Man Chains Wife To Pillar, Flees To Unknown Destination In Ebonyi





 A man identified as Uche Chukwuani has chained his wife, Mrs Ngozi Chukwuani to a pillar inside their residential house at no.1 Ike Street, Abakaliki, and fled to an unknown destination.

Mr. Saint Nchekwube Anakor, Special Assistant (SA) to the State Governor on Security and Utility, Capital City, who disclosed this to Journalists in Abakaliki on Monday, said the victim was on chain for 18 hours before she was rescued.

According to him, the couple are married with children.
Anakor said he brought a Welder who came and cut the chain before the woman could be freed, as the husband had fled with the key of the padlock.


He said policemen from Eke-aba division Abakaliki had visited the scene, and were already investigating the matter, even as he assured that the man must be apprehended and made to face the law.

Anakor who said ignorance was not an excuse in law, urged residents of the State to be cautious of their actions.

He called for calm, and urged the people to always alert Government as well as security agencies about anything untoward happening in their neighborhood.


He said: “This evening at no.1 Ike street Abakaliki, we bursted a scene where one Mr Uche Chukwuani chained his wife to a pillar in their building and ran away with the key of the padlock.”

“But, thanks to Ekeaba Police Division whose timely response saved the situation. I had to bring a welder who cut the chain with surblade. 

“One question that kept on coming to my mind is: what did this woman do that she would be chained like a dog by her own husband? Whatever transpired, does it warrant such dehumanization? Does it worth it?”

“Most people act in ignorance. Nobody has the right to chain or tie any human being, because it is against the law.”

“Presently, he is on the run, but I wonder how long he could run, because we must catch him. I thank the residents of that area for giving us timely information.”

“I advise people to be wary of their actions; ignorance is not an excuse in law.”

“I am always on patrol till day break, expecting to hear from you. The neighborhood watch are stationed in every part of the town protecting ur areas. Reach out us for any challenges,” Anakor said.
