A Nigerian man, Habib Suleiman, has said he still wants to marry his fiancée, Fatima Danjuma, even after she stabbed him with a knife.
According to the young man, who is a resident of Unguwan Rogo in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State, Fatima stabbed him out of jealousy, after she saw him walking with another lady whom she suspected was his side-chic. He however clarified that the said lady was his friend’s younger sister.
On Tuesday, December 2, Fatima was arrested by the state police command but Habib insists on marrying her despite what transpired between them.
Narrating the incident, Habib said,
“When she saw me and the girl while she was passing with her friend, I noticed she was angry and when I called her name she refused to answer because she was very jealous.
I didn’t know that after seeing me with the girl, she stopped at a neighbour’s house and collected a knife. All of a sudden, she stabbed me. From there, I was taken to hospital.
But despite the incident, I still love Fatima. I still want to marry her. What happened was just a destiny because it can happen to anyone. We love each other so much. I think she was angry and that was why she stabbed me.
She has regretted and pleaded with me to forgive her and I have forgiven her. If there is anything that one can do, it is to help me plead with my parents to allow me to marry her, I will be very grateful.
And to show her that I am still interested in her, even after I was discharged from the hospital, I visited her at the police station to show my sympathy.”
Habib’s parents have kicked against the wedding for fear that Fatimi might kill Habib someday.
