Housewife throws step daughters into a Well in Nassarawa

The Police Command in Nasarawa State has arrested a 20-year-old housewife, Aisha Isah, for allegedly throwing into a well her two stepdaughters, Zainab 4, and Baaba 2, over a disagreement with her co-wife.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, Kennedy Idirisu, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Lafia.

Mr. Idirisu said that the suspect was arrested from Yelwan-Bassa village in Kokona Local Government Area following a report of the incident.

He said the suspect had confessed to the crime and expressed remorse over her action.

He said an investigation revealed that Aisha, who is the second wife of Alhaji Isah, was always at loggerhead with the first wife, Maimuna, and that all efforts by their husband to settle their differences were unsuccessful.
The spokesperson said Aisha claimed that the first wife was always instigating her children not to run errands for her, a development that infuriated her since she had no child of her own.

That she had given birth to a baby girl in 2016, but the baby died after six months.He said Aisha had thrown baby Baaba into the well in April but since no one saw her, the family believed the baby accidentally fell into the well and died.

On August 26, the police spokesperson said, Aisha raised alarm that another child, Zainab, had fallen into the well and the husband dashed into the well to rescue the baby.

He said the husband brought out the baby dead with her hands tied, which drew suspicion from the family and villagers leading to the arrest of Aisha. According to him, Aisha later confessed to the crime and also accepted responsibility for the death of baby Baaba in April.

He said the suspect would be prosecuted as soon as an investigation into the matter was concluded.
