Habib Suleiman, a resident of Unguwan Rogo in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State, says he still wants to marry his fiancée, Fatima Danjuma, despite stabbing him with a knife.
On December 2, Fatima, a resident of Ali Kazaure, also in Jos North LGA, was arrested by the police after she stabbed Habib during a disagreement.
According to Habib, Fatima stabbed him when she saw him around her area walking with another girl whom she suspected was his girlfriend. He said the girl in question was a younger sister to his friend.
“When she saw me and the girl while she was passing with her friend, I noticed she was angry and when I called her name she refused to answer because she was very jealous.
I didn’t know that after seeing me with the girl, she stopped at a neighbour’s house and collected a knife. All of a sudden, she stabbed me. From there, I was taken to the hospital.
But despite the incident, I still love Fatima. I still want to marry her. What happened was just a destiny because it can happen to anyone. We love each other so much. I think she was angry and that was why she stabbed me.
She has regretted and pleaded with me to forgive her and I have forgiven her. If there is anything that one can do, it is to help me plead with my parents to allow me to marry her, I will be very grateful.
And to show her that I am still interested in her, even after I was discharged from the hospital, I visited her at the police station to show my sympathy,” Habib said.
