A housewife, identified as
Mrs. Ogenyi, has been beaten to stupor by her
angry husband for allegedly investing the family’s saving
in Mavrodi Mondial Movement/Moneybox, otherwise known as MMM, Daily Post reports…
Sources gathered that problem ensued between the couple, who resides on
Balogun Street, Iyana Ipaja area of Lagos Sunday afternoon, after the
husband returned from a trip to his hometown in Benue and discovered
that the family saving box was missing.
On inquiry from his son, Oche, the father was informed that the mother went out with her friend around 4pm and had not returned.
The husband who works as a driver with one of the commercial transport
companies later found the saving box broken and empty in the wardrobe.
A co-tenant informed Daily Post that on her return, the woman was
shocked to see the husband as he was not expected home until month end
due to the nature of his job.
According to the eyewitness, the husband inquired to know who broke the
saving box but the wife could not give him any satisfactory answer.
“When the husband threatened to beat the wife if she fails to tell him
who broke the box, she accepted breaking the box and investing the money
into MMM. She thought she could get 30 per cent of her income and
replace the money before the husband could return,” the source said.
The source said the husband had saved the money, over N86, 000, for their new accommodation.
Angered by her action, the husband descended on the wife in commando style, beating her blue black.
All her efforts to explain to the husband that the money would yield
income in the next 30 days fell on deaf ears as the husband insisted she
must cough out the money before morning.
The man, who locked the door of their one room apartment to prevent
sympatisers from rescuing the helpless woman eventually hit the woman
with breakable plate and she collapsed.
The source said on realizing his wife was unconscious, he quickly ran
out of the room, living the woman and their three-year-old son and fled
to unknown destination.
The neighbours took her to the hospital where she is currently battling for her life.
