The wife of a soldier with 6 Division of the Nigerian Army in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has been arrested alongside her husband, for beating her 10-year-old stepdaughter to death for eating the plantain bought by the father.
PmNews reports that while the woman was savagely beating the deceased, a female soldier ran into the house to intervene, but she was ordered out by the primary suspect’s husband.
The beating allegedly continued until the 10-year-old girl slumped.
She was then rushed to a Clinic, but it was too late to save her. The couple are now in detention at the 6 Division of Army Barracks.
