Lagos! Woman Gets 26 Stitches After Husband Beats Her Severely Over A Piece Of Fish

Mrs. Fatima Bankole, 34, has been battered by her husband, Alhaji
Kamoru Bankole, for daring to take a piece of fish from the pot to break her fast some days ago. The victim is the first of his three wives, at their residence in Alasia, Ijanikin in Lagos State.

The attack happened on  the 16th of July, when the third wife
reported to their husband that their senior wife took a piece of fish from the soup to
break her fast. The husband, according to witnesses, did not listen to her
excuse before attacking her.

According to the victim, Mrs. Fatima Bankole, their husband
had always physically abused her, but the incident of  July 16th was more brutal.
She narrated that they had made a roster between two wives,
due to the absence of the third wife who was away at the period, to cook for 15
days each. The victim said she had completed her period, and it was turn of the
last wife. She said they would normally serve the husband first, followed by
the children before the wives would serve themselves.
On the day she was to be attacked, Mrs. Fatima said the last
wife had finished her cooking and served their husband and the children. She
then went for her own meal.
But soon after, the last wife complained to her husband that
Fatima took a larger chunk of the fish in the pot. Their husband, Alhaji Kamoru
Bankole, queried her, but she said that she only took a little out of it,
stating that the fish was in pieces and mixed in the stew. Her explanations,
however, got her in trouble with their husband. Alhaji Kamoru, she details,
delivered several punches to her face. She said she bled for hours and was
further locked up in a room for three days before she escaped.
She said neighbors then took her to the hospital for
treatment. That was the cruelest from her history of experience of assault by
their husband, Mrs. Fatima said. From experiences she recounted, she recalled
how her hair was pulled out of her head, which resulted in grievous head

Saharareporters learned that police have now arrested the
husband, following outcry and petitions by the Women Arise civil group in
Lagos. He will be arraigned in court next week.
