The Bayelsa State Police Order has captured a 56-year-elderly person, Christopher Chiabata, who murdered his significant other during a battle about cash at Onuebum people group in Ogbia Neighborhood Government Region of the state.
It was assembled that that the presume struck his 41-year-old spouse with a pestle during a battle. After she kicked the bucket in the emergency clinic he attempted to end it all by taking Expert rifleman. In any case, neighbors revived and gave him over to Police.
Speaking to newsmen while being paraded at the police headquarters on Tuesday, March 9, Chiabata claims that he killed his wife in self-defence.
According to Chiabata, he has been married to his wife for 30 years with five children but they have been fighting frequently because she cheats him out of the money they jointly generated from their farming business.
“Whenever I take our produce to the market, she does not give me an account of the sales. For two years she refused to give me an account of the money we have realized from the farm. So one day, I called her to give me an account and when she refused we started fighting until neighbours separated us,” he explained.
“In anger, the next day I asked her to leave the farm business for me to handle alone. One day when I returned from the farm, she had packed my things out of the house. That day we fought again and neighbours separated and settled us.
“Fed up the whole development, I asked her to pack out of the house the following day but she refused. Then we started fighting at that point. She is stronger than me so each time we fight she would beat me mercilessly. So this time as she was beating me, out of anger, I struck her with a pestle.
“It was by then she fell. Neighbors encouraged surge her to the College of Port Harcourt Showing Clinic where she kicked the bucket. At the point when I heard she had passed on, I took Expert rifleman trying to commit suicide yet neighbors rushed to act the hero and took me to the medical clinic.”
