Man stabs former wife, brother-In-Law after Court terminates their marriage union

The Kano Police Command has arrested a 28-year-old man, Biliyaminu Abdullahi for allegedly stabbing his ex-wife, Shafa’atu Sule and her brother, minutes after a Sharia court sitting in Rano terminated their marriage in Kano

Confirming the report, the spokesperson of the command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa said the incident which occurred on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 11am at Wutar Kara village in Rano Local government area of the Kano state has been transferred to the state CID unit of the command for discrete investigation before the suspect is charged to court.

During police interrogation, Abdullahi confessed to the crime stating that his action was informed by displeasure with the court’s judgement because no offence was established that warranted the ruling.

Crime Channel gathered that the suspect owned up to the offence, but claimed that he was living peaceably with his wife when her brother, Adamu Saleh took her away from their matrimonial home for no reason adding that all attempts by him to bring the wife back proved abortive because her family insisted that he must divorce her for no just cause.


“Her brother came to my house and took her away for no reason. I followed them to inquire over what offence, they didn’t tell me. I sent an intermediary who didn’t tell him why they took my wife away. I went to their house to hear my offence. They chased me away asking me to divorce their daughter and I rejected them then they charged me to court.

“After investigation the court found no
offence on me, the judge dismissed the case, they reported to another court no
offence, the court threw away the case. They reported again the third time where the court ruled that the marriage be terminated. The court said I should
collect N20, 000 as dowry. I refused, insisting that I only want my wife” he said

“Then the judge gave them permission to go and pack their properties from my house, that made me furious and I decided to take this action by stabbing both of them. I stabbed her on her head and her brother on his shoulder seeing that he was the genesis of my predicament.

The wife, Shafa’atu Sule who is heavily pregnant for Abdullahi however alleged lack of care and assault against her ex-husband who she added abuses her parents on little or no provocation.
