The wicked stepmother who castrated and brutalized a two-year-old boy in Kano State has been arrested by the police.
Arrested alongside Zainab is her co-wife, Hafsatu, who is alleged to have abetted her in the hideous crime against the boy who mother had separated from the father, leaving him in their care.
It was gathered that the father of the boy, identified as Murtala Musa of Gulu town in Rimin Gado Local Government Area of the state, had divorced the mother of the child said to be his third wife, and refused to allow her take the boy along with her.
Musa, however, handed the boy over to his senior wife, Zainab, to take care of, but unknown to him, the boy suffered severe torture from the two wives because he was not theirs and could not tell his father what he was going through because he could not talk.
Confirming the arrest of the two women, the State Police Public Relations Officer ( PPRO), DSP Magaji Majiya, said the two women would be charged to court as soon as possible.
“When the women’s husband, Murtala Musa, came back home about 8pm, he met his two-year-boy laying in critical condition.
On seeing the condition of the boy, Musa rushed him to the hospital where it was confirmed that his legs were broken and that blood was oozing from his nose and ears, while doctors said he might have problems with his eyes.”
