For The Yerimas: Married Underage Girl Kills Her Husband Over Too Much Sexual Demands


(By Mairo Danlami)

The Plateau State Police Command, on Wednesday, said it had arrested a 17-year-old minor, who allegedly killed her husband over his intimacy urges.

The deceased, Lawal Bala (26) was allegedly strangled by the minor as he slept on their matrimonial bed on July 8, 2013.

The minor, who is in police custody where she narrated her ordeal, said, “He was sleeping with me six times in a day. I kept complaining to him that I could not stand his intimacy urge but he refused to listen to my plea; no family member was ready to help me, so I did what I did.”

She said that she regretted killing him, but that she thought that was the only option left for her to free herself from the pains she was passing through.

“I have realised my mistake and have repented of my sin; all I want is for the authorities to allow me to go home,” she said. The suspect revealed that she was already two months pregnant for her late husband and would want to go home to take care of herself till delivery.

Chris Olakpe, the state Commissioner of Police confirmed the incident. Olakpe said that when the matter was reported, and the minor arrested, she denied committing the offence.“But in the cause of investigations, she later confessed to committing the crime and gave reasons,” Olakpe said.

Olakpe, who said that the offence was a culpable homicide, added that she would soon be prosecuted at the juvenile court.
