Reports has it that a man, identified as Egwu Francis Emmanuel who hails from Amachara Village, Ebonyi State, beat his wife Mrs Ezinne into coma and also threatened to beat her again when she recovers. According to an undisclosed eye witness who couldn’t report to the Police for fear of being killed by the culprit who is notorious and known for cult related activities, “This incidence is a repeated occurrence in the neighborhood. Even the wife is afraid to run away from the marriage as she is afraid of what may be her fate. As I’m talking to you now, she is lying in coma in Medical Center Afikpo. And the husband is still bragging outside of the hospital to pounce on her immediately she regains consciousness.
The witness however said that he would be happy and grateful if the man can be reported to the police. “He does all these because his immediate elder brother is a Barrister and he brags that nothing can happen to him. So, I am appealing to well meaning Nigerians, especially organizations who fight domestic violence, to come to her rescue.” he said.
The couple, who got married December 24th, 2015, is blessed with two children.
