Man Locks Up Wife For Four Years, Impregnates Her Thrice
The Delta State Police Command has arrested a man for caging his wife in a room for four years and subjecting her to dehumanising conditions. The suspects allegedly impregnated her three times while she was in bondage at their home in Orerokpe, Delta State. The husband, who has eight children with the victim, was said to have fed her with only bread throughout her time in bondage and she was not allowed to shower or use the restroom. However, some concerned citizens reported the matter to Behind Bars Defenders Foundation, which took up the matter. The suspect, who holds an OND, accused his wife of being behind his financial woes. But it remained curious how the victim was able to give birth to three babies while in bondage.
The state Police Public Relations Officer said the suspect informed the police that the wife was mentally deranged and he had to keep her in such a condition because nobody was willing to help her. The DPO said when the report came, he took her to the hospital and the man is with the police.
