Until her arrest, the 23-year-old woman resided in Federal Housing Estate, Girei area of the State.

The children, seven years old Genesis Geoffrey,: three years old and Idadai Geoffrey, now have their affected hands bandaged.

Spokesman for the Command, SP Suleiman Nguroje, who disclosed this in a statement on Saturday, May 18, 2024, said that Rachel intentionally inflicted severe physical injuries on her stepchildren.

He said the incident occurred on Tuesday, May 14.

According to him, the children suffered several calculated acts of cruelty and human rights violations from their stepmother.

He explained that the children faced the wrath of the woman over a plate of rice she cooked and kept for her husband.

“The kids, because of hunger, ate their father’s food, and that angered her. She then tied their hands with a handkerchief and set fire to them, resulting in the severe injuries they sustained,” Nguroje explained.
