A Nigerian child bride has 'admitted' murdering her 35-year-old husband with rat poison by signing a confession she could not read - with her thumbprint.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for 14-year-old Wasila Tasi'u, whose farmer husband Umar Sani was found dead just days after marrying her in April.
If she is found guilty, the teenager - who is from a poor and deeply conservative Muslim family and cannot write - could become the first child in Nigeria to be executed in 18 years.
