“Neighbours tried in vain to pacify the man from beating his wife, it was when all efforts failed that one of the neighbours went and brought the police.

“Unfortunately, by the time police arrived at the scene, the woman lifeless body was on the ground.

“It was the police and some neighbours that rushed the woman to the teaching hospital where she was confirmed dead and from there police whisked the husband away.

When contacted, the State Command spokesperson, Catherine Anene, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, confirmed the incident.

She said: “A victim was rushed to Benue State University Teaching Hospital but was confirmed dead. The victim was also seen bleeding from the nostrils.

“The man is 42 years old, a fisherman, the suspect is from Delta while the wife is from Benue.

“Suspect is in police custody as the investigation is still in progress,” Anene said.
