A 38-year-old woman, Blessing Igwe, has been arraigned before a Gudu Upper Area Court in Abuja for allegedly battering her disabled husband all the time.
The woman, who was brought to court on Wednesday was also alleged to have resisted arrest.
Igwe, who reside at CBN Estate at Apo in Abuja, is facing a three-count charge of assault, criminal intimidation and resisting lawful arrest.
The Prosecutor, Mr. Fidelix Ogbobe, said that the complainant, one Robinson Igwe of Choos Estate, Apo reported the matter at the Apo Police Station on Aug. 2.
Ogbobe alleged that the defendant was always taking advantage of her husband’s physical challenge to assault him all the time.
“The defendant always takes advantage of her husband’s disability to assault him. The complainant is a physically challenged person, who uses crutches to walk.
“He has been admitted in hospital because of a head injury as a result of assault and battery from his wife.
“Despite police intervention the accused had repeatedly beaten her husband at the slighted provocation.’’
“But when the complainant reported the matter to the police, the defendant resisted arrest on three different occasions until she was finally arrested on the fourth attempt by the police,’’ Ogbobe said.
