NIGERIA: 14-year-old Muslim child bride forced to marry a 35-year-old, killed her husband and 3 of his friends by lacing a meal with rat poison

UnknownWasila Umaru, 14, was forcibly married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani. But when Umaru invited a dozen friends to celebrate in northern Ungwar Yansoro village, the teenager slipped the deadly poison chemical into a rice dish.

Wasila admitted buying the poison at a local market and putting it into the food. ‘The suspect confessed to committing the crime and said she did it because she was forced to marry a man she did not love,’ Majia said. Umaru is cooperating with police and likely will be charged with culpable homicide, according to Majia.

Child marriage is common in Nigeria and especially in the mainly Muslim north, where the numbers increase in times of drought because a bride price is paid and it means one less mouth to feed.

Fifty percent of Nigerian girls living in rural areas are married before they turn 18, according to the U.N. children’s agency. Child brides suffer difficult pregnancies and can often die in childbirth, the leading cause of death worldwide for girls aged 15 to 19.

They are also much more likely to contract AIDS and be subjected to domestic violence, according to the International Center for Research on Women. Early and forced marriage is classified as modern-day slavery by the U.N. labor organization, and Nigeria’s Child Rights Act prohibits marriage before 18.

But the ruling is often ignored in favour of Islamic Shariah law that holds in most northern states.

Many child brides are divorced to make way for another partner, and because of incontinence and other medical problems caused by difficulties during childbirth pregnancies.  According to local child rights advocates who say such girls are put out on the street.

  1. Whoa Whao and Just Whoa!!!!!, girl’s got guts I’ll giver her that.. I think many a child bride can take a page out of her book

  2. Any child bride would be encouraged to poison their rapist and I would call this self defence. A child can never chose to be a bride they are too young. This is purely self defence. Good news to hear that 4 muslums bit the dust.

  3. Her poisoning them reminds me of the story of Mohammed being poisoned! Maybe it was Aisha. Or maybe the Jewish woman. Or perhaps the goat?!

  4. I don’t want to encourage violence of any sort, but perhaps all vile Muslim child-rapists will learn from this and live in fear that the girls THEY are raping may do the same.

  5. Rage of a rape victim is completely understandable. So is taking revenge on a rapist and accomplices partying after the rape. But what’s going to happen to her now?

  6. Hubby just found out the hard way, that the Culinary Arts was not not “Baby Cakes” strongest feature. She couldn’t possibly compete with his mother’s cooking. What’s a girl to do?

  7. What goes around comes around, FILTHY Muzzies!

    Always nice to see a FILTHY MUZ SCUM bite the dust.

  8. Obstetric fistula or vaginal fistula is a medical condition in which a fistula (hole) develops between either the rectum and vaginal fistula) or between the bladder and vagina (vesicovaginal fistula) after severe or failed childbirth, when adequate medical care is not available.

    Vaginal fistula can be very smelly causing the victim to be ostracized, shunned and considered cursed by Allah!

    Doctors consider it a disease of poverty because of its tendency to occur in women in poor MOZ MISOGYNIST countries that do not have health resources comparable to developed CIVILIZED, non-Bronze-age nations.
