Daily Trust has revealed more facts sorrounding the tragic death of a newly-wedded bride, Aisha Isa Fagge, who was killed just 12 days after her wedding in Sharada Ja’en Quarters, Kano.
It was earlier reported that the late bride was found brutally murdered by unknown person(s) in August 2015 and there were no traces as to who could have perpetrated the dastardly act.
Facts have now started building up five months down the line, on the possibility of her husband being involved in the untimely death of the bride.
The deceased’s husband, Alhaji Nura Muhammad, told police that he found her lifeless body in the sitting room, with both of her hands tied with a rope.
In his explanation, Muhammad confirmed that he had spoken with her on the phone at about 10.00am that day and all was well but became worried when he got home and did not get a response to the knocks on the door.
“A neighbour, Rabi’u Abdulkadir, joined me and we broke down the door, and entered the house to find Aisha dead,” he said.
According to Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Magaji Musa Majia, “Late Aisha was found dead, naked with her two hands tied with a rope, suggesting that she was raped before killed.
“Police had during investigation discovered some bloodstains and semen on Abdulzahir Muhammad Saminu, one of the two suspects arrested. Saminu is the groom’s friend, while the other suspect is Rabi’u Abdulkadir, a neighbor.”
The case was brought up last Monday for continuation as the deceased’s husband, Alhaji Muhammad, was arrested on the premises of the court as requested by the prosecution counsel, Barrister Lamido Abba Soron-Dinki.
The Police spokesman said afterwards that, “We have strong evidence that Nura had a hand in the murder of late Aisha,” adding that “he is being interrogated at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the command.”
While being taken to a vehicle parked at the premises of the court, Muhammad reportedly told journalists that,“Even if one of the two accused persons is my friend does not mean I am party to the murder of my late wife. Why on earth would I kill my own wife?”
While commenting on the sad incident, The late bride’s father, Alhaji Isa Fagge, who was shocked with the turn of things, told Daily Trust that he has left everything to God.
“I’ve left everything to God. I have lost her and she will never come back again,” he said, adding that “since the police have taken over the case, he hopes justice will prevail.”
