Woman arrested for killing step son
The Zamfara State Police Command has arrested one Abu Adamu Aliyu for allegedly killing the three-year-old baby of her co-wife in Kizara village of Tsafe Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that Abu and the other woman, Bilkisu have not been in good terms for a long time.
It was also gathered that all efforts by the husband and neighbours to settle the women failed. Witnesses said the incident occurred during an argument. They alleged that during the quarrel, Abu grabbed the baby from his mother’s back and smashed him against the wall.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Lawal Abdullahi, said the accused is police custody and that she would be charged to court as soon as investigation into the matter is concluded.
