The local security forces of Port Said quickly intervened and were able to apprehend the main suspect, based on information provided by his accomplice. Subsequent investigations revealed the harrowing truth – the assailant was Farida’s brother, Mohamed Nabil. At the age of 24, Farida was planning to get engaged to a man without her brother’s consent, which apparently infuriated Mohamed.

The victim, identified as Fareeda Nabil, was a 24-year-old woman working in a wedding dress boutique in a tourist village in Port Said province.

She had recently started a romantic relationship with a young man and their relationship had blossomed into an engagement. Investigations showed that Mohamed had disapproved of this engagement, demanding its termination. When Farida refused, he decided to take the drastic step of ending her life.

Eyewitnesses at the scene reported that two individuals, including her brother, on a motorbike ambushed Fareeda as she was walking on the street in front of the mosque. Her brother attacked her with a sharp weapon, slashing her throat and leaving her to die. They fled the scene immediately after committing the gruesome act.

Local authorities swiftly responded to the incident, and the first suspect was apprehended with the assistance of the second individual, who provided information about his accomplice. Investigations revealed that the perpetrator was none other than Fareeda’s own brother, Mohamed Nabil.

Further inquiries uncovered that Mohamed Nabil had murdered his sister in protest of her engagement to another man without his consent. He had prepared a knife for this sinister purpose and, in the company of his accomplice, ambushed Fareeda as she was present at the crime scene. His brutal attack left her with a deep neck wound and a fatal stab wound to the heart, ultimately resulting in her death.

The local law enforcement received an alert regarding the murder, and General Mazen Sabri, the Assistant Minister of the Interior and Director of Security in Port Said was informed of the incident. Police officers quickly arrived at the scene and apprehended one of the suspects. A criminal investigation team was formed to carry out the necessary legal procedures, ensuring that the perpetrators faced the full extent of the law.

It was revealed during the course of the investigation that Mohamed Nabil’s family had distanced themselves from him for nearly a year due to his unstable mental state and his claim of atheism. This indicates that the family had no prior knowledge of his sinister intentions, and they were not involved in the tragic incident.

Violence Against Women in Egypt: A Growing Concern

The murder of Farida is not an isolated incident. According to a 2017 survey by the UN Women and Promundo, 58% of Egyptian women have experienced some form of physical violence in their lifetime. Furthermore, the Egyptian Demographic and Health Survey in 2014 reported that 30% of married women have been subjected to some form of domestic violence by their husbands.

The Aftermath and the Need for Change

The brutal murder has sent shockwaves throughout the Climate District in Port Said, raising numerous questions. This tragic event underscores the importance of addressing conflicts peacefully and the need for mental health awareness and intervention. As the investigation progresses, the community hopes for justice for Farida and her grieving family.
