A 16-year-old girl, Emani Kure, has been arrested by the Abuja police command, for hacking her 40-year-old father, Kusha Kure, to death at their home in Karavan on March 11th because he refused to allow her marry her 24-year-old married boyfriend, Nasiru Musa.
According to Sunnews, Emani and Musa, had been dating for about two years. When interrogated, Emani said: “I killed my father because he did not allow me marry my boyfriend.
My father has beaten me several times, to stop me from marrying Nasiru. Around 3.00am on March 11, my mother told me while we were sleeping outside, to go into my father’s room where he was sleeping.
She said that I should take his cutlass and kill him. I ran to where my father always keeps his cutlass and went to his room. I cut him on the neck with the cutlass while my mother held his leg.
After killing him, I ran away to the house of my friend, Regina. Nasiru did not know that I wanted to kill my father. He was shocked when he heard that I killed my father.” Wife of the decased, 35-year-old Asabe, who was alleged to have conspired with Emani to carry out the wicked act, denied any involvement. ”I went to the Bwari Police Division to report that my husband was killed in his room.
I told the police that I suspected my daughter and her boyfriend. Later the police arrested Nasiru and my daughter. She confessed to the crime but claimed that I gave her instruction to kill my husband. I was not involved in killing my husband.” she said.
