Dausiya Abdulmumini, a 15-year-old Katsina housewife has confessed that she killed her husband, 27-year-old Saminu Usman and her half-brother with N40 rat poison in Ungwar Dan Mayaki village, Bakori local government area of Katsina State.
According to her, she used the substance because she does not love him.
Dausiya Abdulmumini alongside other suspects arrested for various forms of crimes and criminal offence were paraded by the State Commissioner of Police, CP Besen Gwana, at the police headquarters over the weekend.
Dausiya confessed to having murdered her husband, Usman, after adding poisoned substance to the dish she served him.
Her half-brother, Muhammad Dasa also died after eating the leftover poisoned meal.
However, her 23-year-old sister-in-law, Shafa’atu Usman, who ate three spoons of the dish, luckily survived the incident.
Dausiya said she committed the act because she was forced to marry Saminu whereas she was in love with someone else.
