Man Slashes Wife’s Head Over Infidelity Allegation

A married woman based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Mrs Chindima Diala, is battling with an injury allegedly inflicted on her head by husband.
It was learnt that the incident happened on November 29, when Diala accused her husband, Norbert, of engaging in extramarital affairs.
Our correspondents learnt that trouble started that evening after he arrived home late and his wife alleged that he was returning from his girlfriend’s place.
Norbert was said to have taken offence and descended on his wife with a plank, slashing her head in the process.
Diala told City Round that her 11 years of marriage with Norbert was characterised with violence, adding that their daughter pleaded with Norbert in vain to stop beating her mother.
She said, “While I was on the road that day, I saw him coming out of his mistress’ house and I was very angry. When I got home, I locked up my room and slept off. All of a sudden, he broke the door. I was shocked. He started beating me. My daughter and housekeeper were begging him. He pushed my daughter and hit my head with a plank. I was covered with blood and managed to escape. This was not the first time this would happen. There was a time he hit me and I fainted. It happens over and over again.”
The 39 –year-old woman explained that he had been enduring the assaults because she did not want to be a single mother and be solely responsible for the upkeep of their three children aged between five and 10.
She said whenever she mentioned the name of any of her husband’s girlfriends, he would get angry and beat her up, adding that she was tired of the abusive marriage.
