There has been an uptick in violence against women worldwide. That violence is especially noticeable in the case of husbands and wives. But this latest case of spousal abuse is one of the most heinous that we've ever come across.
Here is a report, from our friends at popular African news site naij.com.
A man, Victor Ojiaku, has beaten up his wife and stabbed her with a broken bottle on her private parts after accusing her of sleeping with a teenage boy who works for him.
LIB reports that Ojiaku, who is an automobile parts dealer, attacked his 27-year-old wife Faith Ojiaku, who is a mother of three, at their home in White Sand, Isheri-Osun in Lagos state last week. According to reports, after the whole battery, Victor locked Faith up for two days, making it impossible for her to call any family member or friend in order to seek medical attention.
When she was eventually allowed to seek medical attention, she used a doctor's phone to call her sister who is with the Lagos State Domestic and S*xual Violence Response Team, who have since taken up the case.
Victor was however arrested and he appeared at the Ejigbo Magistrates’ Court last week where he was granted bail and case postponed till end of January. He is facing charges for attacking his teenage worker who he accused of sleeping with his wife. He is facing a six-count charge bordering on grievous bodily harm, threat to life and assault.
