Embattled bride accused of stabbing her husband, Fatima Musa has denied intentionally stabbing him saying it was an act of self defence.
Solacebase recalled that the twenty-one-year-old bride was accused of stabbing the husband Saheed Husaini in the abdomen on Friday night at about 1.30am at their residence at Ungwar Mai Kalwa, Naibawa quarters in Kumbotso local government area of Kano and presently receiving treatment at Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital.
Fatima Musa in an exclusive interview with Solacebase on Sunday said prior to the incident of Friday night, her husband was used to assaulting her on any slight differences.
She explained that on the faithful night, Saheed Husaini came in late and asked her to switch off the air conditioner in the living room which she did, he later joined her in the bed room.
She noted that immediately her husband came into the bed room, he stated nagging his usual way and subsequently wanted to mate her which she refused as she was not in the mood.
‘’It was when he was trying to force me that he started beating me until I ran out of the bed room into the kitchen side and lock the door. He forced the door open and continue assaulting me. I fell in the course of the beating and incidentally laid my hand on a knife that was why I stabbed him while trying to free myself from the beating.’’
‘’Honestly I don’t intend to stab him at all but I was trying to free myself from the beating. I love him and he knows that. I am regretting the act, ‘’said Fatima.
A family source told Solacebase that Fatima is about four months pregnant
