Teenager Kills Husband For Trying To Have Sex With Her, Says She Doesn't Know Sex Is A Marriage Obligation

A 17-year-old wife has reportedly killed her husband as he tried to have sex with her in Bauchi, claiming she had no idea sex is a marital obligation.

Salma Hassan, a resident of Itas-Gadau, was paraded at the Bauchi Police Command on Tuesday, May 19, for stabbing her husband to death 11 days after their wedding as she thought her husband was trying to defile her.

She told journalists that when her husband approached her for sex that night, she thought what he was doing was wrong, so she objected.

However, her husband beat her and tried to force himself on her. She said she then picked a knife to scare him but mistakenly stabbed him with it.

She said: “We were married. We loved each other. “I never knew that sex is a marital obligation. On that fateful night when he approached me for sex, I refused him because I have never been involved in it. I thought he wanted to defile me. “He later got angry and was trying to force himself on me with slaps and beating, then I picked up a knife to scare him away but he kept coming. I didn’t know when I stabbed him with the knife in his chest.

“I have already given my statement. I’m in great suffering. I’m in great bitterness. I don’t know what will happen to me now. But I wouldn’t have done what I did if I knew better.”

According to a Police statement, a knife was recovered when they arrested Salma for culpable homicide at her home in Itas-Gadau.
