Man flogs wife for closing her legs when he tried to sleep with her
A man reportedly battered his wife for proving stubborn every time they tried to sleep together.
The incident happened in the early hours of morning at Ewusu Street in Ketu, Lagos where they reside.
It was gathered that angry Destiny Odiaka reportedly moved to touch her wife, Uzor, but she stubbornly covered her legs after much pleading and persuasion.
Odiaka then brought out cane and rained beatings on her legs to force her to open up breasts and other part of her body. She shouted and attracted their neighbours that early morning before the neighbours intervened.
It was learnt that when they eventually opened their door and the neighbours attempted to know what was the cause of the problem, the wife did not say anything but the husband replied that she has proved too stubborn in the house.
The neighbours left them and returned to their apartments concluding that it was husband and wife matter.
P.M.EXPRESS gathered that the wife thereafter reported the matter to the police and Odiaka was arrested and charged before a Lagos court for assault under the Criminal Code.
He pleaded not guilty at the Ikeja Magistrates court where he was arraigned.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs O.A. Layinka granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum. He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect her bail condition. The matter was adjourned till 5th of December, 2017.
