Yobe woman stabs husband to death after a domestic fight

Thursday, June 27, 2024 -
The Yobe State Police Command has apprehended a 22-year-old woman named Zainab Isa for allegedly murdering her 25-year-old husband, Ibrahim Yahaya, in Abbari Ward, Damaturu city.

In a statement to the press in Damaturu, the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Dungus Abdulkareem, expressed the command's sorrow over the tragic incident resulting from an abusive marriage.

He explained that the C Divisional Police Headquarters received a report from a neighbor in Abbari Ward about a violent altercation between the couple. The argument escalated, and Zainab reportedly stabbed Ibrahim in the chest with a knife. Tragically, he succumbed to his injuries before the police arrived.

The suspect was taken to the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) for a thorough investigation and will be charged in court.

In her confession, Zainab claimed she did not intend to kill her husband but acted in self-defense. She revealed that their marriage had been fraught with violence, particularly when she asked for food or money. This pattern of abuse continued even after the birth of their first child and the arrival of their second, despite her husband's inability to support the family.
