A man, Destiny Odiaka has battered his wife Uzor for proving stubborn whenever they went to their bedroom to sleep as husband and wife. The incident happened in the early hours of morning at Ewusu Street in Ketu, Lagos where they reside.
It was gathered that the angry husband reportedly moved to touch her wife but she stubbornly covered her legs after much pleading and persuasion.
Odiaka then brought out the cane and rained it on her legs to force her to open up br*asts and other parts of her body. She shouted and attracted their neighbors that early morning and the neighbors intervened.
It was learned that when they eventually opened their door and the neighbors attempted to know what was the cause of the problem, the wife did not say anything but the husband replied that she has proved too stubborn in the house. The neighbors left them and returned to their apartments concluding that it was husband and wife matter.
P.M.EXPRESS gathered that the wife thereafter reported the matter to the police and Odiaka was arrested and charged before a Lagos court for assault under the Criminal Code.
