Suspected angry housewife, Rabi Shamsudden stabbed her husband, Salisu to death in Malumfashi Local Government Area of Katsina State, Nigeria on January 27, 2020.

The shout for help by Salisu attracted neighbours. When the people went to offer assistance, they discovered that the door to the compound was locked. Some of the people jumped into the compound and found the victim in the pool of his blood; crawling out from his room with a wound in his tummy.

The neighbours who spoke to the police thereafter alleged that the wife,Rabi was seen holding a knife with bloodstains.

Rabi Shamsuddeen is a 19-year-old of Danjanku-Tasha in Malumfashi Local Government, while the husband, Shamsuddeen Salisu is 25.

Stabbing husband to death is becoming a new trend to settle scores by some wives in Nigeria. Just a few days ago Maryam Sanda was sentenced to death by hanging by an FCT High Court for stabbing her husband to death. Domestic violence has to be avoided by both husband and wife.
