Woman allegedly battered by her husband over disagreement with his girlfriend in Rivers

Beatrice Mbari, a mother of five, has demanded justice after alleging that her husband beat her to death after an argument with his lover in the Bundu Ama neighborhood of Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State.

The upset woman told Punch in Port Harcourt that the man had punched her so many times that she could not see with her eyes.

According to Mrs. Mbari, issues began when her son encountered Helen, her husband’s purported mistress, who then informed her husband about the encounter.

Beatrice claimed her husband allegedly dragged her around the kitchen after he got home, beat her ruthlessly, and then tossed her out of the house.

She continued by saying that it wasn’t the first time he had been hitting and assaulting because of his love


“My husband beat me and damaged my face. He punched me in the eye. I can’t even see clearly. He dragged me in the kitchen and said he will kill me and nothing will happen,” she explained.

“I was pleading with him to leave me. I asked him what I did. It was one of my neighbour that came to rescue me. He even drove her away. He stripped me and threw me outside. Since then, I and my children have been managing with my elder sister. That was why I arrested him yesterday.”

She said the matter was reported to the Central Police Station at the old Port Harcourt township, saying he has been arrested.

“I asked his girlfriend, Helen, why she told my husband what my son said about his father. I don’t know what the girlfriend told him. Because when he returned from her house, he started beating me. Helen is the reason my husband wants to kill me and my children, so that she will control the family.”

Beatrice whose both eyes were visibly swollen, with bruises below her eyes and ears, as well as other parts of her body, called on the International Federation of Women Lawyers to intervene and save her life.

“I want FIDA to come and help me so that this thing will not happen again. Then let him take care of his children. I don’t want to stay with him, because he will kill me one day. I also thank the police that helped me to arrest him,” she added.
