She was paraded alongside other crime suspects at the command headquarters in Osogbo by the State Commissioner of Police, CP Wale Olokode on Tuesday, January 5.
During interrogation Mariam confessed she poisoned her stepson with pesticide (Rocket) all because her husband was showing more love and favour to the second wife as she had a male child while she (as the first wife) is yet to bear a son.
It was gathered that the child was rushed to Muslim Hospital, Ede, where he died while receiving treatment on December 31.
However, exhibits were recovered from the suspect include pesticide bottle with liquid content and empty rubber bottle.
