She was attacked by armed herdsmen who used sticks to pierce through her private part to kill the unborn child. They also pulled out the child and her womb after which they beat her and left her to die.
When soldiers went to pick her corpse upon her husband’s report, it was discovered that she’s still alive and she was rushed to Bishop Murray Hospital for treatment.
Mrs Eunice Ortom PhD, wife of the Governor of Benue state yesterday evening visited the woman identified as Mrs Blessing Akaanger at the Bishop Murray Medical Center, Makurdi. Dr. Mrs Ortom joined her in thanking God for sparing her life and thanked

She extended Gov. Ortom’s goodwill message to the Akaanger family and also took over the treatment of Mrs Blessing.
