“The incident happened early in the morning during prayer time. Public power supply was restored in our area and I wanted to charge my phones, while Salisu also wanted to charge his.
“Unfortunately, we were arguing over who should use the charger first when Salisu drew out a knife and I snatched it from him and stabbed him in the stomach and he later died.
“Our marriage was just 51-day-old and we were yet to have children, but I still love him. I never knew that the stab would lead to his death.
