In Ibusa, Delta State, Awele Nwani, 35, a housewife and mother-of-six, has scalded her husband, Frank Nwani with hot water, for allegedly denying her of sex for 3 weeks. Awele, now on the run, alleged that her husband was having sexual affairs outside and thus threatened to make life unbearable for him.
But while dispelling her allegation as untrue, Frank said: “My wife has been sleeping around, hence I stopped sleeping with her for 3 weeks, it is a taboo in my tribe and she violates the laws.” He added that his attempts to stop her illicit affairs proved abortive, then he took the decision to starve her of sex.
According to Punchng, trouble started last Thursday when Frank returned home from a friend’s house during the night and jokingly called Awele a lazy woman. This left her angry as she fired back, calling Frank a witch. It soon degenerated into a verbal crossfire.
Sources said that after the quarrel, Awele pretended as if she was no longer angry. However, she dashed to the kitchen where water was already boiled and unknown to Frank, who was relaxing in the parlour, bathed him with the water and disappeared.
Police officers at the Ibusa police Division confirmed that Awele disappeared with the N200,000 daily contributions Frank received and kept in her custody. The police said they were on her trail, while Frank is presently receiving treatment in a private hospital.
