Sad News As Bride found murdered one week after marriage; throat and thigh cut
A 32-year-old lady was discovered dead in her home just one week after marrying her husband.
Muniratu Moro, a second wife, is claimed to have been discovered lifeless in a pool of blood at her marital house in Abeka on September 6, with a slash in her throat and thigh.
Munira Moro’s family revealed in an interview with Joy News that they believe she was murdered. Her brother, who believes it was manslaughter, said the family would fight any attempts to bury her quickly, as Muslim custom requires.
“I had a call around 9PM that my sister has been stabbed, so I thought I was going to see the body with small cut but when I got there, it was a different thing all together.
“She was killed in her room and then dragged into her rival’s room, the way she died was not natural and we need to know how she was murdered,” the brother of the deceased, Mohammed Samba said.
“…for you to live in the house like that even if you beat your, son, in your room your neighbour will hear it, for someone to be killed in that manner and dragged into a different room and nobody is telling us anything and you want us to bury her immediately after she died?
According to reports, the family has denied the husband’s family access to Muniratu’s body for burial because they want the police to perform an autopsy before she is buried.
Another family member said, “she was slaughtered like an animal, we can’t let it go.”
Meanwhile, police have arrested the first wife and husband of Muniratu and they are currently in police custody assisting with the police investigations.
