A woman has gone into hiding after stabbing a six-year-old girl, Sherifat Usman, who is currently battling for her life. A middle-aged woman, Fatima Malam, allegedly stabbed her in Kano State.

It was reported that Fatima stabbed the girl to protest her father’s advice to her husband to marry a second wife. She was said to have stabbed the victim many times in her stomach.

Punch reports that Fatima was annoyed when she learnt that Sherifat’s father, a friend of her husband, has been the one advising him to get another wife.

However, Fatima’s husband identified as Malam claimed that his wife is mentally deranged.

The two families are residents of Gadon Kaya Damatsiri in the Gwale Local Government Area of Kano State.

Sources said Fatima lured Sherifat to accompany her to the Mariri area in the Kumbotso Local Government Area of the state where she stabbed the girl.

A sources said, “On their way to Mariri, Fatima bought a kitchen knife on credit. She took Sherifat to an uncompleted building where she stabbed her severally in her stomach with the sole intention to kill her.

“Fatima wanted to kill Sherifat in vengeance because she felt her (Sherifat’s) father was the one instigating her husband to get a second wife.

“Fatima has been acting strange in recent times. Some weeks ago, she brought out a pestle one evening, threatening that she would kill somebody if her husband eventually takes another wife.”

It was learnt that after stabbing Sherifat, Fatima hurriedly left the scene believing that the little girl was dead.

It was reported that the girl’s cry, however, attracted passers-by who rescued her from the scene.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed the incident to journalists on Wednesday.

He, however, said the matter was still under investigation as policemen are making efforts to arrest the fleeing suspect.
