A 33-year-old Nigerian national was nabbed on Tuesday, March 16, in Mantua, a city in Lombardy, Italy, on suspicion of brutally assaulting his wife in front of their months-old son.
The woman, also a Nigerian, was taken to hospital with multiple injuries including knife wound to her arms.
According to report from Ansa News, the couple’s apartment was found with traces of blood everywhere including a pool on the floor.
The local police chief has called on immigration services to arrange the deportation of the Nigerian man.
Nevertheless, during interrogation, the man claimed that his wife had cut herself on broken glass.
