A young pregnant mother was reportedly left for dead after being attacked by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Benue State on Monday, May 28.
Read the report by Zenald Care Foundation:
“Yesterday evening a young pregnant woman was captured by the Fulani herdsmen in Yogbo town Makurdi LGA. She was with her husband who escaped when they started shooting. The men used sticks to pierce through her private part to kill the unborn child and pull the child and her womb out after which they beat her and left her for dead. When the military went to pick the corpse upon her husband’s report they discovered that she was still alive and brought her down to Bishop Murray Hospital which is run by the Catholic Church. We were informed and rushed there.
Preliminary processes and documentation have been done. We have paid for screening and two pints of blood and and I am currently waiting for the bill for the surgery to likely take out the womb.”
