It was an emotional scene last week Thursday as a barber, identified as Chinedu, accidentally killed his baby during a fight with his wife at Umuchima, Owerri, Imo State.
What seemed like a minor issue between Chinedu and his wife, escalated to a fight as Chinedu descended on his wife. The wife, seeing that her husband’s rage, carried their three month old baby, thinking that the husband will stop battering her once he sees the child in her hands.
Unfortunately, while she was trying to avoid another blow from Chinedu, the punch land on the baby’s head, killing the infant instantly.
A local vigilante group was alerted and they quickly apprehended the man.
As the man was being questioned, he cried uncontrollably after his actions dawned on him. When asked what made him so angry – he complained that his wife never bothers to wash his clothes, never says the truth, and that she cannot be trusted.
