26-year-old Kano Housewife Hauwau Habibu reportedly killed her two youngsters and injured a niece, claims hallucination and paranoia, says she was not aware that she committed murder.
Hauwau Habibu who reportedly killed her two children in Kano says hallucinations and paranoia made her commit the heinous act.
On Sunday, October 4, news filtered in that the 26-year-old household has been arrested on after she hacked her 6-year- old son, Yusuf ‘Irfan’ Ibrahim,m and 3-year old daughter, Zuhura Ibrahim to death a machete and aluminum pestle. She also severely maimed her 10-year old niece, Aisha Sadiq.
The weird event occurred at Diso Quarters, Gwale Local Government Area of Kano State, Nigeria on Saturday, October 3.
Hauwau Habibu, talking to the press at the Kano command headquarters, alleged that she was hallucinating and saw her young children assaulting her.
“I am not even aware I killed my children. I saw my son and daughter attacking me a knife and another weapon.
I called my husband and told him what was happening but he didn’t believe me. So I locked the house and escaped to my mother’s house for safety.
The next thing I know was my husband coming to my mother’s house bloodied clothes saying I killed the children.” Hauwau Habibu stated.
The suspect also added she had been mentally ill for a long time.
“I used to feel I was being pursued. I even hallucinate a lot but my husband never believed me.
Even he himself, I used to see him transforming into a beast hooves instead of legs,” she claimed.
My wife is neither possessed nor suffering from mental illness, husband Ibrahim Haruna Aminu says about Killer wife Hauwau Habibu.
Hauwau Habibu’s husband and father of the deceased kids, Ibrahim Haruna Aminu, who married a new wife three months ago, debunked her claim of being mentally ill.
“My wife is neither possessed nor suffering from mental illness. That is why the incident touched us seriously because we know she is well and not possessed. Whoever said she is possessed by spirits or has a mental illness is lying,” he said.
Aminu admitted that his union Hauwau Habibu became estranged when he took a new wife.
He however refuted that she killed their two kids over squabbles his second wife.
“When I married a second wife, three months ago, she congratulated and celebrated me. She even posted my wedding pictures on the social media,” he said.
Narrating how the incident happened, Aminu said he was his second wife on that fateful day when he got a call from Hauwau Habibu.
“I was in my other house in Sharada when she called me on Saturday morning that somebody wanted to kill her. I rushed home and found the door closed. I knocked but nobody opened so I used my key and open the door,” he said.
“To my shock, I saw my children slaughtered, lying in pools of their blood. It was later we realized her niece who was also hacked was not dead.
After killing the children, she (Hauwau Habibu) fled to her mother’s house and I traced her there. I asked her mother whether she knew what had happened.
I then grabbed my wife’s hand and took her to her father’s house at Galadanchi. From there we reported her to the police at the Gwale divisional office.”
Aminu narrated further: “A day before the incident, while I was bidding her farewell as I set out to my other house, she asked me whether I was well. I asked her: ‘why are you asking?’’ and she said she was hallucinating but couldn’t tell what she was seeing.
“She called on Saturday around 9:55 am saying two women and a man were threatening to kill her. I asked of the children and she said they were the ones threatening her.
So I told her to keep praying and I’ll be her after it stopped raining. I called her back five minutes later and spoke the children. The children asked for Bobo drink and I told them to tell their mother to fetch some for them,”
“I then set out for the house but my car developed a problem. I had to call a friend to tow the car to the mechanics. When I arrived I found the door locked and nobody opened it when I knocked.
I, therefore, used my key to open and found my children lying dead. The other girl, who was also stabbed, told me my wife killed them. When I told her mother what she did, the mother started crying while my wife kept asking ‘what happened?’,” he added.
Meanwhile, Police spokesman, Abdullahi Haruna said the suspect Hauwau Habibu would be moved to the Criminal Investigations Department.
