A woman identified as Mrs Augustina Ihugbe has, in a jealous rage, allegedly sent her husband, Mr Raymond Ihugbe to the great beyond by pouring a container of raw acid on him.
Sources close to the family say Mr Ihugbe, a 50yr old mason of Akwakuma, Owerri West LocalGovernment Area of Imo State and father of 4 has on numerous occasions been accused of marital infidelity by his wife who, after so many denials, decided to take matters into her hands.
Mrs Eunuce Ihugbe, mother of the deceased, gave another side to the narrative saying that her late son’s wife had always been fond of making financial demands on her husband which he could not meet up with as a result of his humble income. This issue was the cause of a lot of quarrels and disagreement which both sides of the family had tried to settle, but to no avail.
Things came to a head when Mrs Ihugbe (the wife) trailed her husband to Ubommiri, Mbaitoli Local Government Area where he was building a house for his family, poured the vat of acid on him and took to her heels. The remains of Mr Raymond has been deposited at the Federal Medical Center Owerri pending police investigations.
