Woman flees after bathing co-wife with hot water



A woman, simply identified as Hauwa’u, has fled after pouring hot water on her co-wife, Bushra Ibrahim, which burnt parts of body in the Unguwar Sadauki area in Jere town in Kagarko LGA of Kaduna State. 

It was learnt that the incident happened around 10pm on Sunday in their matrimonial home, three months after Bushra was brought to the house as second wife.

Speaking to City & Crime yesterday, the victim explained that the suspect demanded to get access into her room in order to recover something that she claimed was hers.

She said, “I demanded to find out what the item was, and she responded that it’s a pillow which had been kept with me by our husband. I insisted that she should wait for the return of our husband who had travelled to Kano for business.


“I then called our husband over the phone to inquire about the pillow. He told me the pillow belonged to someone else entrusted to him, but that since she had insisted on it, I should give it to her for the sake of peace.

“We, however, ended up fighting with Hauwa’u, and in the process dragged her out of my room. She threatened me that I should expect something from her and left for her room.

“The following day, I left the house for a wedding, and on getting back around 8pm, we spoke to each other. I received a call from our husband about two hours thereafter, who demanded that I prepare something for him to eat. I was in the process of cooking when she came behind me and poured hot water over me.”

The husband of the women, Malam Ibrahim Mai Inyas, said all effort to access his first wife, the suspect, who fled the area immediately with their only son of about one year, had so far proved abortive.
