Man Strangles Pregnant Wife To Death For Refusing To Open Gate On Time
The Anambra State Police Command has apprehended one Ikechukwu Obiora for allegedly murdering his pregnant wife in Otolo Nnewi, Nnewi South LGA of the state.
It was gathered that the suspect strangled the deceased to death.
Oniora reportedly killed his wife, Ebere Obiora, on Thursday, March 2, 2023 after she refused to open the gate for him on time.
Admitting to the crime, Ikechukwu reportedly told his in-laws that he was angry when he returned home and his wife refused to open the gate on time.
He explained that when she opened the gate he first started to slap her before angrily grabbing her neck and strangling her to death.
He says, “I returned home in the morning of March 2, 2023, and was knocking at the gate, but my wife did not open immediately. In that anger, I started shouting at her.
“I first slapped and hit her from the gate to the house before angrily grabbing her on the neck and strangling her to death. I couldn’t believe what happened because I never expected that such actions would lead to her death.
I eventually abandoned the corpse and left out of fear and confusion, after confiding in few persons who I sought advice on what to do.”
