A Nigerian man, Salami Olajide a.k.a Stubborn has been accused of beating his wife, Salami Ruth, to coma after she threatened to divorce him at their residence in Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
According to PM Express, the mother of three was fed up with the toxic relationship and threatened to opt-out the marriage on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
Her decision didn’t go down well with ‘Stubborn’, so he beat her up mercilessly and even allegedly tried to force deadly insecticide, sniper, down her throat for trying to quit their marriage of 6 years.
Salami, who is nursing a six-month-old baby, was taken to Ajayi Hospital within the community where she is receiving treatment,
The couple’s landlord, Alhaji Lawal Tanimola, confirmed the incident, saying the assault was so brutal that he had to discontinue his prayer and mobilise other tenants to force their door open to rescue the victim whose call for help was too consistent to be ignored.
He revealed that in their nearly-two-years’ stay in his house, the couple has never gone a week without fighting.
“We tried to intervene, but the husband stopped us, warning us to back off as we are not a party to their marriage. Just like ever before, he was arrested and we all heaved a sigh of relief. But we were stunned to see the man released the next day on the order from above as it was a pure family affair,” Tanimola told PM Express.
