A 37-year-old man, Ifeanyi Ajaero, has been arrested for allegedly chaining his 28-old -wife, Obiageli Ajaero, to generator from the night of Friday 14th April till the morning of Saturday 15th April 2017.
Obiageli was said to have been seriously battered by her husband before being chained. The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the incident happened at Ewooluwo, Sagamu.
He said the suspect who is a member of the already disbanded merchant Navy used a handcuff to chain his wife who has become so weak as a result of serious beating from the husband. .
Oyeyemi said Ajaero’s neighbours who had been witnessing his frequent beating of his wife alerted the police of the latest happening and got the suspect arrested. On interrogation, he said the suspect admitted chaining the woman to the generator, but he claimed that his action was for “self-defence.”
Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, who described the action of the suspect as the height of wickedness has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to Anti- Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the state Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
The man has displayed symptoms of advanced psychosis.
He shouldn't be allowed around living things.
Wonder what he was doing in a marriage when he ought to be straitjacketed and foaming in the mouth inside the solitary ward of a psych facility.
My fear is that the law may not take it's course; family will wade in and throw her back at his sadistic mercy.
She won't say no. "Marriage is for better or worse."
