Father-in-law places N100k bounty on Edo man who killed pregnant wife
A bereaved father, Adun Samuel, has offered to pay N100,000 to anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest of his son-in-law, simply identified as Inuaghata, for the killing of his pregnant daughter, Osaretin.
Samuel told newsmen in Benin on Friday that his daughter had three children with the fleeing husband.
He said he was told that his daughter had been killed by her husband, adding that the son-in-law had gone into hiding since May 24, 2023, when he committed the crime.
Explaining his ordeal to journalists, an aggrieved Samuel said, “I hail from Orhionmwon Local Government Area. My daughter was killed by her husband; she was 23 years old. The incident happened at Egba on May 24.
“I do not understand the problem they had that led to the killing of my daughter. I was called that my daughter had been killed. He used a knife to slit her throat, and she was pregnant when she was killed. I want the boy arrested.
“I will give anybody N100, 000 for information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect. The boy had not formally married my daughter. His parents are both dead. I have called his brother and ran away after killing my daughter. His name is Inuaghata.”
