A 14-year-old girl in Nigeria has confessed to police she killed her husband and three other people after feeding them rice laced with rat poison.
Wasila Umaru said she wanted to kill her new husband, 35-year-old Umaru Sani, because she did not love him and was forced to marry him, the BBC reported (external - login to view).
The two were married last week.
The Associated Press reported (external - login to view) Sani had invited friends to celebrate their wedding on the weekend in a village 100 km from the northern city of Kano. During a meal, Umaru fed them the rice.
Her husband and a friend died that day, while two others died in hospital.
