One Aisha Isa,has been arrested by the Nasarawa State police has arrested for allegedly drowning the two daughters of her husband’s first wife.
The two girls, 4-year-old Zainab and Ramatu, 2, were bound, hands and feet, and allegedly thrown into a well by Aisha and they drowned in Yelwabassa village, Kokona LGA, Nasarawa State.
Aisha claimed, in a confessional statement to the police, that she committed the alleged homicidal act because the mother of the two little girls forbade them from running errands for her.
In April 2017, Aisha killed the first victim, Ramatu, whose hands and legs she tied and threw into the well, where the little child died. The family simply buried her corpse and nobody found out how it happened.
But nemesis caught up with her when she did the same thing to Zainab in August.
Aisha, who lost her own six-month-old baby gave a chilling account of what happened.
“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 into the well.
After sometime I raised alarm, I shouted and attracted the attention of neighbours. My husband and the first wife rushed out. They asked what happened and I confessed immediately to them what I did.
I have been having misunderstanding with my co-wife. She caused the problem. Whenever I sent the children on errand, she would tell them in my presence not to run errands for me.
So, each time I called them, they ignored me. I decided to teach her children a lesson. I got married six years ago. I gave birth to a baby six-months ago, but the baby died.
Since then I had no baby and I have been telling Allah to give another baby. I want the family to forgive me for what I did; I have regretted my mistake and want my husband to forgive me.”
