A 37-year-old lady, who was arrested earlier this week for stabbing her mother-in-law to death in Niger state, has given a reason for her action.
The suspect identified as Fatima Sani, reportedly stabbed her 70-year-old mother-in-law identified as Aishatu Umaru, following a misunderstanding with her husband Sani Umaru, which resulted in a divorce.
Fatima who was visibly unremorseful, told the police during interrogation, that she decided to stab her mother in-law because the deceased never liked her and did not give her peace since she got married to her son.
”Since I came into that family, I have not known anything called peace. Every day is punctuated with my mother-in-law’s trouble. There is nothing I did that pleased her and I decided to stab her to death so that everything would be over.
I know I have done something that even Allah will not forgive me, but let the law take its course. Since she did not want me to have peace in my matrimonial home, Allah will not set her free.”
