Housewife, 18, allegedly stabbed husband to death to avoid defilement

A housewife has allegedly stabbed her husband to death in Bauchi.

The woman identified as Salma Hassan is said to have allegedly stabbed him to death because she didn’t know that sex was a marital obligation.

Salma,18,  who is being detained by the Police Command in Bauchi, told newsmen that she killed her husband, Mohammed Mustafa because she thought he was “just trying to defile me”.

“I didn’t know that sex is a marital obligation. On that day, when he approached me for sex, I refused because I have never been involved in it before.

“I thought he wanted to rape me but he got angry and was trying to force himself on me. He started beating me.

“I picked up a knife to scare him away but he kept coming and I didn’t know when I stabbed him with the knife in his chest,” she said.

Salma further explained that she had already given her statement to the Police and did not know what would become her fate.

“I wouldn’t have done it if I knew better about marital obligations,” she claimed.

“The suspect was arrested and has confessed to the crime. Exhibit recovered from the suspect was one knife,” he said.

While answering questions from Journalists, Salma said she stabbed her man because she didn’t know that sex was just another part of marriage.

Man caught with 65 capsules of cocaine, heroin in Malta refuses deportation to Nigeria, wants Spain instead

Joseph Feilazoo has petitioned the European Court of Human Rights, claiming that his human rights were being infringed upon by Malta.
Joseph Feilazoo has petitioned the European Court of Human Rights, claiming that his human rights were being infringed upon by Malta.

An ex-convict hoping to leave Malta after serving a sentence for drug trafficking says he has found himself in legal limbo after refusing to be deported back to his native Nigeria, insisting on being sent to Spain instead.

To stop his deportation, Joseph Feilazoo has petitioned the European Court of Human Rights, claiming that his human rights were being infringed upon by Malta.

Amongst other things, Feilazoo complained of “excessive use of force by correctional officers, against whom he had proceedings pending, as a result of which he was charged with crimes he did not commit, as opposed to being treated as a victim, following a failure to protect him.”

His story begins in August 2008 when he had originally been arrested at the airport upon arriving on a ClickAir flight from Spain with 65 capsules containing 912g of cocaine, 25g of heroin and almost 6g of cannabis, hidden in his stomach and rectum.

Feilazoo had been convicted of drug trafficking by a jury in 2010, being jailed for 12 years and fined €50,000 for conspiring to import, importing and trafficking in the drugs.

24 additional months were later added to his jail sentence after he failed to pay the fine or the costs of the case.

The drug trafficker had some success with the courts in 2015, having filed a judicial protest, claiming that his belongings had been stolen from him upon his admission to prison, eventually being awarded €1,500 in compensation for this by the Small Claims Tribunal.

But he was subsequently jailed again in 2019, fined €5,000 and declared an illegal immigrant after attacking and biting prison warders after he was informed that he would be deported to Nigeria at the end of his sentence.

Feilazoo had wanted to be deported to Spain where he had been legally residing before coming to Malta, but his papers had expired and the Spanish authorities are refusing to renew them.

Feilazoo was later released from prison after serving his sentences and placed in immigration detention pending his repatriation to Nigeria. Legal sources say that this has now been stalled by his petition to the ECHR.

He is claiming that his being held in immigration detention is unlawful and in breach of his human rights since there were no prospects of his deportation.

The most disheartening thing, Feilazoo said, was that he was expecting to be a free man after his release from prison, only to find himself detained indefinitely at Hal Safi as he had no status in Malta.
