According to reports, Eke who runs a scrap metal business on Nkpor Street, Abakpa, allegedly returned home drunk on Wednesday, September 9, and demanded food from his wife.
The wife told him that she could not give him any food because he didn’t give any money to make it.
She reportedly mentioned to him that the little food in the house was meant for their children. Her reaction got him angry and he allegedly pounced on her, beating her until she slumped.
Concerned neighbors rushed the woman to the hospital where she was admitted. She however died on Thursday, September 9.
Neighbors say the married couple was constantly on loggerheads over ten years because the man did not care for his family.
