Article written by ICHEOKU.....Full of horrible Images!

Instances of Nigerian Men that have killed their wives in USA. And coincidentally, most of the wives are nurses!

What is going on?

Warning: some of the images here might be too graphic for your psyche; proceed with caution!
Have you ever seen the face of a wife killer?
Have you ever met anyone who took the life of the mother of his children?
Have you ever seen or met such a person who is a Nigerian?
How spooky it is indeed that such a person has the blood of another human being and a Nigerian for that matter, drooling over his hands!

Such a hallowing experience becomes much creepier, when that monster who took the life of a Nigerian is also a fellow Nigerian whom you may have interacted with somehow. somewhat!

Now buckle up your belt as Icheoku takes you on a harried excursion through the faces, names and somewhat biographies of some of these denigrate of society!

They are painting the average Joe-Nigerian man in American as a domestic violent person; a potential wife killer! A bad name indeed, really?
They are the worst of the Nigerian male society in America: the dregs of the society!
They are the fabled black-sheep who have defiled and violated the sanctity of the Nigerian family cohesiveness.
These men killed their WIVES! They made their children motherless! It is abominable! Brace yourself!
  1. Now, meet denigrate person wife-killer number one, Mr. Kelechi Charles Emeruwa:-
  2. In Tennessee, a Nigerian man after taking it for so long, lost his cool and shot his Registered Nurse wife as well as his hitherto mother in-law to death with a shot gun.
  3. Another lunatic fringed monster, Mr. Theophilus Ojukwu has equally entered the annals of Nigerian men wife-killers in the United States of America!
  4. In another family-related violent incident involving a Nigerian, it was reported that the husband, Benjamin Unachukwu from Nnewi, Anambra State, was taken to jail to face two criminal charges with the kitchen-knife weapon of choice as evidence exhibit!
  5. In Los Angeles California it was reported that a Nigerian RN wife was brutally murdered by her husband.
  6. Similarly, in Grand Prairie, Dallas, Texas, Mrs. Monireti Abeni Akeredolu, (pictured below in her wedding with her killer-husband) a 46-year old Registered Nurse from Ondo State Nigeria met her untimely death in the hands of her estranged husband, Mr. Ebenezer Akeredolu, Sr., 48.
  7. Not too long ago, also, on August 10, 2005 in Euless, a suburb of Dallas, another frustrated Nigerian husband, 45-year old Johnny Omorogieva from Edo State, Nigeria murdered his RN wife, Mrs. Isatu Omorogieva, 35, also of Edo State by savagely striking her on the head numerous times with a hammer in the full view of their 7-year old screaming daughter.
  8. In Tulsa, Oklahoma a yet to be fully authenticated report has it that another Nigerian man recently bludgeoned his RN wife to death while she was fast asleep; following a traumatic life which she has subjected him to since turning into the majority bread winner of the family following her graduating from a nursing program.
  9. Another Nigerian nut-case, Mr. John Onwuka 49, from Akwete community of Ohafia Bende Local Government Area of Abia State was charged with one count each of homicide and use of a knife in the commission of a felony. He stabbed his RN wife of twenty five years, Mrs Gloria Uchechi Anya Onwuka age 42, fourteen times in her bedroom while she was getting ready to go to work. She was a nurse manager.
  10. Fifty year old Mr. Michael Collins Iheme of Hennepin Minnesota placed a call few minutes after shooting his twenty eight year old wife, Mrs. Anthonia Eberechi iheme, the mother of his 4 year old boy and 3 year old girl, to death.

Nigerian Men beating/Killing their wives!

Hmmm...Shocking indeed.
Its sad that men in Nigeria still beat their wives.

Returning home early this year, just two weeks into my being there, I saw a sight that sent jitters to my bone marrow!

We were driving past this store and saw people gathered, and as is customary with drivers, my driver slowed down and then I saw the sight! A MAN WAS POUNDING HIS WIFE THAT WAS ALREADY ON HER KNEES!!! And I am talking POUDING here because that had gone past the level of 'beating'! He was hitting her with anything his hand could pick!

And PEOPLE WERE WATCHING THEM!! Without trying to get the man away from the woman.

And I was soooooo angry and shouting at the top of my voice for them to arrest the man, and my Aunt who has lived about 18 years in London was yelling at the top of her voice as well.

My driver rushed across the road to go rescue the woman and just got there in the nick of time as he picked up this huge stone to throw on her! And people were watching!!!! Without even trying to pry him away! And that was when an old woman that was close to my car simply said that "ah, its a regular thing". And I asked her again why men and women were just watching, and she repeated that they see that 'always'! Story is that the wife (being beaten) used to be the house-girl, and got pregnant for the man and now is the second wife. They see him beating her everytime and had all gotten tired of seperating them. Moreso, when the girl stays put! Even the Police were tired of addressing their matter. And I wondered, WHY THE HEC WONT SHE JUST LEAVE THAT MAN!!??? A man that truly loves you would not hit you!! Would not hurt you!! haba!

Meanwhile, the first wife was sitting down at a corner watching!
And I asked myself, 'To marry na by force'? Wouldn't living single have been better for this pretty fair complexioned girl that has turned herself into a punching bag? Is that life?

I 'stupidly' pulled out my cell phone to call 911, and when it was making a funny sound, it dawned on me that I was IN NIGERIA! Not USA where 911 works!

Oh, next day, I saw same girl back at her shack, selling her provisions again. Back to life, 'business as usual', life continued for her......the beating/pounding? I guess its simply part of her existence. An acceptable thing to her.

And I shudder to think, what if the husband had missed her face or her back and hit her on the chest or a damaged a vital organ that would have killed her on the spot there? I guess he would be 'fined' by the villagers and continue life as usual, right?

Thank God that the law in USA and other advanced countries are different. YOU beat, YOU SERVE a term. Gbam!!

When some foolish naija men would carry their violent and wife battering habit to USA, they think its Nigeria?

And the recent spate of Nigerian men killing their wives is nauseating!Maybe when one wife kills her Nigerian husband, then, they would pipe low! (Bad Advice though)....

But enuff is freaking enuff!! If the marriage ain't working no more, waka!! Because chances are, the couple probably married for immigration papers and thus there was no love foundation to pull them through tough times.

Marriage is NOT a bed of roses, but people take fairy tales too serious!if you dedicate so much time to be the Employee of the Month or the best at your job and business, why don't you dedicate time too to making your marriage work!

E no easy, simple!
Less Violence please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

August 8th, 2008!

August 8th 2008, a landmark date.
Come and gone, but a day I'ld always remember.

Because that is a day I asked God for something and HE did them all for me, in more ways than I ever even imagined.

God be praised.
