Why I Gave My Husband Rat Poison – 15-Year-Old Wife
“I bought rat poison for N40 which I put inside the rice and beans which I served him (the husband) that day. I never loved him; I was betrothed to him by my uncle".
An unhappy housewife, Dausiya Abdulmuminu, said this why explaining why she decided to end the life of her husband prematurely.
The teenage wife, who was paraded by the police on Saturday, told newsmen that she was forced into a marriage despite her protest.
According to her, the late husband was involved in a car accident two weeks after the wedding, a development, she claimed, made him to suffer mental imbalance.
Dausiya narrated that she bought the poison for N40 and sprinkled it on the plate of rice and beans she served the husband, resulting in his death and that of her half-brother who incidentally ate from the meal.
