Man Beats His Wife To Death Over N200 Gift

An Ebute Meta Magistrate Court sent one Henry Anaele to prison for allegedly beating his wife to death over a N200 gift.

The Chief Magistrate , Mr . O . O . Olatunji, said the accused should be remanded at the Ikoyi Prisons for the next 30 days pending advice from the State Director of Public prosecutions .

Anaele , age 40, whose plea was not taken , had appeared on a charge for murder.

Earlier , Inspector Cousin Adams told the court that the accused committed the offence on June 15 , at about 11. 45 p. m , at No . 72, Goodness Estate , Satellite Town , Lagos .

Adams said that the accused had found out that someone gave his wife , Chinyere , 35, the sum of N 200 , which did not go down well with him .

“ This angered the accused who beat his wife to death for collecting the money , ’’ he said .

The offence contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which prescribes a death sentence for offenders .
The magistrate adjourned the case until August 6 .
