Published

Barely three weeks after she was forced to marry a man she did not love, a 28-year-old woman Shafa Muhammad, in Sokoto State, attacked her husband Umar Shehu with a razor blade, inflicting serious injuries on his face and head.

The incident was reported on Friday, December 16, 2017, at the couple’s residence at Arkillar Liman area in Wamakko Local Government Area of the state after Muhammad was forced to marry Shehu by her family against her wish.

It was gathered that Shehu had gone to Muhammad’s room to have sex with her as she had refused to allow him to sleep with her since their forced marriage but she was prepared for him and attacked him when he wanted to force himself on her.

Confirming the incident and arrest of the suspect, the State Command Police Public Relations Officer [PPRO], ASP Ibrahim Abarass, said the husband had been treated and discharged from the hospital because his injuries were not life-threatening while the suspect is still in custody.

“The husband went into her room to consummate the marriage when she attacked him with a razor blade.

He sustained injuries on the head as a result of the attack,” ASP Abarass said.

ASP Abarass added that Muhammad would be prosecuted after an investigation by the police, advising parents to always consider the wishes of their children before forcing them into marriages.

The High Court in Mukono District in central Uganda found her guilty of murdering her husband Eric Kiddu after hitting him several times on the head with an iron bar.

After the murder Nakku attempted to make the killing appear to be the result of an attack by unknown people by screaming and running to neighbours to ask for help. His body was later found in a pool of blood with a panga and brick besides it, the Daily Monitor reported.

The couple had quarrelled shortly before the bloody encounter with a misunderstanding leading to Kiddu’s death.

Nakku was advised by the judge to appeal the sentence if she was dissatisfied as relatives of both husband and wife argued outside the court, trading accusations.
