According to P.M. Express, the late Faruok had complained that his wife poisoned his food which affected his health that had deteriorated all because she wanted to continue with her secret romance with their landlord, an allegation Amina denied.
According to the report, the deceased and the wife had only one child and they have been having constant quarrel.
