Wife allegedly attacks Husband with Razor Blade weeks after Wedding



Police rescue abducted Pakistanis in Calabar area

A newly-wedded bride in Sokoto, Shafa Muhammad, 28, has allegedly attacked her husband Umar Shehu with a razor blade and injured him on the head.

The couple is resident at Arkillar Liman Area, Wamakko Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

The incident allegedly occurred on December 16, just three weeks after the couple wedded.

It was gathered that Shafa was allegedly forced to marry Shehu against her wish.

“The husband went into her room to consummate the marriage when she attacked him with a razor blade.

“He sustained injuries on the head as a result of the attack,’’ a source close to the family, who pleaded anonymity, said.

Confirming the incident, the spokesman of the Sokoto State Police Command, ASP Ibrahim Abarass, said the husband had been treated and discharged from the hospital because his injuries were not life threatening.

Abarass, however, said the wife had been detained by the police and would be prosecuted after investigation.

He advised parents to always consider the wishes of their children before getting them married.

    I am slowly but surely getting convinced the Northern brides are beginning a dangerous revolt (against arranged marriages) by maiming or murdering their grooms.

    Just saying……..
