The police in Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), have arrested a 40-year-old welder for allegedly inflicting injury on his wife. It was said that the woman had requested feeding money for the family.

The suspect, Ogwu Richard, was alleged to be keeping another woman after sending his wife away, together with their four kids.

City News learnt that the victim, simply identified as Nueke, had always gone to collect money from the suspect for the family upkeep, which he had always given her until that fateful day. She was beaten and subsequently rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

The source said that when the victim approached the suspect for the money, he refused, claiming he had no money for them.
