MATHIAS Nweze, a
native of Umuida, Enugu-
Ezike in Igboeze North local
government area of Enugu
State, has reportedly shot his
wife dead.
The police said yesterday,
that they had commenced
investigation into the bizarre
incident which occurred at
about 11pm last Saturday.
Vanguard gathered that
Nweze, popularly known as
“Honourable”, claimed that
while he was sleeping in his
house that fateful night, his
generator went off twice
without knowing the cause.
Having woken up suddenly,
he suspected that some
thieves may have invaded his
compound and as a result,
brought out his pump action
gun and pointed it towards
the direction of the
generator.
Without wasting time, he
allegedly fired several shots
apparently to scare the
alleged invaders but
unknown to him, his wife
was around the place.
Nweze only realized that he
had shot his wife when she
screamed saying that the
bullet had hit her. The
woman fell down, bled
profusely before
sympathizers rushed to the
scene.
She was later rushed to New
Testament Hospital Ogrute,
Igboeze North council
headquarter where doctors
confirmed her dead.
The state Police Public
Relations Officer, Mr. Ebere
Amaraizu, who confirmed
the incident, said the corpse
of the deceased had been
deposited at the mortuary
for autopsy. “We have
commenced investigation
into the incident that led to
the shooting of a housewife
by the husband,” he said.
