Abuja - Police in Niger State have their hands full over a case involving a 22-year-old housewife who allegedly took a knife to her one-month-old stepson's private parts.
According to the Sun News Online, the woman got married to the child's father just over seven years ago and has been unable to bear him children ever since.
Lamenting his lack of an heir, the man reportedly took a second wife who eventually gave birth to the victim, identified only as Buhari.
Flying into a rage over her feelings of jealousy towards the boy's mother, the suspect is alleged to have sneaked into the child's room before carrying him out to commit the horrendous act.
Confirming the incident, Police PR Officer Bala Elkana revealed that the child is currently receiving treatment at a nearby medical facility while the suspect in the case has been arrested for culpable homicide.
