A 45-year-old woman identified as Hauwa Ibrahim has been detained in a Kano correctional center for killing her newborn grandchild with acid.
The accused, who resides in Tugar Bala Ward of Bagwai LGA, was charged with murder, to which she pleaded guilty.
The prosecutor, Barrister Ahmed Muhammad had earlier told the court that the accused murdered her grandson who is the child of her son’s second wife because the first wife does not have a male child yet.
Muhammed said that the suspect decided to murder the baby of the second wife, Badariyya Ibrahim because she supports the first wife.
He said the accused used acid to kill the child when his mother (complainant) went to the restroom.
The Magistrate, Haulatu Magaji Kankarofi, ordered the detainment of the accused and adjourned to October 4.
