A man identified as Nnanna Emeka is at large after allegedly killing his 4-month-old pregnant wife for ritual purposes in Ugbele Mgbidi area of Imo State.
According to Naija News, the unfortunate incident occurred on Saturday, July 3, 2021, just three months after the couple tied the knot.
According to the report, “he wanted to take his wife out on a date, and then, probably take her to somewhere to accomplish his plan. He would have come back to cook up stories to cover his track. But unfortunately for him, his wife refused to go out with him.
According to the deceased’s friend, few days before the incident, the deceased had told her that for the past weeks, her husband’s character has changed, that she doesn’t understand him anymore. So she believes that was why she refused to go out with him.
“However, after trying fruitlessly to get his wife to go out with him, he allegedly decided to kill her inside their apartment and take her corpse to the place where the ritual will be performed, the deceased’s friend alleges.
He was said to have used a rod to hit her on her forehead. But while trying to transport the body, people became suspicious and confronted him. But he took to his heels and as I speak, he is nowhere to be found, she said.
They got married three months ago and the deceased was four months pregnant with his child.” She added.
