A Nigerian man identified as Salami Olajide a.k.a Stubborn has been arraigned for beating his wife and mother of his three children, named as Salami Ruth to coma and forcing her to drink sniper for trying to quit their marriage of 6 years.
It was reported that the incident occurred at the duo’s apartment at Ijede Road in Ikorodu on Saturday March 7. Ruth, 33, who is nursing a six-month-old baby, was taken to Ajayi Hospital within the community where she is receiving treatment.
Narrating the incident, the couple’s landlord, identified as Alhaji Lawal Tanimola who confirmed the incident said he suspended his prayer and called other tenants with whom they forced the door open after hearing Ruth’s continuous call for help. He disclosed that the couple have never gone a week in their nearly-two-years’ stay in his house without fighting.
However, Tanimola also further revealed that Salami was released by the police, barely 24 hours after he was arrested.
Tanimola further said;
‘’We tried to intervene, but the husband stopped us, warning us to back off as we are not party to their marriage. Just like ever before, he was arrested and we all heaved a sigh of relief. But we were stunned to see the man released the next day on the order from above as it was a pure family affair.’’
