8pm, only for Atika to respond angrily and bite his finger,’’ a source within the compound said.
Salihu’s mother, Hajiya Hauwa Umar, yesterday told our reporter that, “The other wife rushed to his rescue and was trying to tie the affected finger, but again the first wife, who had already locked the compound’s gate, held him from the back and stabbed him on the neck continuously.”
Salihu was confirmed dead at the hospital and was buried yesterday morning according to Islamic injunction, while the suspect is said to be in police custody.’’
There was no reaction from the Nasarawa State Police Command on the incident up till the time of filing this report.
