33-Year-Old Housewife Dies After Being Locked Up By Her Husband for Months Without Food

Sadiya Salihu, 33, was fighting for her life after being imprisoned for months without food at the Aunty Zainab Nursing Home and Maternity in the Sheka neighborhood of Kano State. Sadiya Salihu has now passed away.

Salihu was said to have died on Saturday after she was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH).


The deceased, a mother of four, got married on April 24, 2010 to a businessman, Ibrahim Yunusa Bature, who locked her for several months resulting in hunger and illness.

Speaking about the incident, Sadiya’s mother, Hadiza Hassan, told Dailytrust, that she had to travel all the way from where she was to rescue her daughter from her husband.

She explained that: “I was experiencing nightmares about Sadiya for a long time and anytime I called her husband, he gave the phone to the children and they would lie when I requested to talk to her; that she was sleeping or that she was doing something else.

“At last, I travelled to Nguru. I was greeted by the children. I didn’t see their mother. So I peeped into her room through the window and behold she was there, just lying down; helpless.

“I forcefully took my daughter back home, and as you can see, she is not herself. When I inquired, I was told that the husband only fed her with pap and roasted hasbiya (wild dove). I had to wean her 11-month-old child because of her situation.

“We still can’t understand why pap every day, the hasbiya and a liquid mixture with bad odour being sprayed on her body. Look at her now. You can’t even comprehend what she is saying.”

She added that they were suspecting the husband to have used her daughter for ritual and was trying to starve her to death.

As of the filing of this report, late Sadiya’s husband was immediately arrested after the news of her demise came to the police notice.
