Tragedy occurred on Tuesday morning in Ebonyi State as a middle-aged pregnant housewife pushed her husband to death from a two-storey building.

The victim, Mr Nwoga Maduabuchi, from Akparata village, Igbeagu community in the Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, was said to have been married to the suspect, his second wife, from Uburu community, in the Ohaozara Local Government Area and lived in Abakaliki, the state capital.

A security officer, who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity, said the victim was arguing with his second wife over a family issue, when the incident occurred.

According to the source, “The man is just a victim of domestic violence.

“He had two wives. The first wife is from Izzi Local Government Area; while the second wife is from Uburu, in the Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state.

“It’s a family matter. But the second became so enraged over the matter and acted the way she did, by pushing her husband down from the two-storey building. That’s the height of it. That’s the height of wickedness.”

Another reliable source, who equally pleaded not to be mentioned in print, said the suspect was heavily pregnant but was intermittently having quarrels with her late husband, adding that, “The second wife was constantly nagging.”

Another community source, Ogo Mike, described the situation as horrible, saying the victim was an elder brother to his friend.

When PUNCH Metro contacted the Police Public Relations Officer, Ebonyi State Police Command, DSP Ukandu Joshua, he claimed he had yet to be informed of the incident by the Divisional Police Officer.

According to him, he was not in the know of where, in Abakaliki, the incident took place, in order to ascertain what happened.

When our correspondent inquired, he asked, “Where did it happen so I can reach the DPO of the place?”
