Man finally delivers deathblow to wife after 15-yr marriage

What started out as an amazing love affair between Obiageli Eze met Ikechukwu Anajekwu about 15 years ago, then to marriage, has now led to a murder.

 

Not only did her Prince Charming take to mentally and physical abuse, he also turned her to his punching bag, gifting her a black eye every other day.

On January 19, 2015, she received her last punch when she breathed her last.

Speaking on behalf of the family, her younger brother narrated what led to the murder of his sister.

“When Ikechukwu came for Obiageli’s hand in marriage, he told us that he runs a restaurant in Brazil. After the marriage however, he was arrested for drug trafficking. He was imprisoned in Cameroon, but his wife waited patiently for him until he finished his term.

Even while he was in prison, my sister said she used to send him money. It was after his return from prison that the marriage began to fall apart. Ikechukwu became violent and started beating his wife over any real or imagined slight.

Our family invited them to the village. The man accused my sister of being a witch. He said she couldn’t give him a child after years of marriage. He also accused her of being responsible for his set back in business. That was part of the reason she brutally murdered her,” he narrated to Telegraph.
