A 20-year old bride, Aisha Isa Fagge, who married some days ago was found dead inside her matrimonial house at Sharada Ja’en quarters of Gwale local government area in Kano state.
Information indicates that a day before her death her husband Alhaji Nura Muhammad was at the house along with his friend, one Babba, and stayed for sometime chatting with the deceased.
Initial reports indicate that Aisha was raped and strangled by her suspected killers who went to her house in broad daylight.
However, there was conflicting information regarding her death. While her husband said he found his wife with both hands tied, the women who bathed her body before funeral rites said that there was no sign of any harm done to her before her death.
In a swift reaction, the state police command made some arrests in connection with the case. Those arrested include one Babba and Abdul Zahir Muhd Saminu who are assisting police investigations.
Some of her neighbours expressed fear that this horrible crime happened in broad daylight. They described the situation as pathetic as both the bride and her husband are new settlers at the Ja’en quarters.
