A 68-year-old man, Raphael Chidi, has appeared before an Ogba magistrates’ court, Lagos, over attempt to kill his wife, Obiageli with a cutlass in the middle of the night for refusing to yield to his sexual demands.
The prosecutor, DSP Kehinde Ajayi, told the court that “Raphael and his wife, Obiageli, had been having constant quarrels over many issues, including sexual demands.
“The man was heard complaining that Obiageli did not allow him to touch her at night, while she insisted that he would not touch her unless he started treating her as his wife and took care of her needs.”
The police said investigation after the accused was arrested revealed that the union was almost at the Verge of breaking down before the unfortunate event took place.
The Magistrate, Mrs E. Kubeinje, granted the accused bail with sureties and adjourned.
