She reportedly laced the food she prepared for her husband and his friends with the substance.

Two of the victims- Nasiru Mohammed and Alhassan Alhassan of Yansoro Kademi- died on the spot. The third victim, a woman, Indo Ibrahim, died in the hospital.

Ten other people ,who also ate the food, have been discharged from the hospital.
