Delta man beats pregnant wife to death over church service

A Delta State resident popularly known as M.O.B has allegedly beaten his pregnant wife, Beatrice, to death.

The incident happened around a new generation church, Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries, on New Road, Awolowo Road Extension, in the Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.

The man was reportedly interrogating his wife over her presence in the church without doing the necessary chores and making dinner before pouncing on her.

Eyewitnesses said the impatient man did not wait for the heavily pregnant wife to give an explanation before he slapped and hit her several times, causing her to collapse on the spot.

Consequently, passers-by and church members were said to have rushed to the scene to rescue the woman.

Sources said the woman was thereafter rushed to a nearby medical facility, Obule Hospital, where she was confirmed dead on arrival.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, told newsmen that the police were not aware of the incident as of the time of filing this report.
