14-year-old Bride Kills Husband With Rat Poison

WasilaA Nigerian child-bride, 14 year-old Wasila Umaru, recently killed her 35 year-old husband, after being forced to marry him.

After the wedding, the groom, Sani Umaru invited some friends to celebrate in Ungwar Yansoro village, which is close to the city of Kano. However, during the festivities, Wasila slipped some rat poison into the rice that was being served, Dailymail reports.

Her husband, along with some of his friends, died that same day.

Wasila is reportedly cooperating with the police, and may be charged with culpable homicide.

According to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), fifty percent of Nigerian girls who live in rural areas get married before age 18.

  1. Well murdering would not have been the best option but when you look at the picture this is just a mere kid who was not ready for that kind of responsibility.

  2. Mathematically, “Child – Wasila” is 21 years younger than “Old – Sani”. People, isn’t this crazy? Big lession to Nigerian parents.

  3. he deserved it……….let police arrest the parents of a girl instead of her. but God have mercy on this planet earth…i pray…. Amen!!
