Man beats wife to death in Enugu, absconds

A middle-aged man at Aku, Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State, allegedly beat his wife to death over a misunderstanding.

The deceased, identified as Mrs Angela Oyibo, 36, was said to have engaged her husband, Charles Oyibo, 50,  in a heated argument. He allegedly pounced on her and gave her the beating of her life.

Vanguard learned that the attack led to her being rushed to the hospital, where doctors battled unsuccessfully to save her life.

It was learned that her husband escaped to an unknown destination, having discovered that she did not survive the attack.

An eyewitness said the deceased was beaten into a state of unconsciousness, adding that efforts to save her life proved futile.

The eyewitness said: “She was unable to raise her hands and legs; she was totally weak.

“People suspected she may be pregnant, but the doctors that attended to her before she died are in a better position to state her condition before her death.

“None of the people that rushed her to the hospital can tell what the problem with her husband that led to that kind of beating was.”

Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the incident, said investigations had since commenced, adding that a manhunt for the fleeing killer-husband was ongoing.
