A man, Sa’id Hussain, who was reportedly stabbed by his 21-year-old wife, Fatima Musa, has fully recuperated and revealed that she caught his wife while sending nudes to her boyfriend.
Speaking shortly after he recovered, he further shared that it was the wife that tried stabbing him, contrary to reports that she stabbed him in self-defense after he pounced on her.
What he said in full:
“I caught my wife dancing indecently in my parlour where she was recording the dance on her phone and sending the video clips to her boyfriends,” he told journalists.
“I told her mother about it and she asked me if my wife’s elder sister and grandmother knew what was happening and she pleaded with me not to reveal it to anyone so as not to soil the image of their family.
“Also I challenged one of the boyfriends with whom my wife was exchanging voice notes but said he was not aware that my wife was a married woman.
“This is one of over 30 voice messages I found,” he said, turning on a recorded audio conversation he had with his wife’s alleged boyfriend on his phone.
“I also have evidence on how my wife invited her lover from Abuja and had a session with him in a hotel in Bompai, which name I will not reveal. She did this precisely on 26th April, 2016, while being married. She was at the hotel from 10:13 a.m and stayed up to 12:16 pm. And the CCTV camera of that hotel captured this information I’m talking about.
“Also on that same day, a Friday, I caught her taking drugs in my house. She was taking Shisha with some substances that include high concentration of narcotic. During the last Ramadan fast, she sprinkled drops of poisonous insecticides in my food, a meal of fried eggs. I have the evidence of that too.
“When the problem became so serious, we had to seek audience with Dr. Bashir (Umar), chief Imam of Al-Furqan Jumuat Mosque, who is a well-respected marriage counsellor in order to get advice and save the marriage.
“We went to see Dr. Bashir along with my wife, her mother and her elder brother in my car. I narrated all my accusations against her, including her infidelity, promiscuity and drug abuse which she all admitted to Dr. Bashir.
“But it was on the same day after we returned home that she stabbed me with a knife after I seized her phone, which she used to send her nude pictures and videos to her boyfriends. I was already in bed when she picked two knives from her kitchen and came to the room. She sat in front of my bed, with her back facing the mirror as if she was meditating. At that moment, she raised the first knife and stabbed me on the side of my stomach and then threw the knife behind her.
“I woke up fully to see her raising the second knife to strike me but I attempted to hold her hand, getting injured in the process. This is the scar as you can see.
“She raised the knife again to strike me but I dodged, forcing the knife to sink into the mattress. At that moment, I stood up and held her hand in an attempt to seize the knife. She bit my hand during the struggle, warning me to release. It was in this struggle that I pushed her and she fell and hit her head against the side drawer and subsequently on the rough floor tiles which made her face swollen.
“It was not true that we fought in the kitchen. The trail of blood stains could be seen only from the floor of my room to the parlour.
“Therefore I challenge her family members from both her mother’s and father’s side to bring any evidence that I was beating their daughter every day. The video clip they were circulating were from the scene of this particular incident we are talking about.
“So, my friend Lawali rescued me on that day with the help of Allah and took me to the hospital. As he was holding my feet while I was writhing in pains, the third face I saw on me was that of my mother-in-law and I warned her not to touch me. My friend Ustaz can testify to this.
“I complained to her that she was aware of my wife’s promiscuous behaviour and her attempt to poison me but they didn’t take action. At hearing this, my mother-in-law started gesturing to me to keep quiet, pleading with me not to expose her daughter’s bad behaviour to the world.
“Before leaving the hospital, my mother-in-law sought permission from my friend Ustaz to privately see and discuss with her daughter.”
