The state Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Adamu Usman, who confirmed the woman’s arrest to journalists in Minna, said she had a misunderstanding with her husband, Sani Umaru, on April 23 and the quarrel led to the duo’s divorce.

He said: “The suspect alleged that her mother-in-law, Aishatu Umaru, 70 of Tozon Daji village instigated her son to divorce her.
