A man's regrettable action has prompted the indigenes of his village into action after he mistakenly killed his baby while beating his wife for not washing his cloths. At the Umuchima Village in Owerri West Local Government Area on Thursday Morning, a Barber named Chinedu, accidentally killed his baby after a fight erupted between him and his wife.
It was gathered that the unfortunate incident happened after a minor issue which escalated to the man bartering his wife, and as the drama was going on, the woman carried the 3-months old baby, thinking that at least this will subside his husband’s anger.
While the lady was evading another punch from the husband, the worst happened as the punch hit the baby's head. This prompted the indigenes, to alert the Vigilante Group, who quickly swing into action and arrested the man.
According to Starttells, the man who was shedding tears after the result of his actions dawned on him, complained during interrogation that his wife never bothers to wash his clothes, never says the truth, and that she cannot be trusted.
