Police have arrested a 17-year-old housewife, Rabi Rabi’u, who stabbed her husband, Shamsu Salisu, to death in Katsina State last Wednesday.
Rabi, who was paraded at the Katsina State Police Command Headquarters on Tuesday, said amidst sobs that she never knew the stab could lead to the death of the 25-year-old Salisu.
According to her, the incident happened on Wednesday morning when public power supply was restored in their community and she wanted to charge her phones.
She said Salisu equally wanted to charge his phones at the same time.
She added the argument led to a scuffle between the two of them, adding that Salisu drew out a knife, which she snatched from him.
Rabi, who spoke in Hausa explained, “The incident happened early in the morning during prayer time. Public power supply was restored in our area and I wanted to charge my phones, while Salisu also wanted to charge his.
“Unfortunately, we were arguing over who should use the charger first when Salisu drew out a knife and I snatched it from him and stabbed him in the stomach and he later died.
“Our marriage was just 51-day-old and we were yet to have children, but I still love him. I never knew that the stab would lead to his death.
