Salma Hassan, 18, allegedly stabbed her husband to death.
The suspect claims she has no idea that sex was a marital obligation.
Salsa had stabbed her husband in the chest while he tried to have his way with her.
Salma, has now been detained by the Police in Bauchi.
The suspect while answering questions from journalists said 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 confessed.
“I wouldn’t have done it if I knew better about marital obligations,” she claimed.
“I thought he was just trying to defile me. No one told me about this aspect of marital union,” the young woman said.
Philip Maku, the Police Commissioner in Bauchi state, also showed reporters the knife allegedly used by Salma to commit the crime at her home in Itas-Gadau Local Government Area in Bauchi where she was arrested thereafter.
