The ugliness of domestic violence has been highlighted once again after a Muslim man from Nigeria subjected his pregnant wife to sound beatings for failing to prepare his meal on time to break his fast.
The unfortunate incident has been confirmed by the Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer who revealed that the incident occurred at Ogbere Housing Estate, Ibadan on Tuesday morning.
The man who committed the offense has been identified as Taofeek Gbolagade and in the meantime, he’s in police custody pending further investigation.
A source revealed to the media how the incident occurred;
“This man always beats his wife over any little misunderstanding they have. I was able to record today’s event. He is a Muslim so I think they had an argument over Sahur.
“This man didn’t mind that she was pregnant with his second child and started pouncing on her. She wailed for hours before she was able to flee to her parents’ house. Gbolagade has flown his house after being declared wanted by the security personnel.”
