An 18-year-old woman who was allegedly forced to marry a man she did not love, is said to have killed her husband in Kano on Wednesday.
According to Vanguard, the woman, Rahma Hussaini and the deceased, 24-year-old Tijjani Basiru had just gotten married on Friday, February 20th.
The couple’s neighbours told newsmen that their union was a forced marriage.
Speaking on the incident, Isa Alhassan said, “we were alarmed by a frightening scream of a subdued man in need of rescue and we rushed to the scene only to discover that the man of the house was in the pool of his blood… neighbours mobilized and took the groom to the hospital but doctors confirmed him dead on arrival.”
Hussaini has been taken into police custody.
