Woman Remanded in Prison for Cutting Off Stepson’s Genitals to Punish Her Husband




Last week, BN brought you the story of a woman who severely mutilated her stepson – cutting off his penis – in Niger state. Click here if you missed it.

22-year-old woman, Bara’atu Rabiu was arraigned before a Chief Magistrates Court in Minna on Monday on a one count charge of attempted homicide. She was remanded in prison by the court after arraignment.

According to PUNCH, the suspect has been married to her husband Mohammed Rabiu for seven years without a child.

She cut off the baby’s penis to punish her husband for marrying a second wife.

Niger state Police Public Relations Officer Bala James, said that the suspect intended to kill the child, adding that the child, who was named after President Muhammadu Buhari, survived the attack.

“The woman used a sharp knife to cut through the genitals of the one-month-old baby. She had been married to her husband for seven years without any child. So, out of pressure, the man decided to marry a second wife.

When the second wife had a baby, she became angry and frustrated. She thought the best thing to do was to kill the child.

On June 21, around 10PM, she took the baby to the backyard of their house and used a sharp knife to cut off his penis.

The cry of the baby attracted neighbours, who rushed to the place and found him in a pool of blood. The suspect wanted to run away, but she was overpowered. She was handed over to the police, while the baby was taken to a hospital,” he said.

Buhari was taken to the Accident and Emergency Ward of the Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida Specialist Hospital, Minna, after the incident where a surgical operation to enable him to pass out urine was immediately performed.

The Head of Department, General Outpatient Ward of the hospital, Dr. Ahmed Mohammed, said the boy might never regain the use of his private parts.

He explained that all the tissues in the affected part had been dead before he was brought to the hospital.

“He is doing well – health-wise. He survived the attack. However, there is no assurance of the penis getting back because all the tissues were dead when he was brought into the hospital. We just had to conduct a surgery for him to be able to pass urine.

Medically, for him to regain the use of his manhood will be difficult.  If the team that was supposed to work on him had been around immediately, maybe the situation would have been different. For such a case, you need a general surgeon, a neurologist and a plastic surgeon. But these were not available. His future right now is in the hands of God. Another possibility is if there is artificial attachment.

I really pity the boy’s condition. I cannot imagine that somebody will do this to a baby. It is better for the child to die than for him to be in this condition.  Even if he survives, what purpose will he be living for?,” he said.

    I sincerely hope this is not becoming a trend just because of the publicity and help the other little boy got. These illiterates will do anything for money! Just yesterday, we read that a step mother gave her stepson insecticide to drink! (fancy the boy being named after the president!). It’s rather unfortunate for the little children who have to be victims of such. The woman, her husband and their whole family should be well investigated!

    22 years old, married for 7 years! She got married at 15. How old is the husband? If he is an old man, He needs to join the woman in jail too. The woman’s parents and husband’s parents should also be jailed!

      @mkm how do we expect the man to go to jail when their religion supports this barbaric act.. what is a 15 year old doing In a marriage?. Nd only God knows how old the second wife is.. its trully sickening.. I don’t care who I offend… no matter what religion dictates.. I WILL NEVER SUPPORT CHILD MARRIAGE.. All these governors nd senators who marry children are so useless.. how do you justify the sexual attraction to a child? how quick are they to marry their own daughters off.. . you will see these muslim girls in the UK esspecially in tht Coventry university.. getting masters degrees and phd.. These are daughters of law makers who refuse to allow another man’s daughter to grow up.. what a shame..

      And as for this useless woman.. may the wrath of God descend upon you 1000 fold… no amount of jelousy shld allow any human being be so barbaric. JUSTICE MUST BE SERVED… how do you expect this little boy to grow up.. what kind of life will he live.. THEY SHOULD SLICE YOUR OWN PRIVATES AND RUB HOT PEPPER THERE AND THEN TEAR OPEN ANOTHER A** HOLE AND RUB MORE PEPPER … RUBBISH

    This is the thing about polygamy.
    It breeds too much jealousy. I can’t be in such a home where I’m constantly worried abt d safety of my kids and I.
    Plus I’m too jealous to even share my husband with any woman abeg. I really don’t know how d women cope.
    I hope d boy pulls through.

    I don’t like the way the doctors are surrendering to Defeat. The boy can still pull through. He may not possess sexual abilities as an adult but he may have a good life living whatever purpose he deems for himself.

    Pls the medical community should do what they possibly can to save the life of this child. He’s human!

    And for the woman, May God Forgive her.

    Oh too sad……some women stand on two legs but not better than the animals on four legs,see how selfish she is,if she is jealous that the co-wife is able to conceive and she is not for 7 years,why did she choose to mutilate the innocent boy?
