A 19-year-old wife, Rabi Shamsudden has reportedly stabbed her husband, Shamsuddeen Salisu, to death in Katsina state.
According to NAN, the incident occurred at Malumfashi local government area of the state.
Gambo Isah, spokesman of the police in the state, told newsmen that Rabi stabbed her husband at 4am in Danjanku-Tasha village.
“The shout for help by Salisu attracted neighbours. When the people went to offer assistance, they discovered that the door to the compound was locked,” Isah said.
“Some of the people jumped into the compound and found the victim in the pool of his blood; crawling out from his room with a wound in his stomach.
“The neighbours also told the police that the wife (Rabi) was (allegedly) seen holding a knife with blood stains.”
