In Borno, a housewife poisons her husband to death and declares, "I hate marriage."
Fatima Abubakar, a 25-year-old housewife, has been detained by the Borno Police Command for the poisoning death of her husband, Goni Abbah.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abdu Umar, told the News men in Maiduguri on Sunday, October 30 that the suspect was captured by men of the Command at Anguwan Doki on October 19.

According to Umar, the suspect, the second wife, allegedly poisoned the victim after he returned from praying at the local mosque.

According to the CP, Goni's condition worsened as soon as he started eating.

Emergency medical care was reportedly administered at the scene before the victim was transferred to the State Specialist Hospital, but he tragically passed away back at the house.

As soon as the victim's family reported the crime to the GRA Police Station, the police commissioner sent agents from the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department to apprehend the perpetrator.

He said that when the police arrived, they saw a mob of angry local teenagers assault the victim's house with the purpose to lynch the suspect, but the situation was quickly brought under control.

He also noted that the suspect admitted guilt in her statement, saying that she had planned to murder him and had purchased the poison from Monday Market.

The head of the police department indicated that the case had been filed as culpable homicide with the D.A.'s office and that she will be charged in court soon.

When questioned by reporters, the suspect, Fatima, who had been paraded at the command, said that she had poisoned her husband because she was unhappy in the marriage.

I always knew that marriage was not something I desired. I loathe marriage, so I divorced my first spouse and married Goni instead," she remarked.

That fact that I am married always comes as a rude awakening to me. Eventually, I ran to my parents for help, pleading that they end the marriage. However, they repeatedly sent me back with the message to "please be patient."

"Approximately two months after giving birth, I escaped and hid out in a half-finished structure for about two weeks. It was only after some time that I went back to my husband's place.

"It's not that he treats me poorly, and we don't have any major disagreements either. I'm his second wife and we've been married since 2021; the two of us live together. But I can't stand it when men approach close to me.

I can't put my finger on what's wrong with me. She said between sobs, "I don't really feel that I was the one who killed him, even now that I am speaking to you."
