The family of Betty Broderick, who was allegedly beaten to death her husband’s family member, are demanding justice for the deceased.
According to human rights activist, Israel Joe, the deceased, who was seven months pregnant died on December 17, 2021, after she was allegedly assaulted by the suspect identified as Jacob alias Tawho in Odimodi town, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.
In a petition dated January 4, 2022 and addressed to Burutu Area Commander, the family said that the suspect assaulted the deceased in the presence of her husband, Mr Samuel Broderick, following a heated argument that ensued between them on November 8, 2021.
Betty was rushed to Ogulaha hospital where she was confirmed to have lost her seven months pregnancy.
The doctor later referred them the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) for a C.T.C scan.
“The family of the culprit who had earlier rushed the deceased to the cottage hospital in Ogulaha later became nonchalant as Tawho had prevailed on them to disregard the cries of the deceaced on the ground that she was merely pretending of nurturing any pain,’ the petition reads.
“As a result of this abandonment, the deceased family now decided to rush her to another nearby clinic in Udi where she was briefly attended to before referring her to the General Hospital Warri where the deceased was eventually taken and treatment administered on her for a few hours before she finally gave up the ghost on December 17. Her remains has since been deposited at the Warri Central Hospital Mortuary,”
“It is instructive to state that the husband of the deceased, Mr Samuel Broderick was quite complicit in the run up to the demise of Mrs Betty Broderick as he literally stood aloof when Tawho assaulted the deceased
“Additionally, there was little or no financial support from him at the material time the deceased was hospitalised at the cottage hospital Ogulaha and when she was eventually transferred to the Centarl Hospital Warri.”

Domestic Violence leading to the death of a pregnant woman Betty Broderick.
Attention Burutu Area Commander
Nigeria Police Force
Delta State Police Command.
The family of Betty Broderick has forwarded a petition to your office through their legal counsel on how one suspected Jacob, relative to the husband of the deceased b.e.a.t up the deceased leading to her loosing her 7 months pregnancy and subsequent d.e.a.t.h.
She struggled to live, but gave up at the Central Hospital, Warri on the 17th of December 2021. Her family demands justice and arrest of Jacob.
Her husband who watched his relative b.e.a.t up his wife to pop owing to an assumption that the wife is not loyal should also be made to face the consequences of his actions.
We would not want the victim’s family to take revenge or law into their hands as the husband’s family comes to appeal for the b.u.r.i.a.l of their wife and we want the police to do the needful. More details on this space will no doubt infuriate the public.
Comr. Israel Joe.
How Osinbajo transformed my life – Former Secretary
Alhaji Abdul Gafar Bakare, former confidential secretary to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo while he was the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Lagos State has narrated his experience when he worked with him for eight years.
A devoted Muslim, Bakare had been a secretary at the Lagos State Ministry of Justice prior to the appointment of Osinbajo in 1999. But the appointment changed his life forever.
Prior working with the Vice President he was a trained secretary with no university education.
“Prof. (Osinbajo) not only encouraged me to further my education even at my relatively old age, he personally sponsored my BSc Accounting programme and even sponsored my pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina.”
Bakare recalled that he was not the only beneficiary of Osinbajo’s large heart.
“He also sponsored some of our colleagues who became lawyers while others are into other professions”.
He added that, “Prof. is a distinctive person that one needs to emulate. He is a contented man who accommodates any serious minded individual. Even with his present position he still gives recognition to those he knows before becoming Vice President.
“I am most grateful to Allah for the opportunity of working with this kind and generous boss. I also count it as a privilege to express my views about my boss,” he said.
Bakare says he has since retired from the state civil service.
While in office as Hon. Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Prof Osinbajo undertook far-reaching judicial reform in Lagos State, addressing critical areas as judges’ recruitment, remuneration, training and discipline.
The emoluments of Lagos judges witnessed and increase of more than 300 per cent, a situation that made the judges to earn more than Supreme Court Justices.
The Federal and State governments soon followed the good example he laid to gibe better packages to judicial officers.
He also addressed access to justice for the poor by the establishment of the Office of the Public Defender (OPD) and the Citizens Mediation Centre (CMC), the first of its kind in Nigeria.
These offices have now been replicated in all states across the Federation. He transformed the office as well as his immediate staff.
