Man Reports Himself To Police After He Accidentally Slapped His Wife To Death After A Heated Quarrel

36-year-old Onyekachi Anele has been arrested for slapping his wife to death after the two engaged in a quarrel in Imo state. The father of three (a 4-year-old daughter, 1-year-old son and a stepson) – had just returned from night vigil when all hell broke loose in his family. According to reports, Anele’s wife, 32-year-old Chikodi, asked him to give her son from an earlier marriage, N100 to take to school.

In his statement to the police, he said: “I got married to my late wife Chikodi Anele over four years ago. She had a son for another man before we got married. We have been living together in peace. We have two children. Our first child, a girl, is four years old while the second child is a boy, who is just one-year-old. On May 31, 2016, I went to my church, Jesus Disciples Fellowship, where we had a vigil. I came back around 5: 30 am and started playing Christian music. My wife came to where I was and said that I should give my stepson N100 naira to go to school. I told her that I had no money with me.”

“You see, my late wife was hypertensive; she became very angry that I did not give my stepson N100. She started to insult me. I got angry and slapped her. She slapped me in return. I was shocked by her effrontery and slapped her a second time. She fell down and fainted. I rushed her to City Hospital, Nekede. On getting there, the doc­tor checked her and confirmed that she was dead. I went to the nearby police station at Umuguma and reported the matter to the police and they arrested me.”

“I love my wife. I had no intention to kill her. It was misunderstanding and annoyance that prompted me to slap her and she died. Up till now, it looks like a dream and a mystery to me.”

The Deputy Commissioner of Po­lice in-charge of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Hafiz Inuwa said that no visitor has come for Anele and that his wife’s corpse has been taken to the mortuary.
