According to sources, the wife of Samuel Chidi who has previously delivered twice through cesarean section bled to death in their room due to complications from the forced delivery.

Also, eyewitnesses giving an account of what really happened disclosed that Samuel insisted his wife delivered at home so he hired a fake midwife who administered wrong injections and dragged the baby out of the woman while her husband pinned down her legs.

This resulted in the woman bleeding profusely and her husband who could have contacted a Nurse living in the same compound failed to do so, locked his wife until she bled to death.

Samuel also failed to inform anyone about the unfortunate incident which happened around 11 pm until later in the afternoon that a Nurse came to check on her that was when they realised she was dead.
