A magistrates’ court in Makurdi, on Tuesday, ordered that a farmer, Ternenge Igbaade, be remanded in a correctional centre for allegedly beating his pregnant wife to death.

The magistrate, Mrs Erdoo Ter, did not take the plea of Igbaade for want of jurisdiction. She ordered that he should be remanded in the Makurdi Correctional Centre and adjourned the case to April 19.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp James Ewache, told the court that the case was reported by the father of the victim, Tyoapine Sule, of Tse-Agberagba in Konshisha LGA on February 22, 2023.

The prosecutor who noted that the victim, Kpadoo, was two months pregnant, alleged that the suspect beat her which led her to bleed to death. (NAN)
