Daily Trust reports that the Public Relations Officer of the Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital in Gusau, Awwal Usman Ruwan Doruwa, confirmed that the man, Bilyaminu Yusuf, was brought to the hospital and was responding to treatment.
“I saw the patient when he was brought here and he could not talk because he was in a serious condition. His inner wears were stained with blood. His brothers told me that the couple had misunderstanding when he refused to secure a bail for her brother who was in detention at the police station and the wife became angry and stabbed him,” Doruwa said.
Another source told the news outlet that the couple got married about eight years ago but had been childless since then.
