20-year-old jealous housewife, Aisha Isah, who reportedly threw her two step children Zainab and Ramatu aged 4 and 2 into the well, over a disagreement with their mother in Yelwabassa village in Kokona Local Government Part of Nasarawa State, is begging for forgiveness.
The lady who was simply arrested by the Nasarawa State Police Command, had this to state on her long issue with her co-wife in her 6-year-old marriage;
“It was the devil that used me. I took Ramatu, tied her two hands and legs and threw her into the well. In August 2017, I also took Zainab, tied her hands and legs and threw her in to the well. After sometime I raised alarm, I shouted and attracted the attention of neighbours. My hubby and the first wife rushed out. They asked what happened and I confessed instantly to them what I did so.
“I have already been having misunderstanding with my co-wife. She caused the situation. Whenever I sent the kids on errand, she would inform them in my presence not to run errands for me personally. So , every time I called them, they ignored me. I made a decision to teach her children a lesson.
“I got married six years back. I gave birth to a baby six-months ago, but the baby died. Since that time I had no baby and I have already been telling Allah to give yet another baby. ”
Sun reports that after she confessed to her husband, he quickly went with a neighbor to report the crime at the Garaku Police Station. The Deputy Commissioner of Police responsible for the State Criminal Investigation Department, Lafia, Mr. Mohammed Akeera said that the suspect will be charged to court soon for the alleged murder. However Aisha still has this to express;
“With the enormity of what she did having hit home, a sense of remorse has overwhelmed Aisha and she pleaded:
“I want the family to forgive me for what I did; I’ve regretted my mistake and want my hubby to forgive me. ”
