A 24-year-old housewife, Mariam Musa who resides in Ede, Osun State, has admitted to killing her stepson, Rokeeb Musa, on Saturday, December 26, 2020.

According to Mariam, she poisoned Rokeeb because her husband cared more for the boy’s mother.

Speaking while being paraded on Tuesday by the new Osun State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, the suspect said the three-year-old boy left his mother and came to her room on the day she committed the act, adding that she put insecticide in the victim’s mouth, which killed him.
