Tragedy struck at Ungwa Medile, Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano  State, Wednesday, when Zainab Idris Yakasai, a newly married  wife of the state’s Director of Information, Youth and Home Affairs, Inuwa Idris,  was found dead at her residence barely 10 days after marriage.

Security sources that pleaded anonymity revealed that the young woman was strangled by yet-to-be identified assailant at her home while the husband was away to work.

Idris, the deceased’s hubby who gave a vivid account of what he found in his house amid tears said:  “The incident happened on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, at about 5:30p.m. When I returned after closing from work, I knocked at the gate but my wife didn’t open it for me as she used to do.”

He added that when he entered his premises and called his wife’s name, she didn’t answer. He walked around the fence and found a ladder but the security wire around the fence was cut.

The bereaved husband also said he saw her lying on the ground when he peeped through the window and rushed to call his neighbours for help.

He said: “When I opened the window, I just saw her lying on the ground like she was sleeping. I rushed into the room and tapped her. To my surprise, I found her like a dead person. I then went to the neighbours for help.

He said the assailants carted away her boxes that contained clothing materials and jewelry.

The Kano State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Musa Magaji Majjia confirmed the incident, saying the husband of the deceased reported the matter to the police.

Majjia added that the police went to the scene of the incident and some arrests were made.

He said investigation was on to apprehend the main suspect, adding that the  corpse had been deposited at the hospital for autopsy.
