A woman was arrested on a charge of attempted murder after allegedly stabbing her husband because he spent too much time with his first wife, according to police in Nigeria.
Zamfara police said that they have arrested Amina Maru, after she was accused of stabbing her husband three times in the chest and stomach.
According to the police investigation, the husband, who was not identified, is married to three women. Maru was jealous that her husband was spending more time with his senior wife.
Recently, the husband gave his first wife a new car, prompting Maru to seek revenge. On the night of the incident, the husband was supposed to spend time with Maru, but got held up at work.
When he came home, he was very tired and went to sleep.
Maru, who believed that her husband went to spend the night with his first wife, took a knife and stabbed her husband three times.
The incident unfolded on Sunday. The husband was rushed to a hospital, where he is being treated. Doctors expect him to recover.
