Emani Kure, a 16-year-old girl, has committed a horrendous act by killing her father in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The hapless man, 40-year-old Kusha Kure, met his untimely end because he opposed the desire of his teenage daughter to marry a particular man, and therefore withheld his consent to the proposed marriage.
Emani and her fiancé, Nasiru Musa, had been dating for about two years in Karavan village, Bwari Area Council of Abuja and had expressed the desire to marry.
The Sun gathered from the police that the ugly incident happened on March 11, 2018 around 3:00am.
Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sadiq Bello, said that matter was later reported at the Bwari Police Division. On March 13, homicide detectives arrested Emanu and her mother, Asabe Kure, who she had claimed played a role in the murder. They were later transferred with the case file to FCT Criminal Investigation Department at the headquarters of the command.
In an interview with The Sun, Emani made the shocking revelation on how the incident happened.
“After killing him, I ran away to the house of my friend, Regina. The incident was reported to the police at Bwari Police Division. Nasiru did not know that I wanted to kill my father. He was shocked when he heard that I killed my father.”
On her own part, 35-year-old Asabe, wife of the deceased, flatly denied the allegations made by her daughter.
Twenty-four-year-old Nasiru, who is accused of complicity in the murder case gave his account of what transpired: “I wanted to marry Emani Kure as my second wife. I already have a wife and we have one child. I have known Emani for two years. Her father did not agree to my marrying her. I didn’t know that Emani was planning to kill her father. I was not aware. I was shocked when I heard that Emani killed her father. I went on condolence visit to the family and even assisted in searching for her, before she was arrested.
“Emani confessed to the police that she killed her father and even said that it was her mother who instructed her to kill the father. I was shocked that the mother accused me of killing the husband. I didn’t have a plan to kill her husband.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of State Criminal Investigation Department, Mr. Mohammed Ciroma, who spoke with The Sun, disclosed that detectives had recovered the cutlass allegedly used by Emani to kill her father.
Meanwhile, the trio of Emani, her mother and Nasiru are still in police custody as detectives continue with the investigation.
