A pregnant woman (name withheld) has been stabbed eight times by a man identified as Austin over a N20,000 debt he was owing her. And the man is now on the run. The stabbed woman was supposed to put to bed a week before the sad incident. The incident happened at Olayemi Street, in Ayobo Ipaja Local Council Development Area, Ipaja, Lagos. Austin, a resident of Redeemed Avenue, Olayemi Street, Ipaja has been on the run since the incident and the police at Ayobo-Ipaja police station where the matter was reported are looking for him. Trouble reportedly started when the mother of one asked Austin, an Aluminum fabricator, the money she kept with him pending the period she will put to bed. Austin subsequently asked her how old the pregnancy was, a statement which infuriated her and she asked him to leave her apartment. An argument ensued between them afterwards and Austin reportedly told her that before she embarrassed him over a N20,000 debt he was owing her, he will ensure that he killed her first. The Aluminum fabricator was said to have entered into her kitchen picked a knife and stabbed her repeatedly in her stomach and killed the baby in her womb, after beating her blue black. According to the victim’s husband Odia Innocent, “It was about 10:30pm on the day of the incident and a call was put through to my phone. I was at work because I was on night duty. When I picked my phone, a nurse at the other end asked me to speak with my wife. “It was when they carried out an operation on her that they discovered that the baby in her womb was stabbed five times and her womb affected. Though the operation was successful” he said. The woman is still receiving treatment in the hospital. The heart of man is desperately wicked. This Austin guy must pay for what he has done.Picture above: Austin. Source: PM NEWS
