14 year old Wasila Tasi'u will be facing trial for murder today after she confessed to poisoning her 35 year old husband and 3 others at a wedding at Unguwar Yansoro in kano.
According to Kano state police spokesman Musa Magaji Majia, Wasila was forced to marry a man she did not love.
Her lawyer Hussaina Aliyu rejects claims that her client made a legally valid confession.She said Tasi’u was questioned by police without a parent or lawyer present and so any comments she may have made are inadmissable in court.
Aliyu has sought to have the case transferred to a juvenile court, a bid rejected by justice officials in Kano.
Truly, this girl is a child...she should not be tried as an adult.
