Wasila Tasi’u is the 14-year-old Kano-based child bride who is facing death penalty for allegedly murdering her 35-year-old husband with rat poison.She reportedly laced her husband Umar Sani’s food with poison and is accused of the murder of 3 others, who are said to have died suddenly after eating the same meal prepared for a post-wedding celebration in the village of Unguwar Yansoro in Kano State.


Last week, Hon. Justice Mohammed Yahaya, sitting at the Gezawa High Court, entered a plea of not guilty for Tasi’u, who refused to respond at a previous hearing on October 30 when the charges were put to her. The judge rejected defence applications for the case to be transferred to a juvenile court, while the case has been adjourned.
