A mother-of-five, Beatrice Mbari, has called for justice after she was allegedly beaten to pulp by her husband following a disagreement with his mistress in Rivers State.
Mbari in a chat with Punch, said trouble started when her son confronted her husband’s alleged lover, simply identified as Helen, who later reported the confrontation to her husband.
This infuriated her husband, who, as soon as he arrived home, began to act violently and attacked her. Beatrice alleged that he beat her mercilessly, dragged her around the kitchen, and then threw her out of the house.
She further reveled that this was not the first time he was battering and assaulting because of his lover.
In her closing statement, Beatrice, whose both eyes were visibly swollen and had bruises below her eyes and ears as well as on other parts of her body, called on the International Federation of Women Lawyers to come to her aid.
