A woman who was identified as Fatima Aliyu was reportedly beaten and burnt by her Co-wife a few weeks after her wedding.

Fatima Aliyu was reportedly beaten by her husband's first wife, Amina Aliyu. After Amina Aliyu beat her Co-wife, Fatima Aliyu up, she locked her in a room and set up the room on fire.
