Wicked Heart! See The Woman Who Murdered Her 3-Year-Old Stepson!
Police officers from the Enugu state police command have arrested 29-year-old Nnenna Egwuagu of Umulumgbe in Udi L.G.A. for allegedly administering a noxious substance to her three-year-old stepson, Wisdom Egwuagu, resulting in his death.
According to a statement released by ASP Daniel Ndukwe, the state police command’s spokesperson, her husband and the deceased child’s parent, Justine Egwuagu, who reported the incident to the police, said the suspect’s unusual behaviour towards the child caused the child’s death.
The statement partly reads:
”Preliminary investigation shows that the suspect confessed to having administered the noxious substance to the child. She claimed that her action was due to her husband’s inability to take care of her and their daughter; and that she wanted the child to become sick so her husband could spend money to treat him. The child was confirmed dead in the hospital and his corpse deposited in the mortuary for autopsy”
The noxious substance container and syringe she used to administer the substance to the boy, according to Ndukwe, have been recovered, and a thorough investigation into the case is underway at the State CID, Enugu.
While describing the act as callous and unfortunate, he added that the Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, has urged couples to genuinely love each other, live in peace regardless of the circumstances, and use any legitimate and/or morally appropriate means to overcome their differences.
