Bride-to-be punched to death three days to her wedding



Tragedy struck in Keffi area of Nassarrawa penultimate Wednesday after a man identified as Hamisu allegedly beat her cousin, a woman by name, Aminat Abdullahi to death, three days to her wedding.

Hamisu, who is a younger brother to Aminat’s mother was said to have loaned his sister a sum of N100 which she did not refund as agreed.

According to sources, a visibly upset Hamisu visited his sister’s residence to collect the debt.

Aminat’s mother, however, rebuked Hamisu’s visit to her residence in the early hours of the day over a ’paltry’ N100 debt.

Her comment drew Hamisu’s anger prompting him to rain abuses on his sister.

The situation degenerated into an altercation during which Aminat rushed out of their residence and reprimanded Hamisu for unguarded remarks.

Hamisu who could not stand his niece's remarks allegedly seized her and punched her till she fell into a coma, The Nation reports.

All efforts made to revive the bride-to-be failed as she was confirmed dead by doctors at a nearby hospital. 

A source said: ‘’Hamisu was talking rudely to Aminat’s mother when she (Aminat) confronted him and asked him to stop harassing her mother. 

Her (Aminat) comments drew the wrath of Hamisu who landed several punches on her following which she slumped and could not be revived.

‘’Hamisu tried to run away but Aminat’s mother held him by his trousers until the arrival of policemen who took him away to their station. It was unfortunate that the girl was killed just three days away from her wedding.’’

Hamisu was taken to a nearby police division in Keffi.

When contacted, the State’s Police Commissioner Mr. Bello Abubakar said the case was not reported to the police.
