A Nigerian woman has sent shock waves across the social media landscape after she reportedly killed her two children simply because her husband opted to marry a second wife.
The incident happened in Kano State, Nigeria. The deceased kids have been identified as Yusuf, 5, and 3-year-old Zahra’u.
One Sadiq Haruna Aminu who happens to be the uncle of the deceased confirmed the unfortunate incident to reporters while maintaining that indeed his sister-in-law committed the dastardly act because she was so jealous about the second wife her husband married.
He has this to say;
The incident happened when the husband was away and in his new wife’s place. His eldest wife, Hauwau ‘called him on phone this morning that all was not well in their house only for him to return to the house and meet the lifeless bodies of the children in the pool of blood. She carried out the atrocities and ran away from the house.
He further added;
She beat the children and used knife to cut them. Her sister’s daughter (10-year-old) who was living with them was another victim but she survived with cuts on her hand and she is the witness when the incident happened. We don’t know her whereabouts at the moment because we spoke with security operatives. We learnt she went to her parent’s house.
