Husband Breaks Wife’s Head With An Iron Rod In Enugu
A man identified as Mr Obinwanne Chiafo leaves a ugly wound on his wife head after hitting her with a knife iron rod.
The victim, a 27-year-old mother of 8, Chiamaka Okechi will forever live with the scar inflicted on her by the man she got married to 13 years ago.
According to reports, Okechi, was forced into early marriage at the age of 13, and had been constantly abuse by the alleged perpetrator and husband.
Okechi, who hails from Ezeama Mgbagbuowa in Ezeagu Local Government Area of Enugu State, had endured years of torture, physical and emotional abuse from Chiafo, who hails from the same village with her.
While narrating her ordeal, Okechi said Chaifo, father of her eight children, said she has severely battered and forcefully ejected her from their matrimonial home five years ago, including taking custody of her six children.
She has not been allowed access to these children.
Although he remarried, he later came back to plead for forgiveness and impregnated her again before abandoning her again.
The latest incident was on the 21st August, 2020, when the estranged husband came to her house and unleashed terror on her.
He pounced on me, kicked and punched me very hard all over my body, including several heavy blows that landed on my chest.
I screamed as a result of the excruciating pain, but he kept on and brought an iron rod which he used to hit my head, causing me severe head injury. It was at that point that he ran away.
According to an NGO, the victim went ahead to the Police station at Aguobu Owa, to report the incident but, unfortunately, was asked to bring money which she couldn’t afford.
She explained that after the incident, she has been suffering from severe pains on her head and chest and has been passing sleepless nights.
She also stated that she is unable to go home for fear that her husband would return to carry out his threat to kill her.
She pleaded with the law enforcement agencies to arrest her husband before he kills her.
