Jealous Wife in Ogun Arrested After Tying Up 2 Year Old Stepdaughter, Taping Her Mouth & Locking Her in Room




A 28-year-old woman in Ogun State has been arrested for attempted murder after she tied up her stepdaughter, taped her mouth, and locked her in a room and left for her place of work.

The woman, Christanah Faturoti, who works as a salesgirl at a petrol station, committed the heinous act because she was jealous of the preferential treatment the baby received from her husband, Punch reports.

Sources state that the baby was discovered after people passing by heard the baby groaning. They subsequently alerted the police who arrived at the scene and found the baby in critical condition. She was subsequently rushed to the hospital.

The doctor who treated her stated that if she had remained tied up with tape over her mouth for another two hours, she would have died.

Faturoti, who has a child for her husband, reportedly confessed to the crime and has been take into police custody.

The biological mother of the baby is dealing with mental health issues. It was as a result of her condition that the father decided to put her in the care of the stepmother.

    That’s why I have told my husband that if God forbid anything happens to me, he should take my children to my mother’s house. If my mother is late, then my sister. I have heard too many stories of wicked stepmothers and I do not want my little kids to be brought up by someone who will not have their best interests at heart. At least i am sure of my mother and sister.

    @Fanya. you can trust nobody but yourself o.. I’ve seen many sisters treat their nieces and nephews badly and its not because they are not good people, for some,its the responsibility of taking care of too many people that weighs down on them and they lash out at anyone possible even the children. Just always pray they are in good hands, whether sister, mother, step mother, etc, but sha, By God’s grace, nothing will happen to you, you” live long to a good old age.

      Thank you ooo….my mother died after giving birth to my last sister nine months later. My dad took care of us until him too died almost 5 years later. My mother’s sister adopted me and my siblings with her husband and their 3 kids. This lady not only treated us like we did the worst thing on earth to her but she do it behind her husband’s back. Her husband who is only related to us by marrying her looks out for us, while she who is related to us by blood treats us with hatred. Idk if she did that to get back at my dad who she didn’t get along with while he was alive (this happened when we were still very young ooo and we didn’t know what went on). So yeah @fanya, u can only trust urself when it comes to ur kids.

    This is good news, the image of the tied up girl broke my heart so badly. I wish this woman would be locked up for good! An helpless two year old child, may God heal her.

    Some people are just heartless. And she has her own kids too. Didnt she put herself/kids in that situation?

    She should just be jailed forever.

    That woman is a monster! It makes me wonder though how the man can claim not to have noticed? It’s the same way as the lady who’s step father was trying to molest her. Truth is even in a house where my husband is the father if my kids I can’t let myself be caught napping, you must always be close enough to your kids and ask them the right questions everyday. Too many wicked people in this world

    I cried when I saw the girl’s pictures. Such cruelty to a child shows probably worse mental illness in the stepmother than the mother. Also the father is not blameless. I hope the girl gets the care she deserves henceforth.

    This woman has to have some mental issues just with this story I’m seeing the poor child’s tears, imagine her choking on her saliva, suffocating in breathing each grasp and tear, terrified, confused, …how can someone who calls themselves a human being do this to a little 2 year old. No no this is just pure wickedness thank goodness this child was saved before she died oh my goodness no this is just I can’t…
