A 50-year-old father of four children identified as Raymond Ihugba, has been killed by his wife, Augustina, after a protracted misunderstanding between them in Akwakuma Autonomous Community in the Owerri North Council Area of Imo State.

According to a report by PUNCH Metro, the remains of the victim who is said to be a stonemason, had been deposited at the mortuary of the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, while the suspect was on the run.

While speaking to a correspondent, the mother of the deceased, Mrs. Eunice Ihugba, said that trouble started between Raymond and Augustina because the latter was always making high financial demand from him despite his lean resources.

Eunice who disclosed further that Raymond repeatedly pleaded with his wife to bear with him, but his pleas fell on deaf ears, said, “My efforts and those of Augustina’s relations to arrest the ugly situation proved abortive.”

Eunice explained that the matter came to a head when Augustina, who was reportedly armed with acid, attacked her husband on his site in Ubomiri.
“Augustina poured the acid on him, set him ablaze and ran into hiding. Raymond was rushed to the Emergency Ward of the FMC, Owerri, from where he was transferred to the ward 10 of the hospital where he eventually gave up the ghost,” she said.

The teary mother added that the suspect usually stole her husband’s money because of her ostentatious life style.

Meanwhile, the traditional ruler of the community, Eze Charles Osuji, who confirmed the incident, described it as an abomination to the community, and assured that efforts would be made to apprehend the fleeing suspect and bring her to book.

He advised residents of the tension-soaked community to remain calm and allow the police to handle the matter.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
