A middle-aged woman named Mrs. Ngozi Chukwuani who was chained to a pillar for 12 hours by her husband has been rescued by officers of the Ebonyi State Police Command.
Mrs. Chukwuani’s ordeal took place at their residence in Abakaliki, the state capital and her husband (whose name is Uche) reportedly fled with the key of the padlock.
Neighbors who spoke with Tribune Online said that Mr. Uche hit his daughter on the head with the chain when she attempted to stop him from the beating he gave her mother.
Condemning the incident, the Special Assistant to Governor David Umahi on security and utility in the capital city, Mr. Nchekwube Saints Anakor, said:
This evening (Tuesday) at no.1 Ike street, Mr. Uche Chukwuani chained his wife to a pillar in their building and ran away with the key. Thanks to Ekeaba police whose timely response saved the situation.
I had to send a welder who cut the chain. One question kept on coming to my mind, what did this woman do to warrant being chained like a dog by her own husband. Does whatever transpired warrant such dehumanization?
Always be careful in what you do for ignorance is no excuse in law. I am always on patrol till daybreak expecting to hear from you. The Neighborhood Watch is stationed in every part of the town protecting ur areas. Reach out to them for any challenges or call me.”
Mrs. Chukwuani told the news outlet that her husband had earlier threatened to deal with her because his mistress is suffering.
