A Chadian woman identified as Fatima Rahman, has been arrested and arraigned before Magistrate P. E Nwaka at the Yaba Magistrate court, for allegedly stabbing her pregnant co-wife, Adiza, to death at her residence in Alejo Street, Ijede, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

During her arraignment, the prosecuting counsel, Thomas Nurudeen, told the court that Rahman committed the crime at about 12.40pm on the said day.
