Farmer Jailed 22 Years for Inflicting Cutlass Wounds on Pregnant Wife

A Dambai Circuit Court has sentenced 42-year-old farmer Anas Ibrahim to 22 years in prison for inflicting cutlass wounds on his pregnant wife at Banda in the Krachi Nchumuru District of the Oti Region.

The court, presided over by Osman Abdul-Hakeem, convicted Anas on his own plea and sentenced him accordingly. He received sentences of five, seven, and ten years for assault, inflicting multiple cutlass wounds, and attempted murder, respectively, with the sentences to be served consecutively.

Prosecuting, Detective Chief Inspector S.K. Gavor informed the court that on May 28, 2024, Anas attacked his pregnant wife on a farm in Banda, inflicting multiple cutlass wounds without provocation.

Inspector Gavor explained that the suspect had invaded his wife’s house at around 1:00 AM, attempted to gain entry but failed. The following morning, he ambushed and attacked her. The victim was taken to the Banda Health Centre and later referred to Kpandai Polyclinic for further medical treatment. She has since been discharged from the hospital.

In his defense, Anas claimed he did not intend to harm his wife on the farm. He stated that she had broken his head with a stick, causing him to bleed and prompting him to retaliate in anger.
