My Husband Is Very Jealous Because I Am Beautiful -16-Year-Old Housewife

A 16-year-old housewife, Fatimah Mohammed, on Tuesday asked a Karu Upper Area Court, Abuja, to dissolve her two-year marriage to Tasiu Kasim, over alleged brutality and failure by Kasim to provide food for the family.

“We got married in 2015 and I have a child with my husband. But since we got married, there has been no peace in the marriage.

“He is always fighting with me over petty and insignificant issues. He always beats me up whenever issues arise and these beatings are now unbearable for me.


“Several times, he was warned by elders in both families to stop beating me, but he refused.”

Fatimah also accused her husband of leaving his responsibilities to her mother, who catered for them.

“My husband also abandoned his responsibility of taking care of me and my child. He doesn’t buy us clothes and other basic necessities.

She also accused her husband of being jealous and in the habit of accusing her of dating other men.

“My husband is very jealous and because I am beautiful, he is in the habit of accusing me of dating other men, saying I sell my beauty for money.

“It’s my mother who has been catering for me and my child,’’ Fatimah said.

She urged the court to dissolve the union, adding that she had already moved out of her matrimonial home.

Responding, Kasim, who did not deny any of the allegations, prayed the court to give him little time to talk to his wife if she could possibly change her decision.

“I don’t have much to say to the court because I love my wife, and I know that she loves me too. We got married because we love each other.

“The court should give us a little time to enable me to approach her and sort out these issues. I do not consent to her request for a divorce,” Kasim said.

The judge, Abdullahi Baba, adjourned the matter till September 8 to enable both parties sort out issues.

Gunmen Kidnap 11 Passengers In Port Harcourt

Gunmen have abducted 11 people from a bus near Port Harcourt on Monday, two of the passengers who escaped from the armed gunmen have said.

Also, addressing journalists at the state police command headquarters in Port Harcourt, the State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Zaki, while confirming the incident on Tuesday morning condemned the incident adding that efforts are underway to rescue the victims and bring the perpetrators to book.

The passenger told Premium Times reporter that the ambush took place around 9 p.m. on Monday between Ndele and Elele Alimini communities.


“After asking us to come out from the bus, they tried to take us inside the bush but five of us in the bus escaped before police and military personnel arrived the scene,” the passenger, Amiekro Princewill, said.


Another passenger who escaped, Bright Belekwe, explained that 18 passengers and the driver, had embarked on the journey but 16 persons were in the vehicle after two others alighted earlier.

Though security operatives made up of the police and soldiers were said to have combed the area in search of the armed bandits, they couldn’t locate the victims or their abductors.

“We were 18 excluding the driver who boarded the bus from Rumuokoro going to Ahoada but when we got to Ndele, two people dropped. After that, between Ndele and Elele Alimini, hoodlums ambushed us and tried to take us inside the bush.

“I and four others escaped before police personnel arrived the scene. We were ushered into another vehicle by the police which took us back to town,” Mr. Belekwe said.
 

Rivers DPO Arrested For Ritual Killer’s Escape From Custody

A Divisional Police Officer in Rivers State (name withheld) has been arrested on the orders of the State Police Command for his alleged involvement in the escape of one Ifeanyi Dike, who killed an eight-year-old for alleged money ritual.

A reliable police source disclosed that the DPO, who was arrested on Monday, was deeply involved in telephone calls between him and Johnbosco Okoroeze, a dismissed police sergeant, which indicated that there was a premeditated action by him to allow the suspected ritual killer to escape.

It was gathered that while preparations were ongoing by both the father of the deceased, Dr. Ernest Nmezuwuba, and the suspect (Dike) to write their statements, several calls were received from the said DPO by Okoroeze.


The top police source said, “We have enough evidence to believe that the DPO was working hand in hand with the ex-sergeant, who has been remanded in police custody. The DPO has been arrested.

“Even the father of the girl that was killed had said that there was communication with the IPO (dismissed sergeant) handling the matter and somebody that has not been disclosed. This happened while they were bringing the suspected ritual killer to the State Police Headquarters.

“All these and many more will serve as evidence against the DPO, who we believe has a lot to explain about his possible involvement in the escape of Ifeanyi Dike, who killed an eight-year-old boy, ostensibly for money ritual.”

Ifeanyi Dike had allegedly raped, killed and removed vital organs of an eight-year-old girl, Victory Chikamso, before escaping from police custody.

The father of the victim, Nmezuwuba, was at the State Criminal Investigation Department when the suspected murderer and ritualist escaped from police custody.

Nmezuwuba added that the suspect was able to escape because one of the policemen on duty on Saturday night identified as Johnbosco had unlocked the handcuffs for Dike to write his statement.
