A mother of four identified as Mrs Chinasa Odah, has been confirmed dead after a failed abortion in which she bled to death.
The native of Inikiri Effum community in the Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State bled to death on August 24, at Sudan hospital after taking abortion pills. The 29-year-old lady’s pregnancy came off her amorous relationship with a 25-year-old man identified as Monday Mgbada.
The lady’s extra-marital affair was uncovered after her husband, Michael Odah rushed her to Sudan Hospital where a doctor confirmed she took abortion pills. Punch reported that Mgbada was arrested by the police after the lady disclosed that he administered the abortion pills which sources said was capable of damaging the deceased’s womb.
“Chinasa was bleeding from her private parts. When she was questioned, she opened up that one Monday Mgbada impregnated her and administered abortion drugs on her. As soon as she made that statement, she gave up the ghost,” the source said.
The state’s police spokesperson, Loveth Odah confirmed the arrest of Mgbada. She also said the matter is still being investigated.
She said, “The man has been arrested and investigation is ongoing. The suspect will be arraigned after investigation. The woman is 29 years old and has four children before going for extra martial affairs. The man will be charged with murder.”
