A married woman has been paraded on the streets in Agulueri, in Anambra state after she allegedly used her waist to kill her husband, who is preparing for the burial or her mom.
According to a voice in background who recorded the video that found its way to the internet, the woman who has been called out on previous occasions for alleged infidelity in marriage, killed her husband so she can be free to live her adulterous life.
One of the villagers who spoke to latestngnews.com in anonymity, said the woman was paraded in her birthday suit, because she is responsible for the death of her husband who many addressed by name ‘Okosisi Aguleri’.
They also believed deceased died while having sex with a woman believed to be his wife. Angry villagers accused the woman of being responsible for the man’s death, took justice into their hands, humiliated her by leaving her naked outside the compound where this occurred, as they accused her of infidelity.
Without any post-mortem autopsy and investigations, the men have already concluded that the woman is responsible. They could also be heard mocking her barrenness. This highlights once more the plight of women in rural Africa.
The Anambra state police command confirmed the incident, saying that the woman was rescued from a mob in Aguleri community of the state on Saturday March 12.
The police said a principal suspect had been arrested in relation to the inhuman treatment. The state police spokesman, Tochukwu Ikenga, said;
“The Anambra State Police operatives have today, 12/3/2022, rescued a female victim from an angry mob in Aguleri.
“The rescue was as a result of a report from a trending video where a lady was publicly molested and assaulted on an alleged incident of causing the death of her late husband.
“The Commissioner of Police, CP Echeng Echeng, while describing the act as barbaric, states that one suspect is already in custody and ordered an immediate study of the video with the aim to identify the suspects, arrest and bring them to book.
“Further information reveals that the deceased had already been buried before the video started trending. The victim was rescued and she is currently receiving medical care in the hospital. More development shall be communicated please.”
