Man Allegedly Assaults Wife For Demanding Money For Family Upkeep


An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court has remanded a 33-year-old-man identified as Jones Okweshine for allegedly beating his wife.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, the accused, who resides at Ogba, Lagos, is facing a two-count charge of failure to provide the basic needs of his family and assault.

The Police Prosecutor, ASP Ezekiel Ayorinde, told the court that the accused assaulted his wife, Obarora, for demanding for money for their children’s feeding and welfare.

Ayorinde said, “The accused who married the complainant three years ago refused to be responsible, but instead he always threatens his wife.

“He always threatened to kill the complainant whenever she asked him for money for the upkeep of their seven months old and two-year old children.

“On that fateful day, the complainant asked him for money and the accused carried out his threat and descended on her.

“The complainant reported the case and the accused was arrested,’’ he said.

The Magistrate, Mrs B.O Osunsanmi, granted the accused bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Osunsanmi said that the sureties should be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The offences violated sections 172 and 207 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The case was adjourned to Jan. 16 for hearing.
