Husband who attempted to murder wife over sex declared wanted
For refusing to have sex with her estranged husband, a woman's life is now in danger after she was macheted severely.
The man, Musa Rabiu, a gate man, according to the police release, got mad that his wife, Ramatu Ibrahim, refused to give in to his incessant demand for sex and inflicted life threatening machete wounds on her before escaping.
The police say the middle-aged woman is currently receiving treatment at a private hospital on Rabah Road, Kaduna North local government area as a result of injuries she sustained.
Reports have it that the two have been having issues in the past over sex and that Rabiu had sent Ramatu out of his house on that account but on the day of the incident, he had sent for her with the pretense that he wanted to reconcile with her.
Narrating her ordeal, Ramatu said:
"Since I was not suspecting any foul play, I went there the next day as agreed by 10.00 a.m. When I got there, he started talking to me on how he intends to bring me back to the house as his wife.
What spoiled the whole thing was that at about 12.30 p.m., after we had finished discussion and I have agreed to go back, he said we should go into the room and catch fun like husband and wife.
I refused outrightly and told him that he has to go to my people in Mararaban Jos and intimate them on the new development before that could happen; I guess that made him angry.
The next thing I saw, he removed his clothes, that he wanted to have his bath. But unknown to me, he went in to get a machete and before I knew what was happening, he started
I could not do anything but to pray to Allah because He knows and sees everything.
When he was done inflicting machete cuts me, he put his clothes on, locked me in the house and left the premises.
It was by God’s grace I managed to drag myself out of the house to the gate where I tried to call the attention of passers-by who later alerted the proper authorities and I was brought to the hospital.
During the 10 months that our marriage lasted, Musa had been very wicked to me.
I never visited my relations as anytime I asked him to go home and see my family, he refuses; even the day my junior sister came to visit us, he was very unhappy about it and he even asked me if I told her what was happening between the two of us and I said no."
The state police command say they will do everything possible to bring the run away Rabiu to book.
