As she was paraded at the Police Command headquarters, Bauchi on Thursday, Hassan did not deny stabbing her husband, but said she stabbed him in the chest because he insisted on sleeping with her.
“I did not really mean to kill my husband, it was an accident. I stabbed him on the chest because he wanted to have carnal knowledge of me. I felt sex was a bad thing, so I objected to his advances.
