A 20-year-old housewife, Zulac Kabiru, was on Tuesday arrested by the police in Niger State for allegedly killing her eight-month-old step daughter at Danauta village in the Mariga Local Government Area of the state.
The New Telegraph gathered that the suspect administered the locally made insecticide popularly known as ‘ota-piapia’ to the eight Month baby of her husband’s second wife, Rukaiya Kabiru, leading to her death.
Our Correspondent learnt that the suspect had secretly given the baby insecticide to drink on Sunday 9th September 2018.
Findings have it that the suspect and her fellow wife had been having issues that they couldn’t resolve until the heinous act was perpetrated.
The incident ut was gathered was reported to the Police by their husband Kabiru Labbo after he alerted the police operatives in Bangi Division of the development thereby leading to the arrest of the suspect.
The suspect told our correspondent that since her husband married his second wife there had been a lot of unresolved issues on daily basis in the family.
According to her, “I warned my husband to desist from getting another wife in the family but he would not listen. The second wife was in the habit of insulting and assaulting me at all times and one day I decided to poison her daughter to death to increase her sorrow in the family so that she will learn how to respect her superior in the family.
“You see before my husband married her, I kicked against it, we have been living in peace but when she came into the house, she divided the family.
“My husband gave her more attention than myself and since then our family had been in shambles.”
When asked if she felt any remorse for allegedly killing her stepdaughter, Zulac said, “it was the work of devil, I don’t know when I did it. Believe me, it is a wicked act”.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect had confessed to the crime and regretted her actions.
