What A pathetic story. According to PM News, a 24-year old member of the Deeper Life Bible Church called Sarah, who resided with her elder brother at the back of Government Secondary School, Galadima Area, Gonil-Gora, Kaduna State, has been stabbed to death by her husband’s first wife.
Sarah was 5 months pregnant when the tragedy occurred.
The deceased had been dating Ade Olanipekun for long but her elder brother, David, (formerly Tajudeen) before he embraced Christianity, warned her to desist from marrying a man whose first wife has five children, but she refused to listen.
An eye-witness who gave her name as Blessing Bankole said: “It was glaring that Sarah desperately wanted to marry Ade, to the extent that she was impregnated by him.
“When the relationship started, the deceased’s brother had to go to their father at their home town at Akoko area of Ondo State, Southwest Nigeria, to dissuade his daughter from doing what was wrong. But David was shocked that their father supported the relationship, claiming that Sarah, who later converted from Islam to Christianity through her elder brother, must marry Ade.”
Investigation revealed that last Saturday Ade went to pick her from her brother’s house to follow him to his house at Kampala West Nar’ya, Kaduna, where he resides with his first wife, Salamotu.
The tragedy occurred on Monday when the first wife and her husband had gone to their shop together and after about an hour, the first wife (Salamotu) told her husband that she was going home to cook for her children. And on getting home, she met the second wife sleeping.
She took a knife and stabbed Sarah to death.
She was caught in the act by one of her children who later the raised alarm. But before neighbours got inside, Sarah was dead, while the suspect was arrested in the toilet where she hid herself with the blood stained knife she used in stabbing the deceased.
She is presently being detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Kaduna.
She reportedly told the police that she had warned her husband not to marry another wife.
