Angry Woman Murders Her Pregnant Co-Wife


Angry Woman Murders Her Pregnant Co-Wife

For the alleged murder of her co-wife, Adizat, at her home in Alejo Street, Ijede, in the Ikorodu region of Lagos State, Fatima Rahman, 42, of the Chad Republic has been remanded to the Ikoyi Custodial Centre.

It is the wounds of the heart that hurt

Fatima was charged with one count of murder on Tuesday in a Magistrates’ Court in Yaba before Magistrate P. E. Nwaka. When she found out that her husband had taken another wife, she is believed to have become upset.

She apparently pretended to be a nurse when she went to the pregnant woman’s home and stabbed her to death.

Deep cuts were discovered on the deceased’s neck and head, and a neighbor who observed her enter the house is claimed to have implicated her.

Thomas Nurudeen, the prosecution, claims that the defendant committed the crime at 43, Alejo Street, Ijede Road, Ikorodu, Lagos State, on April 9, 2023, at around 12:40 p.m.

The statement read, “That you, Fatima Abdul Rahman, on April 9, 2023, around 12.40 pm, at 43, Alero Street, Ijede Road, Ikorodu, Lagos State in the Lagos Magisterial District did unlawfully kill one Adizat Abdul Rahman, 28-year-old, by stabbing her with a knife and thereby committed an offense contrary to Section 222 and punishable under Section 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2015.”

However, the defendant’s plea was not accepted.

In order to receive legal counsel from the Directorate of Public Prosecution, the prosecution asked the court to remand the defendant to a detention facility.

The request was granted, and Nwaka remanded the woman to the Ikoyi Custodial Center seeking legal counsel.

Nwaka also postponed the case’s trial date to May 25, 2023.

Most women can’t bear to see their husbands in the arms of another woman right under the same roof let alone a co-wife. But in all, being jealous and killing a fellow human is unacceptable.
