One Maryam Habibu, 18, has been arrested and paraded by the Katsina State Police Command, on Friday, for throwing her ex-husband’s four-year-old stepson, Jamilu Rabi’u, inside a well.
The action of the divorcee eventually led to the death of her stepson.
The divorcee is a resident of Leko village in Danja LGA of Katsina State.
According to the spokesman of the Katsina Police Command, SP Gambo Isah, “the suspect went to the house of her ex-husband and lured the little boy into a nearby area and threw him inside the well, killing him.”
While being quizzed before the press, Maryam said she had earlier used a hoe on her husband’s first wife and the case is still in court.
Admitting that she once burnt the mattress bought for her mate by her husband, she explained that it was because he failed to buy for her too.
