Bayero University law student, Hanan who reportedly stabbed her husband after 7 months of marriage claims it was out of self defense.
Hanan has been accused of stabbing her husband, Saeed Hussein, at their home in Kano state on Friday June 21st, has said he got stabbed while she was trying to defend herself during a fight with him.
According to her neighbors, Hanan who was found with a swollen face and bruises all over her body, had been tolerating her husband who allegedly tortured her at the slightest opportunity.
Another neighbor stated that Hanan said her husband tried beating her up on the day of the incident despite knowing that she was pregnant. She said it was while she was protecting herself as her husband tried attacking her with a knife, that it mistakenly pierced into his body. This is different from previous claim that Hanan had drugged her husband before stabbing him and her intent might have been to take his life.
Hussain was rushed to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano after the incident but he didn’t survive.
Hanan is said to be in custody of the Police while investigation is on going to know the intent.
