July 14, 2013 – Man Kills Wife Who Refused To Breastfeed Twin Babies In Edo State At His Command

A man identified as Endurance Enadeba, has allegedly killed his wife in Benin during an argument on breastfeeding of their newborn set of twins. The incident happened in Upper Sakponba area of Benin, as the couple was preparing for the naming ceremony of their twins.

The tragedy followed an argument on when the woman identified as Osarumwense should breastfeed the babies. According to eyewitnesses, the couple celebrated the birth of the twins last Sunday and was preparing for the naming ceremony when the tragedy occurred.

The husband, Endurance Enadeba, was said to have hit the wife on the head with an object, which resulted in her death.  He was said to have requested the wife to breastfeed the babies who were crying, but the woman reportedly said she wanted to urinate first.

The witnesses said the husband went to where the wife was to urinate, and a fracas ensued, which led to the man hitting the wife on the head. Father of the deceased woman, who gave his name as Eghenayayore, was seen weeping, and cursing profusely over the corpse.

He explained that his daughter called to inform him about the incident, but that she died before they rushed her to the hospital, adding that the husband fled when the wife collapsed. “He killed my daughter because of breastfeeding the twins. The twins are at home now, who will give them breastmilk? Why did he kill my young daughter? This girl was born in 1996. We were preparing to name the babies tomorrow, because it was their first issue,” Eghenayayore said.

When contacted, Edo Police Command Spokesman, DSP Moses Eguavoen confirmed the incident and said the husband has been arrested from where he was hiding.

  1. May her soul rest in peace. Marriage is for grown ups and mature people. She is suppose to be in school, all the may her soul rest in peace

  2. Let d useless man continue d breast feedin nw dat he has mourdered his young wife.A woman dat passess thru labour pain authomatically knws dat breast feedin is nutn to her kids, so wats his stress?

  3. What sought of parents did the deceased have letting, her marry at a young age 17 was too young to have babies. And now that she’s dead let the same man breastfeed them since that’s what he wanted. This whole early marriage thing has very bad consequences poor girl has died and newly born twins are now motherless. I thought only girls in the southern region of Africa suffered early marriages due to selfish parents.

  4. There is a problem somewhere, I doubt if such a thing can happen just after celebrating the birth of there twins. Jealous from somewhere has led to this situation.

  5. nawo 4 d parents ooo @ d age of 17 dat child is stil adolecsent what kind of marriage is dat. is she not surpose 2 b in skul at dis modle world GOD 4BID UNMATURD GIIL.

  6. The woman is just so unfortunate & d stupid husband doesn’t knw that a woman who just gave birth should be carefully taken care. Its just so sad

  7. May her gentle soul rest in peace. What is a girl of 17 looking 4 in husbands house? This is a lesson 2 men that beat up there wife’s, any thing can happen @ any time. Love your wife……..
