Man kills pregnant woman with scissors over an argument

A man in Kogi state, Hussain Zubairu has been arrested by the police for allegedly stabbing his pregnant neighbor to death over an argument.

The suspect lived in the Idogido community of Okene Local Government Area of the state and was said to have stabbed his victim in the stomach with a pair of scissors.

The woman was rushed to the hospital following the unfortunate incident but died before any real medical help could be given to her.

According to Punch newspaper, Zubairu had interfered in a discussion between the victim and her friend about a lost phone.

The victim had warned Zubairu not to interfere in her discussion and a scuffle had ensued.

Zubairu, enraged, had reportedly pounced on the woman with a pair of scissors and stabbed her.

A police source told Punch that the suspect was described as violent by some residents of the area also adding that some neighbours claimed he was on drugs.

The source said, “Many residents within that area said he was a drug addict but that has not been confirmed. I learnt the woman (Muhammed) had always been trying to avoid him because he was troublesome.

“On that day, the victim and her friend were chatting and he interrupted.

“She told him to mind his business and that infuriated him. He removed a pair of scissors he hid in his trousers, stabbed her in the stomach and fled.

“The woman lost a lot of blood. She was pronounced dead on getting to the hospital. She was pregnant, but was not living with her husband.”

Zubairu was afterwards arrested by detectives from the Okene Police Division while the victim had already been buried according to Islamic rites.

Confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer, Kogi State Police Command, ASP Willy Aya said, “The suspect and the deceased were neighbours. There was an argument between them. A friend of the deceased lost a mobile phone, which she later found.

“The friend was discussing the issue with the deceased when the suspect interrupted. She (Muhammed) challenged him for doing so and it degenerated into an argument.

“In the process, the suspect used a pair of scissors to stab her. Before she was rushed to the hospital, she died. The case has been transferred to the SCID and the suspect will be charged to court soon.”
