A Niger state, 14-year old girl, Aisha Isah, has been arrested for killing her 40-year-old husband, Isiaka Usman, for not providing her needs. Though under aged, Aisha was married off to Isiaka five months ago.
DAILYPOST reported that the teenage girl who got married five months ago had been complaining of starvation and maltreatment to her husband who, already had two wives.
… When I confronted him, he slapped me and out of anger, I hit him on the forehead with a pestle and he collapsed and died.
My husband had the habit of not giving us money for food and each time we (the wives) confront him, he would tell us to go to our parents’ home and eat. He never cared about us; he beat us every time we demanded money for food.
My mate was not around; it was only me and my late husband that was in the house at the time of the incident. I picked a pestle and hit him, he fell on the ground and I ran to my mother’s house at Kahigu Village in Mashegu council.
I am sorry for what happened, it is the devil’s work and I pray my parents will forgive me; I never knew that he would die, I regretted all my actions.
