A 42-year-old woman, Fatima Rahman has been remanded to the Ikoyi Custodial Centre for the alleged murder of her co-wife, Adizat.

The deceased was killed at her residence in Alejo Street, Ijede, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

Fatima was arraigned on Tuesday before Magistrate P. E Nwaka at a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Yaba on one count of murder.

She was said to have been angry when she learnt that her husband had married another wife.

A neighbour of the deceased who saw her when she arrived at the residence was said to have indicted her after deep wounds were found on the deceased’s neck and head.
