While being paraded on Tuesday by Osun State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, the suspect confessed that she poisoned the boy to death because her husband cared more for the boy’s mother.

Mariam, who is five months pregnant, said the mother of the deceased used to disrespect her because she was the favourite of their husband.

“Greed and jealousy made me kill the son of my husband’s second wife. She had a male child and I was not happy that our husband was showing her more care.

“We (My husband and I) used to eat from the same plate but now he treats me with disdain because I don’t have a male child. So, I poisoned the child because I became very jealous but I didn’t mean to kill him,” she said.

Mariam said after committing the act, she felt remorseful and confessed to her husband.

KanyiDaily had reported how a man committed suicide after killing his wife and son over ‘jealousy and infidelity’ in Lagos State.
