Housewife, 18, allegedly stabbed husband to death to avoid defilement

A housewife has allegedly stabbed her husband to death in Bauchi.

The woman identified as Salma Hassan is said to have allegedly stabbed him to death because she didn’t know that sex was a marital obligation.

Salma,18,  who is being detained by the Police Command in Bauchi, told newsmen that she killed her husband, Mohammed Mustafa because she thought he was “just trying to defile me”.

“I didn’t know that sex is a marital obligation. On that day, when he approached me for sex, I refused because I have never been involved in it before.

“I thought he wanted to rape me but he got angry and was trying to force himself on me. He started beating me.

“I picked up a knife to scare him away but he kept coming and I didn’t know when I stabbed him with the knife in his chest,” she said.

Salma further explained that she had already given her statement to the Police and did not know what would become her fate.

“I wouldn’t have done it if I knew better about marital obligations,” she claimed.
