Wife who stabbed husband of 7 months speaks out, says it was self-defense

- A man is currently battling for his life at the Aminut Teaching Hospital in Kano state, after he was allegedly stabbed by his wife

- The wife identified as Hanan, a law graduate from the Bayero University in Kano, got married to him in December, 2018

While many people choose to walk out of abusive marriages and relationships alike, it appears some would rather stay and fight for their voices to be heard sometimes leading to a tragic end. This case appears to be no different.

Barely a year after house wife, Maryam Sanda, was been remanded in Suleja prison for allegedly killing her husband, Bilyamin Bello, a son of a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chairman, another lady appears to be going down that path barely 7 months into her marriage.

Identified as Hanan Hussain, she reportedly stabbed her husband Saeed, with a knife during a fight. Hanan who is said to be a law graduate from the Bayero University in Kano, has since been arrested while her husband remains in critical condition at the Aminut Teaching Hospital in Kano.

In what can be regarded as a sad, heart-rending story, a man has been accused of killing his own wife named Dorothy Ole Ogoloma. As gathered by Legit.ng, the said man who is a lecturer named Jonathan allegedly beat the woman to death in the presence of her mother due to an argument that ensued between both of them.

Unfortunately, the beating had reportedly taken its toll on the deceased due to the fact that she had just put to birth about two weeks earlier. Apparently, the weakness from the conception and delivery had quickened her imminent death.
