Husband Flees After Ripping Up Wife’s Tummy In Plateau 

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Amid growing concerns over domestic violence, a husband is on the run after allegedly ripping up his wife’s tummy and abandoned her to die in Plateau State.

The fleeing suspect, Matthew Samuel, grabbed his 23-year-old mother-of-two, Mercy Samuel, on Sunday night, April 17, ripping open her abdomen with intestine gushing out.

Mr Samuel was living with her wife along Vom Road in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

The suspect hurriedly picked up her mobile phone so her dying wife would not be able to call for help and fled the scene to evade arrest leaving behind his wife in the pool of her blood.

Reports say curious neighbours found dying Mercy at home on Monday morning and rushed her to the Bingham University Teaching Hospital, Jos, where she gave up the ghost on Wednesday, April 20.

The State Project Officer, Women’s Right Advancement and Protection Alternative, (WRAPA), Jummai Madaki, said Mercy had been a victim of domestic violence for a while and the group was trying to get support for her before she was killed.

Following her death, Jummai asked the public to call for justice on her behalf.

“There had been some violence against her in the past as confirmed by her family, but the husband’s family denied any violence.

“The man ripped open her tummy, removed her intestine and cut it before he disappeared with her phone so she could not call for help.

“They lived in a small apartment so I wonder why no one heard her scream, we were told help did not come until the early hours of Monday when she was rushed to the hospital and placed on oxygen.

“An informant called my attention to the incident and we raised alarm. Surprisingly, the matter was not reported to the police.

“We were told by her parents that even as recent as last year, she was home due to some issues but the husband’s people came to beg and she went back,” he narrated.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Rebecca Sambo, who visited the family of the deceased in Gyel, Jos South, expressed sadness over the incident.

She assured the family that justice will be done.
