A Nigerian man identified as Henry Chima has been accused of brutalizing his wife, Ifeoma Mbonu, over a piece of land in Lekki, Lagos State.
It was gathered that the couple have been married for 9 years and blessed with two kids. But Chima has been beating Ifeoma since 2012 even while they were in Malaysia.
According to Instablog9ja, the latest incident happened on Friday when the wife advised her husband against selling their land. She’s currently hospitalized after her husband turned her into a punchbag.
“I returned from my shop that evening and we started arguing over a piece of land that he wanted to sell. He stood up and started hitting me because I advised him not to. The security man had to intervene and quickly rushed me to the hospital.
“This isn’t the first time he is beating me as he has been doing so since 2012 even while we were in Malaysia. It was so bad that the Malaysian government arrested him and told me to report to the Nigerian embassy over there.
“My parents are aware and have been pleading with me to stay. The latest incident was reported at the Ajiwe police station, Ajah, Lagos. Henry lied to them and bribed them to close the case.
I’m still at the hospital and I desperately need help to get out of this marriage, “ she said.
KanyiDaily had also reported how a Nigerian man dumped his wife after her mother denied him access to their three kids because he didn’t visit her house to greet her.
