They had a three-year-old son together.

Daily Trust reports that the deceased had move out of her matrimonial home with her son after her marriage to Manu started experiencing bad patch when her father, who until his death in 2014, was a regional manager with a major bank in Sokoto, and she inherited part of his wealth.

She was said to have taken up residence in Low-Cost Housing Estate while Manu was visiting to see his son.

According to the report, Manu was always demanding money from the late mother-of-one, and threatening her.

“Manu had earlier been threatening Fatima for a while, and even on that fateful day he called to ask her to make available N800,000 for him to settle some debts. Mark you, she had always tried to let him know that the money he assumes she had was not in her custody, but he never wanted to hear that.

“But the next day, Fatima’s maid met her lifeless body on the bed with stab wounds and raised alarm,” the deceased uncle, Babangida Habibu told Daily Trust.
