It was gathered that the deceased, of Yanmallam village in Miga Local
Government Area, took a rat poison as she could not live to see her
husband taking another wife.
Daily Trust learnt that the late Bala was rushed to hospital in
Jahun, Jahun LGA after taking the rat poison on Monday at 7 pm in her
matrimonial home but passed on around 9p.m.

occurred in the same community when a close relation to the deceased
took the same type of poison when her husband was taking a second wife
but she was fortunate to have survived it.
The State police command spokesperson, SP Abdul Jinjiri, confirmed the incident.
