    It was a painful end for a 22-year-old housewife, Aisha Abdullahi, who was raped to death by unknown person(s) at her matrimonial home at Ungogo quarters, on the outskirts of Kano metropolis.

    Police spokesman in Kano, DSP Musa Magaji Majia, told reporters in Kano that the incident, which occurred yesterday, was reported by the deceased’s husband.

    Police said Abdullahi Muhammad, husband of late Aisha, reported that he met the deceased in a pool of her blood when he returned home.

    DSP Majiya said detectives had commenced investigation to unravel the mystery behind the act, stressing that no stone would be left unturned.

    Wednesday’s murder of Aisha Abdullahi brought to the fore safety concerns among women in the city as a similar incident was recorded a couple of weeks ago, when one Khadija Muhammad of Ja’in quarters was also killed in her home.

    Already, two suspects, Nura and Haruna, are in court facing charges in respect of Khadija Muhammad’s death.

    The latest incident generated condemnation by residents, as prayers had been held in several worship centres for divine intervention.

    A similar incident occurred at Unguwar Katsina of Ungogo LGA last December. (Vanguard)
