  • Hubby not guilty, says PPRO

 

A patent medicine dealer, Mr. Uche Madumere, has allegedly beaten his 35-year-old police wife, Sergeant Mariam Sule, to death because of his mistress.
The deceased, attached to Igbologun Police Station, Snake Island, Lagos State, was said to have been killed by her husband during a quarrel over his alleged lover, Egnes.
The incident occurred on November 20, about 10p.m., at Number 10, Sholake Street, Iju-Ishaga area of the metropolis.

Before Mariam got married to Uche, she already had three children. She married Uche three years ago who also came into the marriage with a daughter.
Trouble was said to have started when Egnes visiting Uche whenever Mariam goes to office. Mariam wouldn’t have known of the alleged clandestine visits, but for some neighbours.
One of Mariam’s brothers, Mr. Kelvin Ndu, said that he and other family members learnt about Mariam’s death the following day. The family was not too happy about the delay in notifying them about Mariam’s death.
According to Ndu, it was Mariam’s son, Gideon Adaji, who alerted them of the incident.

Ndu said: “Uche told me that the quarrel between him and Mariam started after a woman brought food to him. He said that Mariam protested against the presence of the woman in their matrimonial home. Uche said that he didn’t have food to eat at home, which was why he called Egnes to bring food to the house for him and his daughter to eat. Uche said that when Egnes brought the food; he was seated outside. He told her to take the food into the house. Shortly after Egnes entered, Uche got up and went to the backyard to do something.”

According to Uche, he was still at the backyard when he heard screaming. He rushed to his apartment and met his wife fighting with Egnes.
Ndu added: “Uche said when he rushed in; he met the door to the sitting room locked. He said he forced it opened and asked his wife what was the problem? He said Mariam accused him of bringing a strange woman into their matrimonial home, while she was away. According to him, Mariam asked him why he brought the woman home knowing she was at home. Uche said he separated them and Egnes escaped, but Mariam ran after her and then later returned and went into her room, while he stayed outside.

“According to him, a few minutes later, his daughter, who was in her room when they were fighting, rushed out to inform me that ‘Aunty’ had fainted.
“Uche said he rushed back into the room and found Mariam on the floor. He claimed to have poured water on her and took her to Ifako General Hospital where he was told he brought her to the hospital dead. That same night, he said he took her body home and then called her first son, Gideon, who is about 19 years old, to inform him about the death of his mother.

“According to Uche, Gideon said he couldn’t come out; that it was late and that their gate had been locked. He promised to see him the following day.
“Uche said that he could not wait till the following day. He went to pick Gideon at home and they both deposited the body at a mortuary in Agege after that Gideon called his mother’s family members to inform them of what happened.”

Mariam’s family, suspicious because Uche allegedly didn’t report the case to them, reported the case to the Paint House Police Station at Iju. Uche and Egnes were arrested.
Ndu said: “The case was transferred to the State Criminal Investigations Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba, for further investigations. To our shock, Uche was released by the policemen four days later. Even before the outcome of autopsy result.”

Ndu accused the police of compromising the investigation. He called on the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, to ensure that his sister gets justice.
“As we speak, neither Uche nor his family members had visited our family to commiserate with us and possibly, plan for Mariam’s burial. Uche paid bride price of his wife. He thinks he does not owe us explanation of what happened to our sister. He has to tell us the cause of our sister’s death,” Ndu said.

Gideon said: “I spoke with her on that fateful day she died. I promised to see her at 9p.m. But I couldn’t make it due to my work.”
The landlord of the house, who does not want his name in print, said: “I saw the policewoman on the day of the incident. She was running after Egnes; we tried to intervene. I calmed her down and she explained to me, why she was angry. I asked the husband why he brought another woman into their matrimonial home, instead of going to a hotel.

Uche responded that I shouldn’t mind what his wife was saying. After Mariam went in, I heard a noise between husband and wife. A few minutes later, the husband rushed to me, calling for my assistance; he said that his wife had fainted.

I rushed into their room; I met the woman on the floor. I raised her hand, she was weak. I told the husband to take his wife to the hospital as she was dying. I rushed down to one of my tenants who has a car to assist in taking her to the hospital. I returned to their apartment to discover that the policewoman was dead.

“I told Uche that his wife was dead, that he should call the police. He said that he would carry the body to the hospital before calling the police.”
One of Uche’s neighbours, who does not want his name mentioned, claimed that Uche beat his wife to death because of another woman.

The neighbour said: “Uche’s mistress used to bring food to him whenever the policewoman was not around. The policewoman comes home once a week due to the distance of her workplace to her home. I heard him calling for help, saying that his wife had fainted. He was the one who beat the woman for daring to attack his visitor before the woman fainted.

That was not the first time Uche would be beating his wife.”
The Lagos state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), a Superintendent of Police (SP), Chike Oti, said the police did not compromise as alleged.
He said: “The husband is not a culprit. The policewoman had altercation with another woman and one thing led to the other she slumped and died.

“The policewoman did not fight with her husband and we cannot keep him in the cell that was why we released him. But we are investigating the woman that fought with the policewoman.”

I married my sister to obey God, avoid divorce –Brother

Published

on

Twenty-five-years old Mr. Cornelius Chiadi Ezeibekwe, from Ekwulobia town in Aguata Local Government Area, Anambra State has become the buzz of the moment following his wedding to his younger sister, aged 17 years.

The youth of the community who couldn’t comprehend the taboo burnt down the Sabbath Church where the two were joined as husband and wife. Chiadi who is the sixth of the 10 children of Mr. Louis Ezeibekwe, is a Mathematics teacher at Community Secondary School, Isuofia, also in Aguata local government area.

When Saturday Telegraph visited the home of the newly wedded couple at Agba village, Ekwulobia, Chiadi was seen busy marking examination scripts in a tension free environment while his wife remained indoor throughout our correspondent’s visit to the couple. According to Chiadi, his sister and wife was a student of Federal Government Technical College, GTC, Awka, but had to leave school sometime ago to enable her observe Sabbath rites known as ‘Shimta’. “It was during the observation, which lasts for one year that the marriage took place.

In that period of ‘Shimta’, she must remain in the compound for one year. It was further learnt that Chiadi’s sister had already left school because of the controversy generated by her marriage to her elder brother.

On the reasons why he married his sister, Chiadi said: “I am a Sabbath and when I searched through the scriptures, I discovered that Bible permits marriage between a brother and a sister. So, I went ahead with the arrangement to marry my younger sister.

“The marriage ceremony was observed in our family compound, which also serves as a place of worship for us. My immediate elder brother, Paul Ezeibekwe, the pastor, was present during the ceremony.

“What happened was that when we decided to get married, we told our parents our intention and my father asked us if we knew what we were about to do. I told him that we searched through the scriptures and that God sanctioned it. It was after this that our parents consented.

“However, our other relations objected to the idea when they learnt of the plan and when we ignored them and went ahead with the marriage, they and other villagers burnt the Sabbath Church where we used to worship because they thought it was in that place that we worship, not knowing that we had since abandoned the place and are worshipping in our compound.

The burning of the church does not mean anything to us. “God told me to marry my sister and she also saw the same vision I saw earlier. There are places in the Bible that support such marriage. Those in doubt should read Songs of Solomon Chapters 4 and 5 and 1st Corinthians Chapter 7. “Since we took this decision, I have not felt anything unusual, or felt that I did anything wrong. In the school where I teach, many people asked me about it and I boldly refered them to the Bible.

“One of the reasons for marrying my sister is to avoid divorce which is rampant these days because even if we divorce each other, we will remain in the same family. Besides, by marrying one’s sibling, there will not be the possibility of introducing ugly situations, like diseases or social vices into the family. “

However, their 78 years frail looking father, appeared not to be in total control of the behaviour of his children, His eldest son, Emeka, who is a member of the Winners’ Church and resides in Port Harcourt, condemned the marriage, saying it was a taboo. He said: “I cannot support evil no matter how it is painted.”

Though the family was originally Catholics, they later changed to Seventh Day Adventist Church before switching to their own brand of Sabbath worship, with one of the children of Louis Ezeibekwe, Paul, as the pastor.

The issue drew the attention of some elders of the community a they immediately went to the traditional prime minister of Ekwulobia, Chief Gabriel Ezeukwu to lodge a complaint following the absence of the traditional ruler of the area, Igwe Emmanuel Onyeneke, who is currently out of the country. Following consultations with other elders in the community, Ezeukwu ordered that the marriage be dissolved and a cleansing of the community of the bad omen be done to avert any calamity.

The Parish Priest of St Joseph’s Catholic Church, Ekwulobia is had begun the cleansing. On whether he would submit himself for cleansing by the Catholic Church, Chiadi said; “Inasmuch as I would not like to break the law of the land, I would leave everything to God to decide because it was God that gave me the vision to marry my sister.

“Except my eldest brother, Emeka, every other member of the family supported this marriage. Our father only changed his mind following the chaos our marriage generated. “It is not the beauty of my sister that made me to marry her. The attraction is that when God wants you to do something, you should do it.”

The traditional prime minister of Ekwulobia, Chief Gabriel Ezeukwu, a Mass Communication lecturer at Madonna University, Okija, said the people of that village reported the matter to him.

He said: “Before coming to me, they were considering various options, including whether to involve the police, adopt a jungle justice or to parade those involved round the town before subjecting them to other rituals. “But I advised that the first thing was to investigate the matter thoroughly. I personally went to their compound and met their parents. I did not see the young man involved and when I was told that he was teaching at Community Secondary School, Isuofia, I went there, but still did not find him. “I saw a burnt structure that looked like a church beside their house and I urged those who gathered at the scene to disappear in their own interest.’

Truck crushes man, 2 siblings to death

Published

There was pandemonium yesterday in Ago-Iwoye, Ijebu North Local Government Area of Ogun State when a truck laden with granite crushed a middle-aged man with three children. The incident happened at Oru- Ago-Iwoye junction, along the Ijebu- Ode/Ibadan Road when the victims were riding a motorcycle on their way to school at about 7:30am. Saturday Telegraph gathered that the tragic crash claimed the lives of the man and two of the kids on the spot.

The incident sparked riot in the area as aggrieved youths and residents set the truck ablaze in protest against the killing of the victims. Another unsuspecting truck, which drove into the scene, was also intercepted and set on fire by the protesters. Police as well as operatives of Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE) had hectic time to control the situation.

The FRSC Sector Commander, Clement Oladele, who confirmed the incident, said the fourth victim, a female child, was injured in the crash. Oladele, who spoke through the FRSC Public Education Officer, Ogun State Command, Florence Okpe, attributed the crash to overspeeding and dangerous driving on the part of the truck driver.

The FRSC boss gave the vehicles involved in the crash as an unmarked Shacman truck and a Chigjeng AX100 motorcycle marked OG7613BA. He explained that the injured female child was taken to a private hospital in Oru, Ijebu while the dead were taken to the mortuary of State Hospital, Ijebu-Igbo.

He said: “The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), Ago-Iwoye rescue team reported promptly and succeeded in rescuing one of the victims, a young female child, to Blessed Hospital Oru Ijebu for immediate treatment. “Upon returning to the scene, youths and students who were already on the rampage started destroying the truck involved and one other truck that drove into the scene. “The bodies of the dead were evacuated in the heat of the chaos to State Hospital Ijebu-Igbo mortuary.”

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, could not be reached for comments on whether the truck driver had been arrested or not.
