A heart breaking story of the brutal assault a pregnant in Yogbo town Makurdi, Benue state capital got from herdsmen on Sunday evening, has emerged and social media users are already reacting to it.
It was gathered that the Fulani herdsmen attacked the town when the lady was with her husband. However after he escaped, they started shooting. The herdsmen from hell reportedly used sticks to pierce through her private part to kill the unborn child. They also pulled out the child from her womb, after which they beat her and left her to die.
Soldiers who turned up at the scene of the incident following a report from the lady’s husband, found her alive and rushed her to a hospital. Facebook user, Benjamin Amaechi who shared the story wrote;
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 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 morning s 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.Pictures as seen above….
This is coming after the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev’d. Paulinus Ezeokafor, claimed that the Fulani herdsmen allegedly killing Nigerians are “acting on a written instruction”.
Ezeokafor said the purported inaction and prolonged silence of the Federal Government over the killing of two Catholic priests and 17 worshippers in Benue State was an indication that there was a calculated attempt by unseen forces to wipe out Christians in Nigeria.
