A man, identified as Kalu Ilum, has been beaten to death and set ablaze for gunning down his wife, Mercy Chichi, out of annoyance, this morning in Nkporo, #AbiaState.
According to the sister of the deceased, the wife, who was a mother-of-6, was already tired of the marriage due to the abusive nature of the husband.
Mercy is said to have built the house they stay and bought a car for Kalu. According to report, the husband shot her while she was preparing their children for school around 7a.m. .
To escape the wrath of the residents of their area, he then jumped into a well. However, he was cajoled out of the well and mobbed immediately. He was later set ablaze and his house destroyed. [Swipe to see more images from the scene]
