She said “Chidimma used wire and killed Emmanuel. She came back from my shop and she told me that Ahmed who impregnated her met her in the kitchen while she was washing plates and asked her to open her hand.
“Immediately she opened her hand, he dropped the wire and N3,000 inside her hand and told her, ”that Yorubas don’t allow their blood to stay outside.”
“Immediately, she collected the wire and money, she lost her senses and started behaving strangely. From that night she collected the wire and money, she started behaving very strange. She became so restless and started destroying my husband’s properties including TV set.
“In the morning, I went to the market. While coming back, I heard that she has already killed the baby. When I entered my house, I saw people inside over the incident, they were crying. I am very angry on the incident because in my life, I have never seen such a thing”, she said.
