According to reports, the suspect, “Eke Nweofia”, who is a scrap metal dealer on Nkpor Street in Abakpa, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crime.

“Mama Goodluck”, a mother of four, was beaten unconscious by her husband, according to eyewitness Chibuike Ozor. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead in the early hours of Thursday morning.

After returning home from work on Wednesday night, Eke Nweofia demanded food from his wife but was told that the only food in their home belonged to their children.

Because the suspect did not provide money for food before leaving for work, she was forced, according to her, to beg for a bowl of garri from a neighbor in order to feed her children.

As a result of this response, her husband pounced on her and brutally beat her. She had collapsed before we could reach her.

Because of this, we assisted in getting her to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead in the early hours of Thursday morning.’ “Ozor” proclaimed.

Witnesses reported that Eke had a habit of beating his wife at the slightest provocation, according to the eyewitness accounts.
