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