A housewife identified as Suwaiba Shuaibu has allegedly killed her husband’s fiancée, a 17-year-old Aisha Kabir in Gimawa village, Doguwa Local Government Area of Kano State.
The husband, Shahrehu Alhaji Ali and his fiancée, Aisha, all residents of the same area, were said to be in a serious relationship for over six years and scheduled to wed on 9 January 2021 before the incident happened.
It was gathered that the housewife, Suwaiba (second wife) got wind of the planned wedding ceremony and lured late Aisha to an uncompleted building in the neighbourhood where she stabbed her to death.
The police spokesperson, DSP Abdullahi Haruna who confirmed the incident to journalists on Tuesday, said the command received a complaint from the deceased’s father, Kabiru Jafaru that his daughter who had suddenly gone missing on New year’s day was found dead.
He said the suspect was arrested and had confessed to having carried out the atrocity out of jealousy.
