When an innocent, 14-year-old girl being forced into what is essentially slavery and a life of no-life-at-all, filled with serving and servicing some controlling freak twice her age – decides to put him and his cohorts down like the sick puppies they are – I can only say; “I bet he won’t do that again!”

KANO, Nigeria — Police say a child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria prepared a poisoned meal that has killed her groom and three of his friends.
They quote 14-year-old Wasila Umaru as saying she used rat poison in the food because she was forced to marry a man she did not love.
The couple was married last week. The 35-year-old groom had invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his village 100 kilometres from the north Nigerian city of Kano over the weekend.
Child marriage is common in Nigeria and especially in the mainly Muslim north.
Assistant police superintendent Musa Magaji Majia said Thursday that the teenage suspect is co-operating with police and probably will be charged with culpable homicide.
Everybody gets a taste of the bitchjuice! Blam!
Wait – isn’t this the same country that keeps sending me offers for penis extensions and helping the King get $14,000,000 out of some account? Serves ’em right..

Early and forced marriage is classified as modern-day slavery by the U.N. labor organization, and Nigeria’s Child Rights Act prohibits marriage before 18. But that federal law competes with Islamic Shariah law.
No one in Nigeria has been prosecuted for marrying a child, including Sen. Sani Ahmed Yerima, infamous for divorcing a 17-year-old that he married when she was 15 so he could marry a 14-year-old Egyptian girl in 2010, when he was 49. He had to divorce one of his child brides because Islamic law allows a maximum of four wives at a time.
Many child brides are divorced, for that reason and because of incontinence and other medical problems caused by difficult pregnancies, according to local child rights advocates who say
such girls are put out on the street.
