The Plateau State Government has taken over the welfare of a pregnant wife, Hauwa Shagari, whose hand was cut off by her husband and an Inspector of Police, Ibrahim Shagari.

Inspector Shagari has since been arrested by the Plateau State Police Command.

Speaking on Hauwa’s state, the Plateau State Commissioner of Women Affairs, Caroline Dafur, said that the seven months pregnant mother of three was recuperating in the hospital.

Dafur said: “The Plateau Commissioner for Health and the Medical Director, Plateau Specialist Hospital have helped in ensuring she got the best treatment.

“Her bills are being paid, her children are also well taken care of by the state.

“We intend to keep her in a safe place when she fully recovers.”

Dafur also disclosed that the Ministry of Women Affairs and the Plateau State Gender Commission have begun investigation into the incident and would ensure justice is served.

She noted that domestic violence, particularly physical abuse such as the case of Shagari, could have devastating phycological impact on victims.

“We are aware that some victims may experience long-term psychological effects such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety,” said the commissioner.

She condemned the act and described it as a barbaric show of insanity.

She assured the public that the case would be handled legally.

She lauded the Plateau State Police Command for acting swiftly by arresting the perpetrator to serve as a deterrent to others like him.
