A domestic abuse carried out by a Congolese man identified as Francis Mbuyi (Dewiston Mbuyi) over an undisclosed reason, reportedly left his 31-year-old wife Lhynda, dead.
Lhynda, who was admitted at Kimbondo – Hospital Center Monkole after being battered by her husband who is a lawyer, reportedly died of the internal bleeding she suffered.
This follows up arrest of a 50-year-old man, over the death of his 40-year-old wife in Birnin Kudu Local Government Area of Jigawa state.
Jigawa State Police command’s spokesman, SP Jinjiri Abdu, who confirmed the arrest, said the suspect allegedly assaulted the deceased when they had a quarrel on Jan. 14, in their matrimonial home in Daurawa village at about 6.30 a.m.
It was gathered that the suspect had returned from a journey and proceeded to the house of his second wife but that when the deceased (first wife) heard about it, she followed him there and protested that he was supposed to be with her.
He said the reports further indicated that before the husband travelled, he was with the deceased and was supposed to be with the second wife after returning from his journey.
“But the new wife permitted the suspect to go with the senior wife so that peace can reign. Unfortunately, the quarrel continued between the suspect and the deceased, and in the process, he beat her such that he had to rush her to hospital where she died before medical personnel could attend to her,” Jinjiri said. He added that the suspect would be charged to court.
There was also a viral report few months ago, which disclosed that a 37-year-old man, Mathew Ankyoor, was remanded in prison custody for beating his eight-month pregnant wife to death.
Ankyoor had beaten the wife and mother of three children, to death at their residence at Lugbe Village, a suburb of the FCT on June 5, 2017, during a disagreement.
