A man identified as Habib Suleiman, has said he plans to marry his fiancée, Fatima Danjuma, despite stabbing him with a knife.

Habib, resident of Unguwan Rogo in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State, explained that the unfortunate event happened after Fatima spotted him with another lady she suspects was his girlfriend.

He noted that the lady in question was his friend's younger sister.

However, Habib's parents insist that the wedding is off as they fear that Fatimah might kill him, should the marriage proceed.

Habib said,

“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 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.”
