A mother of two who ran away from her husbands home was traced to a brothel where she operates as a prostitute.
According to reports, the woman had left her husband and two children one evening on the pretext of going to buy something at a provision store and was not seen since that day, making her husband to go through untold trauma and suspicion from her family.
But luck ran out of her when the husband caught up with her quite unexpectedly.
According Kabiru Skido, a member of the Civilian JTF who helped in tracing the woman to the brothel she was staying, he was checking vehicles along Baga market road when a man ran to him and requested that he should stop a Keke NAPEP (Tricycle), that was approaching them.
“I stopped the oncoming Keke NAPEP when suddenly, the man ran to one of them and started dragging a woman out. My colleagues and I intervened to know what was happening.
He explained that the woman was his wife and that he traced her to a brothel behind the market but rather than follow him home, she jumped into a Keke NAPEP and was about to escape once again.
The woman suddenly started shouting saying 'yes, you are not taking good care of me. I have to go and find something to take care of myself.'
When we realised that they were about to raise a crowd around us, and at a time they started talking in their local Igbo language, we invited an elderly Igbo businessman from the market, called Pa Okoro, who came and took them away," Skido said.
The mediator, Pa Okoro, later narrated that the woman told him her husband had not been giving her pocket money and that he also refused to set up a business for her. This, she said, forced her into going to the brothel to raise some money for her upkeep.
“I invited some elders that joined me in settling them and she has returned back to the husband’s house. It is now left for him to know how to take care of her or she will go back and be seeing other men again.
If you do not know how to feed your dog very well, it will certainly feed from the garbage,” he said.
