A magistrate court in Kano, on Tuesday, February 16, ordered an 18-year-old housewife, identified as Suwaiba Shuaibu, to be remanded in jail for allegedly stabbing her husband’s 17-year-old fiancée, Aisha Kabir, to death.

The suspect was nabbed on January 2, 2021 and during interrogation, confessed that she murdered the victim out of jealousy because her husband was planning to marry her.

The Prosecutor, Asma’u Ado, told the magistrate that on January 1, 2021, at about 10.pm, the defendant called her husband’s fiancée, Aisha Kabir, on phone.

“In the process, the defendant deceived and lured the victim into an uncompleted building at Gimawa village, attacked and stabbed her with a sharp knife on her neck and chest. On January 2, the victim was found at the uncompleted building by her father, Kabiru Jafaru, and was rushed to the Tudun Wada General Hospital where she was confirmed dead,” Ado said, adding that the offence contravened Section 221 of the Penal Code.

The defendant later denied committing the said offence.

Mustapha Sa’ad-Datti, the Chief Magistrate, then ordered that the defendant be remanded in a prison pending legal advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), and adjourned the case to March 17, 2021.
