The Police in Kano on Tuesday vowed to arrest those behind the murder of a newly-wed bride (name withheld) in Sha’iskawa village of Danbatta Local Government Area of the state.
The Public Relations Officer of the state Police Command, DSP Magaji Majiya, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the command had already commenced investigation into the incident with a view to arresting perpetrators of the dastardly act.
“After we received the report of the incident around 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, the Crime Investigation Department swung into action.
“As the Police reported to the scene, they found that the late bride was raped before she was stabbed to death in her matrimonial room.
“We have so far launched an investigation into the incident and that will lead us to the arrest of the assailants,” Majiya said.
He, however, said that the command had yet to make any arrests, but that the knife used in killing the woman had been recovered.
He reminded members of the public on the need to always be security conscious.
NAN recalls that the victim was stabbed to death on Saturday night in her room few days after her wedding and the husband returned to Abuja where he runs his business.
A similar incident happened last year when a teen bride was reportedly raped and slaughtered by hoodlums at Bachirawa quarters in Kano metropolis.
