Heartless Men From Hell, …Curses Rain On Jehovah Witness Faithful For Beating Wife To Death In PH,… Police Declare Killer Husband Wanted,… In A'Ibom, Step Father Awaits Arraignment Over Daughter's Defilement

The police in Rivers State are now on the trail of Dr Jonathan Onwubuta, the Jehovah Witness' faithful who beat the wife, Dorathy Ole Ogoloma to death, two weeks after the woman gave birth to  their third child.

While Onwubuta, believed to be an indigene of Etche Local Government of Rivers State and in the employ of the Rivers State government has since fled, the state police command has declared him wanted over the crime.

Reasons for Onwugbuta's actions were not immediately clear, but sources said he beat her up following a slight disagreement. But the beating was so severe that before neighbours rushed her to the hospital, she had already lost consciousness. She was confirmed dead in the hospital.

When the man realised that her wife had died, he fled their home, leaving their three children behind. But the police have vowed to get him and bring him to justice.

Dorathy's relative, Nkesi Wogu said in a post on social media that the woman was too weak to survive after the beatings she received from the run-away husband. She actually died in the presence of the mother.

"My niece with a two-weeks old baby was beaten to death by her husband. The man is on the run; he's from Etche and also a (Johavah's) witness. Good bye my soft spoken sister.  Rest in peace.

"My own sister, my very best friend, my gist mate. So our discussion yesterday was a good bye. Hey! My heart is very heavy o. How I wish tears can just bring you back for us especially for your two weeks old baby.”

Police image maker, Nnamdi Omoni told TNN over the telephone that the matter had been reported to the police and that investigations had since begun. According to him, the police had declared him wanted.

He expressed the hope that the man would be arrested in no distant time. Omoni wondered why the doctor would beat the wife to the point of death.

In Akwa Ibom State, Joseph Sunday Essien, 45, is now in police custody, awaiting his day in court, for defiling his teenage step daughter at their Ifa Ikot Obong village, near Uyo.

Parading the suspect at the state police command headquarters, Ikot Akpan Abia, the police commissioner, Musa Kimo said the man carried out the act in the girl's apartment.

The victim said her step father had earlier lured and slept with her on four occasions before the latest incident that got him exposed, when the wife caught him in action.

The wife who has given him two children had to then report the matter to the police who eventually arrested him. Corroborating her daughter statement, the mother said her husband, on the fateful day, left her in their bedroom and sneaked into the girl's room to carry out the act.
