A 22-year-old housewife, Harela Uba, has been arrested for allegedly killing the 3-day-old baby boy of her husband’s second wife in Shakodna, Niger State.
She was arrested after their husband, Uba Saidu, reported the matter to the police.
According to him, his second wife, Fa’iza, had gone to the bathroom and left her three-day-old baby boy in her room, but when she returned, she discovered white foam coming out from his mouth.
He was immediately rushed to General Hospital, Kuta, where he was confirmed dead. The Police then invited Harela, who is eight-month pregnant, for questioning, being the only one at home when the incident happened.
Upon interrogation, the suspect confessed to giving her 7-year-old daughter, Khadija, a poisonous substance to administer on the child.
