This woman passed on in excruciating pain two days after I interviewed her (Tell my husband to return my baby –Woman run over with bus by police husband). Her story underscores the pathetic life of victims of domestic abuse in Nigeria.
Her story makes me just really sad because apart from the fact that the assault on her was totally unavoidable, the ignorance of her family probably worsened her case. They took her to a traditional doctor than an actual orthopaedic hospital.
I still remember the terrible heat and smell emanating from her room at the time of the interview. It is really unfortunate that a lot of people still prefer traditional treatment to actual orthodox hospitals in this part of the world.
May she rest in peace and her husband rot in hell.
