Medical doctor allegedly beaten to death by husband

A medical doctor has been reportedly beaten to death by her husband.

Scene of domestic violence

A Consultant Paediatric Surgeon with the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi Araba, Dr Hestiana Thomas, has been sent to her early grave purportedly by her husband in a dangerous case of domestic violence, reports the Nation Newspaper.


According to the report, the amiable doctor who had a passion for children, was a victim of regular battery by her husband and father of her two children, who is also a Consultant Clinical Pathologist at the same university.

Though the staff of the specialist medical outfit have been talking in hush tones about the death of the mother of two, it is a general consensus that she was beaten to death by her husband who has a history of beating her in the past.


She was said to have reported for duty three days ago, until she was brought in yesterday to LUTH battered.

“A close examination of her body revealed a lot of lacerations. In fact, I noticed that the head had a deep cut. When other colleagues also saw her, they said there was a deep cut on her skull, because they saw pierced bone.

Her colleagues, especially the female doctors, were stunned when Dr Thomas was rushed in,” a colleague who was part of the team that treated her told the Nation.
