It is with a heavy heart that we report the tragic news of a young girl being stabbed by her step-mother in northern Nigeria. The incident occurred as an attempt to murder the innocent child, leaving the family and community in a state of shock and disbelief.
Reports suggest that the step-mother had long held animosity towards the young girl, allegedly due to her perceived favoritism by the father. Sadly, this resentment led to the violent attack, leaving the girl hospitalized and fighting for her life.

It is heart-wrenching to hear of such a horrific crime, especially against a child who has yet to experience the joys of life fully. The hope is that the perpetrator of this atrocious act is brought to justice and held accountable for their actions.
