Federal High Court Remands Man To Prison For Beating His 8-Month Pregnant Wife To Death


Abuja Federal High Court on Wednesday ordered the remand of Mr. Mathew Ankyoor, 37, in prison for allegedly beating his eight-month pregnant wife to death. The judge, Justice Peter Affen, adjourned the case until November 16 for the hearing of bail application filed by the defendant’s counsel, Mr. Ocheme Adama.

“Motion for bail is hereby fixed for hearing on Nov. 16. In the interim, the defendant shall be remanded in Kuje Prison pending the hearing and determination of the motion for bail,” Said the judge.

According to Daily Post, the Prosecuting Counsel, Mr. Donatus Abah, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on June 5, at Lugbe village, Abuja. Abah said that the defendant beat up his wife, Doosur Ankyoor, who was carrying 8-month pregnancy to death.

He said the defendant beat her severally leading to her death and that of the unborn child. The prosecutor said the offence contravened Sections 221, 235 and 236 of the Penal Code. Section 235 deals with preventing the child from being born, and 236 causing the death of an unborn child.

Ankyoor, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge. His counsel, Adama, had prayed the court to grant bail to the defendant to enable him take care of the three children left behind by his late wife.
