Shehu Abdullahi has been publicly called out for battering his wife Sumayya Mustapha during a domestic dispute at their home in Sokoto last night.
According to Instablog9ja which broke the news, “Sumayya was on the phone with someone and cut the call when Shehu came into her room. However, when the phone rang again, she refused to pick it because the husband was always eavesdropping on her phone calls with friends and family. She claimed that, at times, Shehu would hide to record her conversations.”
This, apparently, wasn’t the first time they would get into a dispute due to the footballer’s penchant for suspicion. The blogger revealed that Shehu often accessed his wife’s phone whenever she was asleep, that he would read her chat and take shots of them. He would insist that she take her calls in his presence, and yesterday, she was having none of it.
And it was why when a second call came yesterday and she refused to take it due to how he was hovering around her, he violently attacked, injuring her eye.
While it is unclear if the victim filed a police report, their families reportedly had assembled to hold a meeting over this, as at press time.
