A woman has been arrested for killing her step son in Osun State.
The woman identified as Miriam Musa, a 24-year-old housewife, has been arrested for poisoning her stepson because her husband cared more for the boy’s mother.
During the parade by the Osun State command, the suspect confessed that she poured insecticide into the three-year-old boy, Rokeeb’s mouth and he eventually died as a result.
Miriam confirmed and confessed the crime to her husband.
When asked why she poisoned the boy, Mrs Musa said the mother of the deceased is her husband’s favourite and that made her very jealous.
“I killed the son of my husband’s second wife because of jealousy and greed. Our husband was taking care of her mother because she has a male child. I eventually felt remorse after killing the boy.”
According to PREMIUM TIMES report, the killing occurred in Ede area of the state on December 29, 2020.
