A Nigerian man has been arrested for allegedly beating his wife to death over her refusal to have sex with him.
The niece of the dead woman is calling for justice for her mother’s twin sister saying the suspect was in the habit of beating his wife.
However, on June 27, the woman, Mrs Ugieki Asemota returned home from a wedding to find her husband drunk then she had a bath, locked herself in a room to avoid getting beaten, her husband’s habit when he’s drunk but the husband banged on her door, demanding sex but she told him to go to his room and leave her alone.
When he eventually enters the room, the wife is said to have jumped out of her room through a window and the husband attacked her, hitting her with wood and a block until she bled and fainted.
She was rushed to the hospital but died last week.
