Nigerian man allegedly beats pregnant wife to death in UK after she filed divorce application
A pregnant Nigerian woman has allegedly died as a result of beating she got from her husband in the United Kingdom.
The woman simply identified as Hope filed a divorce application at the Ikorodu High Court in Lagos with the help of a lawyer in Nigeria.
The lawyer, Bolanle Cole said the victim’s father had contacted him that his daughter wants to divorce her husband, and when she did, he filed the petition in court.
However, extended family and some pastors in the UK got involved, so it was agreed that the divorce case be discontinued.
Unfortunately, barely a day after the petition was struck out Bolanle got reports that the husband hit his wife in her belly and she as five months pregnant.
He said she died as a result of the attack and her father decided to take up the matter with the UK authorities.
The post reads; “WE LOST HER
Sometimes last year, her father called me that her daughter in UK will call me to institute a case for dissolution of her marriage. She eventually called me and I did the needful and the petition was filed at High Court Ikorodu.
A week after I filled the Petition, her husband, herself and other family members requested to have meeting with me so, we scheduled a zoom meeting. Some pastors from UK joined the meeting and it was resolved that peace will be brokered.
Thereafter, she sent me a mail to discontinue the case…. though I never appeared in court until the matter was struck out…. Just yesterday, I was told that her husband hit her at her tommy with five months pregnancy which led to her death. Her father called me yesternight to send those documents I filed in court as he wants to send it to some investigating authorities in UK.
Do I believe that the husband hit her… weh, the pictures I have on my phone during my conversations with them give credence to their history of domestic violence. RIP HOPE”
