A man has reportedly hacked his wife to death in Enugu state. The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Friday in Enugu that the incident occurred on March 8.
Amaraizu, who did not disclose the location of the incident, said the deceased, Mrs Nkechi Nnamani, was a mother of four children.
“It was gathered that Nkechi was hale and hearty before her husband, Sunday Nnamani, allegedly hit her with an object on the head, which left her in a coma.
“Nkechi was consequently rushed to Parklane Specialist Hospital, Enugu, where she was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty,’’ he said.
The PPRO said the Police were trying to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident; just as Nkechi’s body has been deposited in the mortuary.
