A man, Destiny Odiaka, has flogged his wife, Uzor, for refusing him sex. He reportedly tried to make love to his wife shortly after they went to sleep in the bedroom but she had rebuffed him and shut her legs. Angered by her refusal, he had flogged her arms and legs, forcing her to allow him access to her private parts. Her cry had alerted neighbours who intervened.
Odinaka reportedly told them that his wife had always denied him sex. They thereafter left the couple to sort out their differences saying it was a private issue. PM Express reports that Uzor later reported to the police who arrested her husband.
He was arraigned at the Ikeja Magistrates’ Court. O.A. Layinka, the presiding Magistrate granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum. He was remanded in prison pending when he will perfect the conditions and the matter adjourned till December 5, 2017.
