“Why I beat an 85-yr-old woman to death” — a 15-year-old girl
A 15-year-old girl, Happy David, confesses to beating an 85-year-old woman, identified as Gama Jatau, to death in Tambo village, Adamawa State.
She made the confession when she was brought before a Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Yola, the state capital.
It was revealed that the incident happened on April 8th, 2022. The suspect forcefully entered the deceased’s house at around 1 pm and repeatedly used a stick to hit her head after accusing her of being a witch.
The woman was later rushed to the hospital and was later pronounced dead.
Admitting the crime, Miss David told the court that the old woman bewitched her, cursed her academic progress and made her sick on several occasions.
The suspect revealed that she lives in the same neighbourhood as the 85-year-old woman, but did what she did to teach the old woman a lesson.
