A Nigeria woman, Fatima Mohamid Khalil, in a shocking revelation, has narrated how her Saudi Arabian husband allegedly slaughtered their three daughters on Sunday in Al-Rawdah District, Makkah.
According to the woman, her daughters were sleeping with her in the main bedroom when their father woke them up quite early.
“This was an unusual act, but when I asked him why, he said that his father was coming to visit and that his three daughters needed to say hello to their grandfather.” According to the Saudi Gazette, the woman said her husband took the three daughters to another room.
I was shocked to see my middle daughter Rimaz in his hands soaked in her blood after he had slaughtered her with a knife. I tried to rescue her, but he pushed me away; I fell down.
When I got up, he had already slaughtered our eldest and the youngest daughters.” The woman said that she tried to go out, but discovered that the door had locked.
He acted as if nothing happened
“He went out as if nothing had happened. I started crying and neighbours came, but it was too late.” Fatima recalled that two weeks before the fateful day, her husband woke her up in the middle of the night and asked her to go to her grandmother’s house.
He said that he would mind the three girls. Later, the girls cried, asking for their mother. Our neighbours heard their cries and informed the police, who came and arrested him, but he was soon released on bail.” She said
Fatima said the police brought her daughters to her at her grandmother’s house and their father started visiting them every day for about two weeks.
“He took me back to his apartment with our daughters the night of the incident.
This was just a few hours before he committed his heinous crime.”
The police believe that the man is a drug addict. Fatima is an orphan, who lost both her parents at an early age. She was brought up by her grandmother and an aunt.
