January 17, 2017 – Ibadan Man Accused Of Removing Wife’s Womb During C-Section Says Doctors Did It To Save Her Life

Last week Thursday, a woman asked an Ibadan Customary Court to dissolve her five-year-old marriage because her husband rendered her barren by conniving with doctors to remove her womb without her consent.

“My lord, Musiliu has systematically rendered me barren, because I can no longer conceive due to the removal of my womb during a caesarean surgery when I was trying to deliver my first child.

“While in the hospital, he should have informed any of my relatives that for me to have a safe delivery, my womb must be removed.

“It is not until recently that Musiliu wanted to be having sexual intercourse with me that he directed me to go for family planning.

“Then, medical personnel told me that I no longer have womb.

“Worst still, Musiliu is a drunkard and insensitive in all aspect of life,’’ Kafilat told the court, sitting in Ile Tuntun area of Ibadan.

However, Musiliu Raji, who opposed the divorce, did not deny the allegation levelled against him, but pleaded with the court to help keep his relationship with Kafilat.

“My lord, it is true that her womb was removed but the doctor informed me that her womb had already been damaged and the only option was total removal for her safe delivery.

“The doctor also advised me not to let her know until over a year when she could bear the pain,” said Musiliu who lives with Kafilat at Ologuneru area of Ibadan.

Dissolving the marriage, the court president, Mr Henric Agbaje, held that it was clear that there was no more love between the couple.

He awarded custody of their four-year-old son to Kafilat and directed Musiliu to provide N4,000 monthly allowance for his upkeep, in addition to being responsible for the child’s education.

  1. Only God knows the truth, and He will keep your son for you. Kafilat, you will live to see your son succeed in life and become a father to many children and grand children. It is better to be alive to raise your son than be dead giving birth. Take care of the one Allah gave you, don’t spoil him. Raise him to be responsible and productive. Provide good education for him, even if it means selling your clothes and jewelry and he will become “okan shosho ajanaku ti mi Igbo kiji kiji” for you, amin. The only Rhino that shakes the forest kiji kiji. Pray that God changes your husband, you don’t need a drunkard father around your son. God bless you and your son.

  2. There have been cases where women are giving partial or full hysterectomy to either save the mother or/and the baby.

    If its a planned c section the doctors will inform you of the risk and procedures they might have to carry out in case of an emergency, and you sign that you understand fully well what is about to happen.

    In an emergency c section or the woman might not be in the position to agree to a hysterectomy but its necessary to save her life and that of the baby, sometimes your partner has to make the harrowing decision of hysterectomy. Thank God ,you and the baby are alive.
