One middle-aged woman simply identified as Sadiya has passed away after the physical and psychological abuse she suffered from her husband.

Sadiya was said to have been incarcerated and deprived of food by her husband for a year in Nguru, Yobe State.

A mother of four, Sadiya was rescued by her mother Hadiza after she suspected foul play whenever she tried to reach her daughter on phone.
