A new bride in Sokoto, Shafa Muhammad, 28, has attacked her husband with a razor blade and injured him on the head.
The couple is resident at Arkillar Liman Area, Wamakko Local Government Area of Sokoto State.
The incident allegedly occurred on December 16, just three weeks after the couple were wed.
“The husband reportedly went into her room to consummate the marriage when she allegedly attacked him with a razor blade. “He sustained injuries on the head as a result of the attack,’’ a source close to the family, who pleaded anonymity, said.
Confirming the incident, the spokesman of the Sokoto State Police Command, ASP Ibrahim Abarass, said the husband has been treated and discharged from the hospital because his injuries were not life-threatening.
Abarass, however, said the wife has been detained by the police and would be prosecuted after investigation. He advised parents to always consider the wishes of their children before giving them out to be married.
