A man, Azeez Giwa, is currently on the run, after he allegedly beat his pregnant wife, Nimatalahi Giwa, to death in the Saki area of Oke-Ogun, Oyo State.
It was learnt that Nimatalahi, who was in her early 30s, made efforts to escape more beatings from Azeez, but fell with the pregnancy while running away from her husband.
The victim was said to have been ignored by an angry Azeez for some time before neighbours came to help. She was rushed to the hospital, where she died three hours after.
The deceased, who was eight months pregnant, was declared to have been constantly subjected to beatings by her 40-year-old husband, with the last incident leading to her death.
She reportedly had a miscarriage due to domestic violence from her husband.
The Oyo Police Command had not released any statement on the incident as of the time of filing this report.
