Woman arrested for killing her a four-year-old stepdaughter with rat poison in Katsina

Aisha Abubakar, a housewife in Katsina state, was detained by law enforcement for reportedly using rat poison on Tuesday, August 17 to kill her four-year-old stepdaughter and namesake, Aisha, in Rimi in the Rimi Local Government Area of the state.

Residents of the neighborhood claim that Aisha and the mother of the deceased were at odds when she consented to be her husband’s second wife. She made the decision to harm the mother by killing the child.

Aisha claimed she killed the young girl when her mother went on vacation when she was apprehended.

“Her mother travelled and left her in my care, that was how I took the advantage and added rat poison into her food.

I’d been bitter for over four years because before my husband took the deceased person’s mother as his second wife, he sent me packing before he later restored our marriage.

I killed her to vent my anger and to punish her mother and my husband put together for traumatising me” she said

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for the state police command, SP Gambo Isa said the matter will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is completed.
