Saidat Naiga, a resident of Ggangu, Makindye Division, Kampala City, has been arrested this morning July, 25, 2021 by police on murder charges after she allegedly stabbed her husband identified as Siraj to death in a fight after he reportedly tried to send her out of their house at night when she denied him sex.
“It is allegedly that Naiga refused to fulfill the demands of the husband Siraj then he (Siraj) attempted to force her into sexual intercourses but failed. This provoked Siraj and pulled her out of the bed and attempted to throw her from the house. It was at this time that Naiga is said to have picked a knife and stabbed her husband to death,” Assistant Superintendent of Police Luke Owoyesigyire told the press on Sunday.
The mob who found Siraj already dead attacked Naiga. However, the police responded and saved her from the angry mob. She was taken to Katwe Police Station where she is being held.“We have since recovered the alleged murder weapon and exhibited it for analysis,” Owoyesigyire added.
