She was subsequently attacked by the duo.

The victim’s elder brother, Anayo Warisi, while speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt, said his sister was seriously injured and rushed to a hospital.

He said, “It was this morning (Monday); my sister’s husband brought another woman to their house. So, she asked him why he did that. He started beating her.

“Then he cut her all over her body with a machete. But her leg was worse. My siblings took her to a hospital in Elele, but she was rejected because the injury was serious. So, they moved her to the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital, where she was admitted.
