Outrage As Chadian Woman Kills Husband’s Second Wife In Ikorodu Lagos

A disturbing case of domestic violence has emerged in Lagos State, Nigeria. A 42-year-old woman, Fatima Rahman, from Chad Republic, has been accused of murdering her co-wife, Adizat, at her residence in Alejo Street, Ijede, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State. The accused, Fatima, was arraigned on Tuesday before Magistrate P. E Nwaka at a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Yaba on one count of murder.

Reports reveal that the accused was enraged when she learned that her husband had married another wife, and so she decided to visit the pregnant woman in her residence under the guise of being a nurse and stabbed her to death. A neighbour of the deceased who saw Fatima when she arrived at the residence was said to have indicted her after deep wounds were found on the deceased’s neck and head.

According to the prosecutor, Thomas Nurudeen, the defendant committed the offence on April 9, 2023, around 12.40pm at 43, Alejo Street, Ijede Road, Ikorodu, Lagos State. The charge against the accused read: “That you, Fatima Abdul Rahman, on April 9, 2023, around 12.40 pm, at 43, Alero Street, Ijede Road, Ikorodu, Lagos State in the Lagos Magisterial District did unlawfully kill one Adizat Abdul Rahman, 28-year-old, by stabbing her with a knife and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 222 and punishable under Section 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2015.”

The prosecutor has requested the court to remand the defendant to a custodial centre pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution. The request was granted, and Nwaka remanded Fatima to the Ikoyi Custodial Centre pending legal advice. The trial has been adjourned till May 25, 2023.

Domestic violence, particularly violence against women, is a major issue in many societies across the world. The Nigerian government has taken measures to address the problem, but much still needs to be done to protect women from violence, abuse and discrimination. The killing of Adizat is a tragic reminder of the need to strengthen efforts to end violence against women and ensure justice for victims of domestic violence. It is essential that perpetrators of such heinous acts are brought to justice and that victims are supported and protected.
