Diso village in Gwale Local Government area of Kano State has been thrown into panic and mourning as a housewife, Hauwa, allegedly killed two of her children because her husband, Ibrahim Haruna Aminu, married a second wife.

Hauwa has been run after killing her two children — Yusuf (5), Zahra’u (3), and injuring her 10-year-old niece, who was living with them.

According to Aminu’s brother, Sadiq Haruna Aminu, Hauwa has become sorrowful and jealous ever since her husband married another wife about two months ago.

“The incident happened when my brother was away and in his new wife’s place. His eldest wife, Hauwa called him on phone this morning that all was not well in their house, only for him to return to the house and meet the lifeless bodies of their children in the pool of blood. She carried out the atrocities and ran away from the house.

 

“She beat the children and used knife to cut them. Her sister’s daughter — 10-year-old, who was living with them was another victim, but she survived with cuts on her hand and she is the witness when the incident happened.

“We don’t know her whereabouts at the moment because we spoke with security operatives. We learnt she went to her parent’s house,” he narrated.
