Akwa Ibom lawyer caught on camera beating wife over key, neighbours intervene (Video)

A video has surfaced online showing a lawyer identified as Mr Ebong brutally attacking his wife during an argument over a key.

The man, who seemed to be in a fit of rage, repeatedly demanded the key from his wife and assaulted her until she bled from her mouth.

A video shared online shows the lawyer standing over his wife as she lay on the floor. Blood covered the front of her shirt and some of her blood pooled on the floor.

Neighbours intervened to stop him from further harming her, as they revealed that he had been abusing his wife for over four years.

A voice is heard saying: “Since when I was living up here, every night he’ll be beating this woman. You no get shame? What kind of lawyer are you?

“No be today. I’ve lived in this compound for four years. When I was living there, every night, he’ll be beating this woman.”

They confronted him for his actions but he got angry at them for interfering and dared one of the men to house his wife.

The husband told the neighbour: “If she’s a woman, let her sleep in your house. If she sleeps in your house. If she sleeps there.”

“You want to take her to your house. Take her to your house,” the husband said threateningly.

The neighbour responded angrily, saying: “You have been doing this thing for over 4 years now. Today will be your last. I’m telling you.”

The neighbour then threatened to hit the husband with a stick (pako).

The neighbour said: “Pako, sir, pako, your life. If you try anything, your life. What’s wrong with you?”
