The victim who spoke in Igbo language said the suspect put out their kerosene lamp and tore her undies in attempt to rape her, adding that she raised alarm which attracted her sick husband who was laying in another bed, as she resisted the rapist in the process.


She said the suspect stabbed her with a dagger as she dispossessed him of a sharp cutlass he was brandishing, adding that the suspect accosted her husband stabbing his only functional hand.

According to her, she used the cutlass on the suspect’s head severally, forcing him to abandon his trousers and escaped naked with severe injuries on the head.

But the suspect who also spoke at the hospital claimed ignorance of the incident about Mrs. Edeneh and her family, saying that he was injured around Mile 5 Illah Road, Ugbolu near the Asaba Campus of Delta State University during a clash with some local people while tending his herds of cattle.


Meanwhile, Mr. Timothy Edeneh who is just recovering from partial paralysis said he is having a hard time getting needed funds to enable his critically injured wife get recommended medical treatment.
