Out of Control: Nigerian Men Killing Their Wives [PART 1]

out of control

October 18th, 2012

Gary Frist

NewsRescue- Headlines in Nigerian papers today is the story of a 46-year-old unemployed man, who on October 7, at Agbado in Ogun state of Nigeria was arrested for allegedly killing his wife by throwing her into a pit latrine over a domestic misunderstanding. That’s a raw dudu pit!

This is just the latest case in the chronic saga of Nigerians killing their wives at home and abroad.

The many spontaneous killings, unlike honor killings which are most rampant in Nations around the world, from Asia to South America, can more accurately be considered as crimes of passion, but some disturbingly are executed with scary premeditation and careful planning.

NewsRescue investigated the trends and distribution of these murders and found some thought and discussion provoking trends.

Pit Latrine: Traditional non water-flushed toilet

Nigeria with a population of 150 million, is Africa’s most populous nation. The country has over 500 ethnic groups, but of these, the three largest and loudest, are the Hausa’s up North, The Yoruba’s in the South west and the Igbo’s in the south east.

Cases of wife murder like the one above are almost exclusively relegated to the southern ethnic groups, with the Igbo’s being culprit in 9 in 10 cases.

What makes this sad habit so common among the Igbo’s has been a topic of hot debate for many years in Nigerian internet fora. Some have attributed the problem to an Igbo culture that places a humongous bride price on women, and after the men cough out fortunes to marry, they tend to regard their spouses as ‘property’, they have bought, hence having a very low tolerance during domestic conflict.

A commentator reacting passionately, said, ‘only people who do not know God will do such’, they have abandoned God, this is why!’

We are unable to test and correlate religion type or the lack of it with crime in general and domestic violence and spousal murder in particular.

In an internet article in 2008, “Nigerian Men Are Killing Their Wives in America now, ” on a popular Nigerian blog, the Linda Ikeji blog, several Nigerians, almost exclusively Igbo were listed, with pictures, for murdering their wives in America.

The names included Kelechi Charles Emeruwa, Theophilus Ojukwu, Johnny Omorogieva, John Onwuka and Michael Collins Iheme. Nigerians reportedly have peculiar names that allow easy, near accurate identification by ethnicity. The men ranged from 40-50 years and the typical story was a man who brought his wife to the United States, she trained as a nurse, made good money, and later either separated or feeling belittled, the man suddenly went to her abode and killed her crudely.

After coming across a shocking article on a Nigerian forum, NigerianVillageSquare, we ran an internet search to see the 2012 rates of wife killings and check for any trends in occurrence.

Without question, the United States has some of the highest results for ‘man kills wife’, several cases every month.

When we narrowed our search to ‘Nigeria man kills wife’, we found several incidences of Nigerian episodes and these still presented with the popular ethnic trend of being almost exclusively relegated to the Igbo south eastern ethnic group.

The realities for the women are sad and frightening to imagine. Domestic violence data indicates that murders are a tiny fraction and minute glimpse at the actual scale of domestic violence within societies. To each domestic murder case reported, there are 100s more non lethal spouse battering episodes.

We at NewsRescue hope that our publication will prompt active discussion into the possible social or cultural etiology of this abusive pathology and energize women protective agencies to study any cultural causes of the levels of violence seen, with aim at possibly addressing them and protecting the thousands of victims.

Here is a collection of recent cases of Nigerians killing their wives this 2012. Two cases are reportedly Yoruba, the rest are the Igbo group of Nigeria:

Mathias Eze, Ex-commissioner Kills Wife Over Stew

But on Saturday, July 21, 2012, Mathias, a former Commissioner in the Enugu State Independent Electoral (ENSIEC), tragically ended the union that had produced six lovely children with an alleged gunshot over his wife’s failure to prepare stewed rice for the day’s supper.

The father of the deceased, Elder Alphonsus Ossai, now a shadow of himself, told Sunday Sun the tale of his daughter’s forced death as was narrated to him by the late Patricia’s 15-year-old daughter, Uju, who witnessed the incident that night. Read more…

Our correspondent learnt that on Easter Sunday around 2am, Mercy turned down her husband’s request for sex resulting in an argument between the couple.

A reliable police source told PUNCH Metro, “Henry and his wife live together in a room with their only child at 3, Lambe Street, Ago Palace Way, Lagos.

“The suspect had been suspicious of his wife’s movement and on that very day, he came back home late in the evening and was ironing his customers’ clothes on the floor while his wife and son were on the bed.

“His wife and son were both naked because the room was poorly ventilated. Henry then told his wife he wanted to have sex with her but she refused.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the suspect immediately grabbed his son and fled. However, the corpse of his son was later found in the compound. Read More…

 

Nigeria: Jealous Husband Sets Wife On Fire for Accepting Wine From Another Man At Party

By Bartholomew Madukwe, 26 September 2012Love is said to be the fire of life that neither consumes nor purifies; but for 35-year-old Janeth Odehgbe, hers was a different case as she has been set on fire by her husband following disagreement over her collecting a cup of wine from another man during a party they both attended.

Recounting her ordeal in the hand of her 39-year-old husband, Mr Kehinde Adesanmoye, Janeth told Crime Alert that on September 11, 2012 around 10 pm, her husband poured petrol on her as she was preparing Indomie noodles for a customer and fire caught her immediately. She was nearly consumed by the fire but for passers-by that rescued her.

She said, “I saw him coming towards me, as he got nearer, he ordered my customer to leave and as I tried to run for my dear life, he poured petrol on me and fire caught up with me immediately. Passers-by rescued me and ran after him to fight him, but immediately they noticed it was him, they all went to their various homes. Then some of them took me to the Police station and from there I was taken to Peaceful Convalescent Center, Alhaji Obe Street, Ejigbo Lagos.”

Janeth, who hails from Isoko area of Delta state and earns her living from selling cooked Indomie along Ikotun roundabout, claimed she was illegally married to Adesanmoye (popularly called Ogunlade) after divorcing her first husband.

Trouble was said to have started for the duo on September 8, 2012 when Adesanmoye and his wife went for a naming ceremony of a friend who stays beside their residence at 22, Olaoluwa Street, Abaranje, Ikotun. “As we got to the party, my friends who were also present were hailing me, calling me ‘Indomie’, because I was known for selling Indomie. I was invited to sit on the chairs they have organized for friends. Adesanmoye was sitting right beside me. Read More…

Man Kills Wife in the Presence of His 11 Year-old Son… Says he had “Mental Problems”

Posted on Friday, September 7th, 2012 at 1:42 PM

By Adeola Adeyemo

The last time the Nigerian media was agog with news of a man who had allegedly butchered his wife, it was greeted with a loud public outcry.

When pictures of her lifeless and dismembered body hit the internet, it generated a slew of human right actions, walks and advocacy against domestic abuse.

It was a gruesome sight. Deep knife cuts, blood all over, her gorging eyes… it was all too much too bear. In fact, it won’t be out of place to say that Nigerians have not yet recovered from the shock of Titi Arowolo’s death.

And now, a year later, another case of a wife killer has been uncovered in Enugu state. Graphic pictures of her lifeless body showing deep cuts with blood oozing out have circulated over the internet stirring another outcry.

The Enugu State Police Command, on Thursday September 6th, 2012 paraded Sunday Eze for allegedly butchering his wife with a machete in Nsukka, Enugu State. Read More…

Man kills wife over food: Peter Odion tried to stop his wife from eating the food he prepared after she refused to cook

Article | February 24, 2012 – 6:08pm | By Jewel Stephen

A middle aged man, Peter Odion, has become a guest of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly killing his wife, Ifeoma Ohalele Odion, for eating his food.

The incident occurred at their residence at 2, Olushola Close, Abule Taylor, Abule Egba, Lagos State.

Chiweiko Ohalele, a sister of the deceased who was living with the couple but was not at home when the tragedy occurred, said: “I was in my village meeting on Sunday afternoon when one of our neighbours called me on phone to meet them at a hospital at Abule Egba over my sister’s condition. When I got there, I met my sister in an unconscious state with blood dripping from her head and face. In fact, she could not neither talk nor recognise me.

I begged the doctor on duty to transfer her to the General Hospital at Ilepo because her condition was very bad. And he obliged; but before she could be attended to at the General Hospital, my sister died. When I confronted her husband who was also in the hospital on what transpired between him and my sister, he said he fought my sister for trying to eat the eba (garri) he made for himself.”

According to her, the suspect claimed that when they returned from church, he told his wife to prepare eba for him and her daughter, but she refused, claiming she had headache. Peter allegedly went ahead and prepared the eba; only for the wife to get up to eat the food.

A fight then broke out between the couple when Peter insisted his wife must not eat the food.

In the course of the fight, Peter pushed her and she hit her head on a hard object inside the room and fainted. He raised an alarm and neighbours assisted him to rush the unconscious woman to the hospital.

“I did not intend to kill her because we have not had any disagreement before the tragic incident happened,” he said. “I pray that God would forgive me.” Read More…

Topic: Man sets Pregnant wife, children ablaze.

From PETRUS OBI, Enugu Sunday, October 02, 2011

A middle-aged man, Mr Ndubuisi Egeonu, yesterday in Enugu attempted to kill his pregnant wife and his two male children when he locked them up in his barbing shop and set the place on fire.

The incident which happened at about 11: am at No. 61 Mount Street, Idaw River in the Awkunanaw area of Enugu was said to have come as a surprise to both the pregnant woman and neighbours.

Egeonu popularly known as Sagay, and who is now on the run, reportedly arrived his shop that morning and requested the wife to escort him to a filling station to buy fuel.

When they returned he reportedly tried to drag one of his female neighbours from a nearby shop, claiming she was indebted to him. The effort proved futile as neighbours intervened.

An eyewitness who described Egeonu as an erratic character that regularly beat his wife narrated how they were attracted to the container which served as his shop.

“It was when the fire started that we rushed to the shop and heard voices inside that we realized what happened. He actually tied his wife’s hands, poured petrol into the shop, locked the shop and put the place on fire.

“We rushed and broke the door but by then the pregnant woman and her children had been severely burnt.” Read More…

SHOCKER ! PASTOR KILLS WIFE OVER BED GYMNASTICS

Story by AKINNAGBE AKINTOMIDE/NIGERIAFILMS.COM

Last Updated: Saturday, March 24, 2012

A senior Pastor of United Evangelical Church,Rev. Sunday Alfa has murdered his wife,a mother of 4 for refusing him sex.

The wife,Mrs. Rose Alfa was murdered in the Mission House at about 3am in Igojo,Ubali Village near Okene in Kogi State.

We learnt that before the woman gave up the ghost,she had confessed to a Policeman,who was taking her to the hospital that she did no wrong to her pastor husband and that the man came in the night in the room she was sleeping to demand for sex,but she refused because she gave birth to her last baby in October last year through cesarean section and the doctor asked her to abstain from sex for some time.

We gathered that the woman had divorced the pastor and went to Benin City to live with her brother,Mr. Alex Abah.

Four years later,the pastor went to meet the wife relations to beg for forgiveness and pleaded with them to allow his wife come back to him because he had been promoted to Senior Pastor and it was compulsory for him to bring back his wife before they could effect the promotion.

The wife’s relations agreed and allowed her to go back to the husband.

It was during his stay with the wife that the pastor eventually murdered her over sex. Read More…

    Domestic violence unfortunately is one of those heinous crimes being committed by Nigerian men against their wives and everyone just carry on as if it’s nothing. I am writing this based on my experience. I am glad I escaped after several years of domestic abuse. When police were called to my former home in 1998 I was told by the law enforcements (who were supposed to protect me and my children) to leave the house ’till my ex husband cools down’. This was around 3.00AM in the night. Thanks to my former neighbour who offered me and my younger sister a room to sleep till morning. Not all those women involve have the chance or ability to flee from such abuse as I did. Our government need to seriously look into this and tackle it ASAP. People can turn their backs but one day it might be their sisters, daughters, nieces or mother that will be caught up in this evil act and when it does they will know how inhuman and painful it is to be treated by someone you love/respect/adore in a horrible way.

      Stop being brainwashed by these kind of “image killers” who regarded themselves as journalists.
      The author of this article is been bribed to do this harm to the one ethnic group.
      How can you believe that 9 of 10 murders of this kind in Nigeria as a whole has been perpetrated by one ethnic group of 500 as he claims?

      I think the author of this article, Gary Frist must be the worst hater of the Igbo.

This is not about sentiment at all, at least, two Yoruba murder cases were talked about.,Ibos are industrious, hardworking and very enterprising but the truth needs to be told, and we can only progress as a nation when we take corrections, there are too many barbaric altitude with the Ibos, please take corrections. And for every other Nigerians, LETS STOP THE KILLINGS, whether for politics, religion or ritual. God bless Nigeria; God help Nigerians

    • chudi

      serious???? women are meant for pleasure and reproduction? wow!!! dis guy is insane! Clear case of port calling kettle black!

    • Titilola

      Your mother is for pleasure and procreation! Islamic Hausa nonsense! Olodo You yourself are meant to be a slave!

    • Ernest Opara

      At least Igbo men are not bombing school children out of existence. They are not marrying 13 and 14 year old girls and giving them V.V.F. They are not over populating the nation by each of them marrying four wives and handing begging plates to the children to go about hawking… come on, I can go on and on. But that is not the point. That a crazy man selected the bad press of a particular section of his country in order to make them look horrible in the eyes of the world is sickening in itself. What is motivation? Another civil war? Tell me one ethnic group in Nigeria that does not have bad press? The black man, I think is inherently helpless.

  • Onye Igbo

    Gary Frist, the author of this insane article: I think you should correctly examined your findings first before portraying the Igbos as worst than your angelic and heavenly nation where you came from.
    I guess you be regarded as the worst author that have ever lived.
    Stop tarnishing the image of people that have never harmed you before in the name of journalism unless the God of the people will rise up against you and you may never be able have the chance to post this kind of insane article to the world ever more.

    Or was your mother killed by an Igbo husband?

    This is nonesense!!!

    • elam

      don’t criticize in anger and you will be doing well to pass your message

  • Whyte

    It is unfortunate that all the people painted in this sorry article came from the Ibo area, We know that domestic violence is a general problem, spread across the globe, committed by people of all countries of the world, (not only in Nigeria) Hausas, Yorubas, efik, ibibio, ijaw, urhobo, etc, whites, Blacks, Reds etc. reel in the effect of Domestic violence, Even women kill their Husbands too. It is an act of wickedness and man’s inhumanity to man, committed by people who know not God, and those who are being used by Satan the Devil. I Hereby advice the Author of this incisive article, to stop using this medium to slander the image of the Ibos, if you (The author) have any grouse with an Ibo man, it is not enough reason to run this campaign of calumny against God’s own people.

    It is very pathetic to read through this relating to the Igbo tribe.
    The truth is that this could happen to any tribe but I can not say why it is more of Igbos as explained, but I will want to correct the issue of the cost of Marriage to be responsible, that is very wrong because must cases reported here shows that some of the victims are not legally married more so the case of similar cases in America is it also related to the cost of marriage? please think twice when ever issue like this is posted in the net. I pray that the culprit will be brought to book let justice prevail, because no human being has the right to take the live of another, every one have the right to live.

  • aniebiet samson

    oh what a senseless horror

  • chinedu

    This story is one sided,though I dont support killing in any way but I have the conviction that women (wifes) in Nigeria have killed more men only that it is not in voilent way. through poison either mental or chemical poison.

    Before making my view regarding this write-up, let me first make it clear that I do not in any way support domestic violence of any form – either towards women or children. It is barbaric. Second, domestic violence is a universal issue and can not be seen as affecting a particular set of people as represented by the author. For example, the rate of domestic violence is high in th USA.

    Speaking from the research point of view, I will describe the author’s report as biaise, subjective and lacking in objective analysis of the issue. There is a fundamental error with this kind of study. First, the sample frame is very inadequate. Second, it appears that the writer had already concluded his findings before embarking on the study, thus revealing his biaise mind and prejudice against a particular group of people. His prejudice also blind-folded his eye to see that Igbo marriages are the most stable compared to marraiges in other tribes in Nigeria.

    In addition, the author’s explanation that high cost of bride price is the cause of domestic violence also reveals his/her ignorance of how the marriage institution in Igbo land works and the role of bride price. Please dear author, this is a point of correction, “Igbos do not sell their daughters, neither do the men buy them as household property.” Instead of openly voicing his prejudice against a group in a study that lacks scientific approach, he should have done better by employing scientific methodology to find out the latent factors responsible for these voilence.

    I understand that it is pathological for a man to react to his wife’s offence by killing her. I do not support that. I believe no reasonable man will do that. But let also consider the extreme offences of some wives that is capable of pushing their husbands to the wall. Just think of it, you wake up one morning to find out that the child or children you have been calling your own are not truly yours. Which means the woman have been cheating on the husband all these years. Well, it is left to you to say how you will handle it if you are in such situation. But all I know is that different men will handle it differently.

    Finally, I implore all men, in the name of God, do not take to killing your wife for any offence she committed. By killing her you will destroy your life and everything you have worked for in life. And above all you will be sinning against God. Please, instead of killing, look for other soft-landing alternatives. Above all, learn to forgive your wives, no matter what she does. God will hold you accountable if you fail, because He has given her to you to manage. please Love your wife, don’t kill her. I rest my case.

      Hmmm. You sound more biased than this guy. Which scientific approach do you want him to engage? he just gathered the above stories. what you should do is gather the stories of other tribes he has held back and publish!

      • objective observer

        To reach the sweeping conclusions he has made in his article, the author needed to demonstrate that his research is rigorous and robust. He draws a conclusion about millions of Igbo men on the basis of a few, selected, self-serving anecdotes.
        To show he is not biased, he should have made more effort to collect a more representative sample. For instance, court records of murdered wives will be more scientific than unverified stories from the tabloid.
        And ethical considerations require that scientists take due care to not allow personal bias to compromise the objectivity of their study. But then again, he is clearly not a scientist.
        Abdullahi, just because Boko Haram exists in the North, is it valid for one to conclude that all Northerners are members of Boko Haram?

        • Sanni John

          You can say what you like, but few will be on your side. Instead of being defensive, do something to educate your men about why domestic violence is wrong. Unless you don’t feel that it’s wrong.

    • Blasphemy

      The comment need not any further comment. Every one can see the mind of the writer. He was not even ready to addrees any issue. My question is since all these people see the Igbos as the black sheep in all works of life. Why the hell they cannot allow the Igbos be alone as a country even I suggest they be removed from ECOWAS as a country and if all the Igbos has my mind. we shall see who laughs last even after 5 years of being left alone. all over the world they come to the Igbos when they have problems with their lives but are ready to bite the feeding hand emmediately tey feel ok and back in the midst of their people. How many other Black nations has fed from the hand of the Igbos. I doot blame them because all is the fault of the Igbos who leave their farm to work for others without any thanks. I am really tired of all these complaint about the Igbos. God knows why I did not have gone for nulear physics…….. Just let the Igbos alone or one day the devil will devour all of you.

      • Kofi

        The problem on ground is that u people are too hard to correct. Why don’t u learn from other and and leave ur barbaric life for once. U could still be a better people if u at least share from other people culture.

        • Sanni John

          Kofi, well said! I cannot grasp why they don’t want to accept their wrongdoings? Instead they get riled up and make ridiculous excuses. Then they have the nerve to call on God. I’ve heard first-hand stories from the Igbo women of the terror their men inflict upon them.

        • Titilola

          God bless you Koffi. Pls tell Ghanaians not to buy medicine from the Ibos. They are a very dangerous people. Nigerians are really tired of them. I wish Naija ppl will just let them go to their land locked biaf- nonsense that has no access to the sea. We will expel all Ibos from Nigeria. They are the armed robbers you see. The go to Gabon to rob them with guns! can you imagine that shame? If you produce a film today, they pirate it and wreck you. Pls be careful with them. Money is their God and they can do anything to get it. God bless you.

          • joedice

            i am sorry to say….. look at ur own life and see if u are not wost than the igbo men u are talking about….. wot a comment.titilola. if igbos are the bad ppl in Nigeria wot happens to the ppl that kill ppl in the name of religion. i am talking if the hausa. the bokoharam.

          • Titilola

            This is not ethnicity, stop looking for an excuse. Boko haram are hooligans. they are not in Hausa homes. Hausa ppl are good people. We are talking about humanity here. if Yoruba men do this rubbish I will be the first person to curse them. stop being igbocentric. it shows the level of you education is very low. Igbos are not bad people at least i have Ibo friends but you guys should stop maltreating women. don’t you learn from the respect Ghanaians and Yorubas and Hausa give to women??? a woman cannot inherit land=rubbish. if a man does not have a son, he cannot inherit a landed property=rubbish. WHY do you value ephemeral things more than a woman, a fellow human being. You guys are yet to be truly civilized.

          • zagrab

            please think before you say things,i am shocked to find someone thinking so backward like you.listen to yourself speak about the Igbos,in Nigeria today who can be more industrious like the people you spit so much hatred against,from your name definitely you’re Yoruba.you guys specialize in yahoo yahoo(cyber crime),gbomo gbomo(human sacrifice).If you like me to tell you all the crimes committed by your brothers and sisters i will tell you with facts….stop pointing a finger ,you really don’t know how many pointing back at you

          • Titilola

            You do more than gbomogbomo in Okija shrine. Your industry is your headache. stop importing fake drugs, stop killing patients. stop pirating hard work of creative people. and stop robbing pple. stop killing women. re-awaken your your conscience, otherwise, till eternity no Nigeria will vite for an Ibo president. And learn humility like the Hausa and Yoruba. Your arrogance smells. If you are tired of living in Yoribaland, pack you luggage, leave Lagos and go back to your village. Stiffnecked arrogannt people spoiling Nigerians everywhere. Shior! I am proudly Yoruba, if you must know, my name tells you that!

          Kofi, look at you talking.. have you remover what is in your eyes first before you think of removing someones own? You have the gut to talk about the Ibos, what about your people that killed your fellow men because of a woman, you jobless men. Aren’t you ashamed of your self? I don’t blame you because the women in your country are the ones feeding your men.. lazy things. Go and thank the Ibos that has been feeding you and your families. Listen, from now till one thousands years to come you can never see the back of the Ibos because God has made a great people. As for this writer, well I don;t blame you because the so called Nigeria has made you a useless and lazy person. You better go and find other job to do than to seat here and be writing rubbish..

          • be wise

      • Titilola

        You are really embittered. But I do not think the writer was biased. There are also people from other ethnic groups in his list and I have been making research about the same topic since 2009. Ibo culture is really savage and too barbaric. Almost makes me afraid of my Ibo friend. You are are the ones who will wash the dead body of a man and give his wife the dirty water to drink and shave her hair like a slave just to prove that she did not kill him. To cap it all you practice cannibalism. Clifford Orji proved that. You are too adamant to learn from other ppl’s culture. Your Igbotic pride will not let you learn because you always think you are better than other Nigerians and that is why you ppl are still in your present political condition and you will still remain as a second fiddle for more centuries until you become really civilized.

        • Italo

          Titilola or whatever your name is, your tribe can never change from their saboteur of a thing, it started right from the Biafra War and up till date. From my own understanding, you didn’t said all this rubbish because of the baseless topic the jobless writer posted here, you just hate the Ibos for no reason, despite how we have been feeding you the Yoruba’s, you still have the gut to talk nonsense about the Ibos. Let me ask you this; are you married? and even if you are married, are you still in your husband’s house? You need a deliverance and so your entire tribe. You people should leave us alone..Nonsense

        • Ernest Opara

          The Yoruba kill many souls to bury their dead kings till date. The Yoruba has a tradition they call Oro where no woman caught outside in the night is spared but killed. This Oro goes on today even in the cities like Lagos. The Yoruba thought Nigerians that human beings can be used for money making rituals or power. “Obabaku” is the name given to a dead Oba’s servant that must be buried alive with the kings corpse. I can go on and on, but does that make every Yoruba man/woman bad? By no means, NO. Cemeteries and morgues in Yoruba land are being vandalized for body parts. Please, let us stop washing our dirty leaning in the public. HATE is contagious and no body’s monopoly.

    • Benny Hills

      “His prejudice also blind-folded his eye to see that Igbo marriages are the most stable compared to marraiges in other tribes in Nigeria.” How did you come about that assertion? Are you not biased yourself? Do you really know other tribes in Nigeria well enough to conclude that their marriages are less stable that those of the Ibos?

    • kenny

      I really appreciate your write-up.

  • A Nigerian

    The author of these articles is a very dangerous researcher. He is a weapon of mass destruction to have associated domestic violence and wives killings only to a particular tribe. What does he/she want to achieve? He should be arrested and reprimanded for killing a tribe for a reality that is common globally. Please we should post things that unite us rather than divide us. Every effort tends towards global peace and any individual who associates a common phenomenon to a particular tribe iN NIGERIA is a killer of both husband and wife. Dear author, please desist from being an intellectual criminal and make better use of your talent and skills rather than presenting the Igbos as the devils of the world.

        The Yoruba’s and Hausas really hate the IGBOS at all corners.
        They are the IGBOS number one geopolitical
        foe and they are not putting it out of sight anymore. I cannot understand why
        the IGBOS themselves continues to develop their number one enemies lands. The IGBOS what is wrong taking you guy’s
        money/ riches home and start developing you people father lands. The Government
        has refused to do anything to the IGBOS but you people can do it by yourselves
        and force these stupid impudent set of people Yoruba’s and Hausas to be immigrant
        to you people. They can be model slaves to the Igbo’s if the IGBOS can jointly
        return to their lands. Most of Igbo’s are in Lagos because of sea port and
        International Airport but now Enugu International Airport is functioning 24/7
        and you can fly in and out from Enugu International airport without seeing any smelling
        Yoruba’s and Hausas men with their long chewing sticks and you can redirect
        your goods to PH as that is manageable.

        There are still flowering shrub at Enugu, IMO, Abia, Anambra
        and Ebonyi so why building houses and purchasing lands in your enemy places? Have you see any Yoruba man or Hausa purchasing
        any property in any of IGBOS region. The
        Hausas come to IGBOS with lorry and go back with goat Lorries and you think
        they did not have money to buy property. You Igbo’s goes to Yoruba’s and Hausas
        land to answer Landlord and they are calling you people fool which they now
        seeing that the fool they are calling you guys is not have any impact and they
        start killing people on a daily basis to prove to you that you cannot take that
        of your property to your state or to your land. Those that it has already affected
        are now crying while you continue doing the same mistakes. Your selling Motor parts and other stuffs let
        me tell you once again that whoever it needs will come to buy it anywhere you
        are just as you people going to Germany, Japan, china, USA so on and so on to
        buy goods. It is not mandatory that you will stay in Lagos or to other of your enemies’
        states before you can sale your goods. Every Igbos man and woman are ingenious and
        skillful and putting it in practice will force your enemies to be your servants.

        The two names
        mentioned above without hesitation are the IGBOS Enemies and they want the dawn
        fall of all Igbo’s.

  • kareem

    the reason for this mass brutter killings by some nigerian men, i think the reasons behind it bcos 1. fustration impost by economy. 2. some men & women are not lucky in choosing their partner. 3. there is no love in some marriage. 4. some men or women are sex maniac but their partner is opposite. men & women let us try to tolerate one another if we can we shuold seperate, to me seperation is not a sin. cos i hav once hav problem with my former wife but when i cannot cope with her, we seperated

    • Blasphemy

      @ Kareem…Many women are in love if the man that has money but they do not check character. Some women get married to aggressive armed robbers and later they cannot even run away. Some get married to police officers who brutalize people every day on the streets of Africa and these women think that they will be exception. A truck pusher will always have little money in the pocket and if the wife should join in any petty trading, life will be really easier for them. but many women do not go for such men. They prefer a stranger with jeep and the effect is that when 419 money finishes and victims become wiser, no more flambouyant life as usual and when you annoy such a man, he remembers how much money he paid for you to your father. He will rain blows on you as if you have driven all his 419 victims to wisdom. Some are really born aggressive like our society. It’s difficult not to be agrraesive as African. where violence is seen from the day of birth. Slapping a new born baby who does not want to suck a fucking dirty breast. He learns the hard way that in Africa kacki no be leather. even if you are born with silver spoon on your mouth, be carefull!! some one might steal away the silver spoon and change it to wooden spoon before you know what is happening.

  • Simply-the-best

    It is so pathetic in this country… Everything has to be in “Jesus Name”, “God deliver us”, “It is the devils doing” and all that crap. Nigerians, always being religious about everything. There has to be some religious undertone to people’s actions in this country, very sickening. What has God, Jesus and the devil got to do with all these. What nonsense. Look, these are crimes and we live in a lawless society. It is sad that these things keep happening. I say so bcos there is so much violence out there between men and women, between men and men and between women and other women, between parents and their children that is being perpetrated every simple day that nothing is being done about. To say we should keep praying and the problems will be solved is the most annoying statements some Nigerians always make. It is a defeatist attitude. God is not going to come down from Heaven to save these victims. If it were that simple, He would have done so already. Do you think before they died, they did not call on God? Why did He not save them. It is up to you and I in society to wake up.and address the state of lawlessness in our country. It is not the devil doing this but human beings. But with the way the society and politics is structured in this country. A country without people representation in actual Government. It will really be a miracle. Alas may that is what the praying public is really saying. Good luck with that. May all the innocent victims rest in peace. As God did not see fit to save them perhaps in his infinite mercy he will admit them to Heaven. That is the only prayer I choose to say for these people. Bye

      Janine, That is a very foolish thing to say! Just because you’re not Africa, you believe you are better than they are. Come to Africa, you will see a lot of educated people not self righteous bigots like you who think they are better than every other person. As for the writer of this article, i think he has an underlying hatred for Ibo people because, it is not only in Ibo-land or even Africa, i have heard murder cases of husbands killing their wives. its all over the world. Check America for instance, you’d probably hear a lot of murder cases. so i believe the writer of this article is not a journalist because of his biased thinking.

    I’m weeping as I’m typing this comment of mine. I learnt from this articles and the comments of other people that have commented joined with my own view that DISCIPLINE is not pleasurable but I think is what boys, guys and men of this time need…

    Truly, that might be mouth-running girls, ladies and women out now, but please, let us not by ourselves send our gender into extinction as we are decreasing daily as a result of our actions towards the opposite sex regarded as “WEAKER VESSELS” but which right now I can’t refer to them as weak at all…

    Discipline in the sense that, let us learn to endure to a point when
    if our wife offends us, instead of beating or killing her, let us cry
    bitterly and F-L-E-E from her or her presence at that moment to avoid
    DEEP UNREPAIRABLE DAMAGES that our action might caused us.

    Mae West said and I quote “When women go wrong, men go right after them”

    Remember, Eve caused all humanity sin and Adam the opportunity of losing his garden (all that he had worked for before Eve came into existence).

    God, help men and women…

If they allow it good but if not. May God have mercy on all of you African baboon whop are all impotent to making you continet at leaast a vilage worthy of the riches you all are wasting in your jungle.. Imagine idiots each blaming each other as if any of you is better than the other., African from noth to south and from east to west is aland for animals and not humans. Proof it if you think I’m wrong. Please do not tell me that you can drive cars because monkeys in circus can do the same but monkey protects monkey without checking whether they cpome from Housa, Yoruba or south Africa or Igbo. They wrote that people who originated directly from monkey (judging from behaviour) are killing their women or wives, and all the monkey can do is instead of addressing the issue of violence as a repeating general thing from it’S specie, all they could do is to shift the blame to another monkey as if they are better off. Now shout all ofyou and return the names to proof yourself.

  • Blasphemy

    This is the promised phrase:

    Yes, let us blame tribes, religion or whatever we can lay our hands
    on. Black man is simply a devil. and can never do anything better. It is
    seen more in Africa because the slavesdrivers are not there to tender
    to the “let loose” animals. They will give every reason for their
    animalistisic agressiveness and the rest of them with the same
    animalistiistic endeavour are trying to exclude themselves. Tell me
    which part of Africa was more bad enough to sell their citizens into
    slavery. The crime in Africa or among Africans does not annoy me. But
    for another black man to start giuving excuse from what and which tribe
    crime comes more is really very funny. In south Africa, Congo and many
    Africanm countries, there have been some cases of murdering the whole
    village. Now some one is terming Boko Haram a political killing.
    Africans will always have reasons to murder and beat. To which tribe do
    African police belong because all of them use AK47 boot on their
    citizens (that is the lucky ones who are not shot). The worst thing the
    white people has done is to tame black people to live like humans which
    they are far from being called. A race creativeless, thoughtless, lack
    of self preservation. they destroy anything they lay their hands on.
    Introduce any bsiness or crime to a black man, before you count two the
    whole black nation will be doing “just only that business in a more
    crude way. Worst they will blame each other as to who is more criminal
    than the others. They go to universities just to be called educated but
    they are stil so raw even with the title of professors. Just like in the
    wild life all of them want to be called kings and every one wants to be
    a ruler but to manage one’s self is the most difficult task for any
    black man unless under controll. If you leave black man without
    controll, he does not hold any rule. The blavck women are as wild as theri men and that is why they are murderd. They (the women) raise such men who murder them
    because in Africa and all over the world, it’s only women who mainly
    stay with the children. I think that it’s people who have been evil in
    their past lives come to the world as black people because being born in
    African is like being born in a hell from the word go. THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE DOOMED CONTINENT

      anyway, I am a Pastor from Nigeria and has gone through your write up. It was harsh but reflect the better truth. I don’t know the way forward for the black race, because education should have being the hope, but the black race took education and customize it to suit black nature. The slavery of blackman will only end when the world end. But certainly not in the near twenty milliniums to come.

      • Tobias

        Holy Jesus!! This actor have mentioned four to five Igbo names including a meaningful face on this article and you guys keep defending why not mentioning one or two names from his or her ethnic group if what him or her saying is not the truth? Everyone can see the mind of the writer and of course you guys know the tribal this write come from. I am a core Igbo man and I believe this actor have done great job for exposing this to public but where he made vital mistake is by labeling it to IGBOS . He should not forget that we have many terrible people in this prostitute country called NIGERIA. This Remark is not for only IGBOS for all African men I mean those who feel he is the head and for that he can do whatever. Hmmm I do not support anybody from any tribal kill to his wife for whatever reason instead of that you can send her packing or even use style to take her back to her family by yourself. That will give you credit even if you wake up one morning to find out that the children you have been fathering are not truly yours. The woman have destroyed you already but you can just hold yourself and send her immediately packing at worst if you cannot hold yourself and cannot defend the children as yours. Killing the woman will worst the case because their family will not accept the allegation and taking you to any court of Law you guilt. Who kill my sister or any of my relative just because she married to him with whatever reason will not go free.

            Permit me to take side with you, obviously, the writer let down his/her tribal biasness before he could deliver a very important message to the readers. The message was to display cruelty to women by men, rather his/her tribal prejudice aired that this atrocity is common among a tribe. flip through the pages of all dailies ten year back and you will be surprised to see even your so called saint tribe is also guilty of the same cruelty. Why start with the high cost of marriage of a tribe, it makes no sense, if your tribe gives out their ladies for a kilogram of “pomo”(animal hides) no one cares. How could you have allowed such vital message to be watered down because of your personal tribal myopic mind.

          • Ernest Opara

            You trivialize this error of judgement? You call a genuine protestation of this profiling of the Igbo man as barbaric “making excuses?” How do you feel when you, as a black man, enters a public space in Europe or America and a security man begins checking you out to make sure nothing is stolen in spite of the fact that you can pay his bosses salary? What goes around they say, comes around.

  • Blasphemy

    Why should I justify any type of killing by saying that it is more in one place and peculiiar to certain people as if killing even a sick dying person is justified at all. African state of fact makes the people (if they are people’) to behave more wild than a mad wild cat. Each one has the fuckinbg got to say “It wasn’t me”, It wasn’t us”. forgetting that “A nigger is a nigger” whether he or she comes from any part of the land desscribed by Scipio Africanus or the one sold to the land described by Americo Vespucci. They all do thesame. They always blame each other and they leave all problems unsolved. and unresolved. They even lost their gods and embrace the god of their tomentors. They will never sing any love songs while they worship foreign gods. They are slaves to the world because their gods have left them. Killing is killing. Africa man will have excuse to destroy.

      look at Nigeria for instance, with the discovery of oil for close to 40yrs now, there is no single Nigerian indigenous major oil exploration and development company. The present once are SPDC, Chevron, Mobile etc to mention few. None is Nigerian own. These Foreigners drill whatever they want, send it to their country to refine it, and tell the govt whatever they want as the actual amount they extracted. If you handover those companies to Nigeria, they will all die a natural death in less than ten yrs just like they way they kill all the refineries.
      Every colonial asset relinquished to Nigerian State has been killed, talk of Nigerian Airways (dead), Nigerian Railway (dead), Nigerian Telecommunication
      (dead), NIGERIAN INSTITUTIONS (dead), Nigerian Gov’t (dead).
      What amazes me with black man especially Nigerians is that even when we see, we don’t observe and Understand. For God’s sake look at USA and Europe that tagged themselves as ‘Christian nations’, they separated religion from Govt so as to allow themselves to deal with governance as they should. look at Arabs, Saudi Arabia, UAE who developed their nations even with the religions coloration. But here in Nigeria, some religious fundamentalist are claiming more Islamic than Saudis by going to Somalia to learn terrorism and coming home to unleash their newly acquired skills. Till date Over 90% of Nigerian Muslim population is looking for how to enter strick Islamic bondage like afghanistan and Pakistan even when they see nothing to admire from such nations.

    The best is to luck all Africans in a forest reserve and stop them from multiplying because they cause a menace to the world. They have blemed each other even during the slvery in the white man’s sugarcane plantation. The only thing they have is physical power, and sexual power to multiply. They have to be tamed. Who among you is better when all of you think that any of your fucking tribes is better than the other. and all of you are either living in a partial hell or with stolen richness and so untamed and agressive. I trhink that Africans should be dinied access to internet because it’s for humans with dignity and skf estime. Who among you will not sell his country for 50milion dollars. Your predecesors sold for Schnapps and mirror and you people are nopt doing any better either. Blame yourselves. Igbo people are defending themslves as if they love themslves and Yorubas are playing nationalists and Hausa man with his Arabic slave mentality is playing God fearing… Which God. Not long ago the Yorubas nearly finidhed themsleves a land issue. The Hausa with their Bokos are even killing a fellow Hausa simply because he or she chooses another of the colonialists religion called Christianity. Igbo man is reday to sell his mother and brethren for a chieftancy title. Let us not talk about Cameround, Congo, Kenyans, Ugandans and in fact all over the fuvccking African soil and you people are stil talking. DISGUSTING REALLY. Notice that we all speak the language of the slave master to even talk to each other. We use the slave master’s weapon to kill each other and we blame each other as if we are the slave master. Can’t yozu people open your eyes and see the big problem swallowing all of you. HATRED FOR EACH OTHER. May the true God of the land forgive us all and give us chance to repent. Maybe the earth will be less heavy on our bitter souls. I know that may of you will like like to get me physically and butcher me as you do to your people for stealing a loaf of bread but NO WAY. YOU CAN ONLY BOIL YOUIR SOULS OFF In ANGER TO SHOW WHAT ALL OF YOU ARE. BRAINLESS MOROONS WHO CANNOT USE THEIR HEADS TO KNOW WHEN THEY ARE TEASED AND WHEN SOME ONE IS TRYING TO PULL THEM APPART. THEY ALWAYS JUMP INTOP THE SIMPLEST TRAPP LIKE A HUNGARY LION. As a matter of fact it’s even better you kill of you, tghe better for the world because all of you are causing neusance and menace to the world.

    The truth of the matter is that the Ibo Man is the most travelled of all the tribes in Nigeria. The writer should realise that if there are 100 Nigerians living anywhere in the world, more than 90 % are of Ibo extraction.
    So if you read that ibos kill their wifes in the US, how many Hausas or Yorubas live in the US compared to the Ibos. The Ibos are the most peace loving, non violent Nigerians but the most enterprising. Get your facts right, Mr.

    This article is one of the many hate articles targetted at making some people feel bad. People hear news of how people from different parts of Nigerian murder people each day but when you call upon them to present all they have heard so far they will quickly remove their tribes and present you what other tribes do while not failing to tag it ‘objective report’. Am used to reports like this, Igbo people are the only ones with tales of wife killings and all vices and so? Why not leave us to deal with that ourselves while playing your saintly life? Or do we beg you work? Or is it your sisters that are being killed? The only thing that explains all these write ups are insecurity- the whole of many other Nigerians feel so insecure when you mention the word Igbo. Why? because they only get to eat from the crumbs that fall from our table. They suffer from abject poverty and beg from the sojourners in their land so its making them jealous each day. Beware of gastric ulcer cos whether you like it or not we will continue to soar higher than the eagle and you go dey die, dey die like paupers.

      You really have inferiority complex. you eat all sort of rubbish. that is why ur women have hair on their chest and grow beards like witches! You know very little and suffocate Nigeria with your ill gotten money from piracy, hazardous drugs, and armed robbery. You have no conscience. If you dont learn to incorporate with the Hausa and Yoruba, i bet you, you will not smell Aso rock. The question you should ask youself is why has the Yoruba ans the Hausa never fought in history. because the Hausa is gentle and humble and the Yoruba though more educated than the Hausa but does not call him a fool. Yoruba still respect Hausa because of their gentle nature. you call us dirty fool and expect us to like you. shior. You ppl are just arrogant fools. Your pride is irritating Jesus and Allah. Open you bible since you are catholics: you will read in the bible that the pride of a man will destroy him. and a proverbs goes: pride goes b4 a fall. watch out. One Nigeria!

    The Yoruba’s and Hausas really hate the IGBOS at all corners. They are the IGBOS number one geopolitical foe and they are not putting it out of sight anymore. I cannot understand why the IGBOS themselves continues to develop their number one enemies lands. The IGBOS what is wrong taking you guy’s money/ riches home and start developing you people father lands. The Government has refused to do anything to the IGBOS but you people can do it by yourselves and force these stupid impudent set of people Yoruba’s and Hausas to be immigrant to you people. They can be model slaves to the Igbo’s if the IGBOS can jointly return to their lands. Most of Igbo’s are in Lagos because of sea port and International Airport but now Enugu International Airport is functioning 24/7 and you can fly in and out from Enugu International airport without seeing any smelling Yoruba’s and Hausas men with their long chewing sticks and you can redirect your goods to PH as that is manageable.

    There are still flowering shrub at Enugu, IMO, Abia, Anambra and Ebonyi so why building houses and purchasing lands in your enemy places? Have you see any Yoruba man or Hausa purchasing any property in any of IGBOS region. The
    Hausas come to IGBOS with lorry and go back with goat Lorries and you think
    they did not have money to buy property. You Igbo’s goes to Yoruba’s and Hausas
    land to answer Landlord and they are calling you people fool which they now
    seeing that the fool they are calling you guys is not have any impact and they
    start killing people on a daily basis to prove to you that you cannot take that
    of your property to your state or to your land. Those that it has already affected
    are now crying while you continue doing the same mistakes. Your selling Motor parts and other stuffs let me tell you once again that whoever it needs will come to buy it anywhere you are just as you people going to Germany, Japan, china, USA so on and so on to buy goods. It is not mandatory that you will stay in Lagos or to other of your enemies’ states before you can sale your goods. Every Igbos man and woman are ingenious and skillful and putting it in practice will force your enemies to be your servants. The two names mentioned above without hesitation are the IGBOS Enemies and they want the dawn fall of all Igbo’s.

    The writer of this blog was heavily biased and very unfair of his judgment. He talked about women who killed their wives in 2012 and only singled out the Igbos. Meanwhile, Domestic violence is global and not restricted to any tribe at all.Even in his story, the man who threw his wife into a pit Latrine was Yoruba;Johnny Omorogieva is an Edo name; Peter Odion is a clabar name. There are also other stories where people from other tribes have killed and maimed their wives. Some of these links are shown below:

    Let’s not also forget the case of the Skye bank Lady who was butchered by her husband.

    I’m an Igbo woman, happily married to an Igbo man and our men cherish their wives and children and value their marriages.I will never condone domestic violence but I beleive that it is barbaric, uneducated and socially offensive for a person to publish evil against another tribe. This publication is aimed at inciting hatred for the Igbos and it has already achieved it’s aim. Very Shameful indeed

    • Titilola

      It is not true. You are not allowed to be extra marital but ur husband is allowed( non of you should be allowed). If he dies, they will shave ur hair and make u drink the water they use to wash his body and do rituals on you and a woman does not inherit land in Ibo land. His property would be shared among his brothers if ur children are not grown yet. You better voice out so that the govt can make a law that protect your future. Sad enough, if he ides, you must not remarry after the bible says ‘ till death do them part’ you ppl are very primitive. I’m sorry to say…

    Read this as well…I am really pained by this article and it’s heavy tribalism. I am also ashamed of my fellow Nigerians, who in their ignorance, supported the writer without verifying facts.

  • OneNaijaMan

    It’s funny that people have chosen to make this a tribal issue. I was pissed at the article right from the title – “… Nigerian men killing their wives’. While I do not support the killing of people – for whatever reason -, domestic violence happens everywhere in the world. There have been reported cases of domestic killings all around the world. I believe the write is very bias in his writing and this is how people outside Nigeria get fed exaggerated false stories about Nigeria and her people.

  • uncle Gaga

    all the same or in any case Nigerians are loving poeple, they love their wives and have value for family life than most parts of the world…no one sees the good side now just the few bad eggs…but believe me Nigerians still make the best of husbands…caring and loving

  • http://newsrescue.com/contrl-

    In my own case I will advice the Igbo to learn from all the ethnic groups where they have in one way or the other lived with and have change of attitudes towards their wives and to those Yoruba women and girls running after Igbos money BE VIGILANT

    • Titilola

      Thank you very much. They are too proud to learn. They always think they are superior to all Nigerians. But their cannibalism,barbarism and savagery is really shameful.

  • fred ___abuja

    the author of this piece is selfish and arrogant. His portraying the igbos in a bad light because of domestic violence has no basis and no effect on the well being of the Igbo nation. let him go to hell with his findings cos we are not bothered!

    Father forgive them for they know not what they do, thou it might seem as if

    It is sad to see the way some people use what ever power at their disposal to blackmail and even destroy others. The Igbos are a people known for their natural and complete excellent respect for their women. Just the same way they take to their business and commerce where ever you see them on the face of the earth? Unlike most other ethnic nationalities in West Africa and Nigeria who marry as many wives as they like, 99.9% of Igbo men of today stick to their one wife! Whatever is the purpose of the writer of the article, I think he has failed in his diabolic and evil attempt to paint about 28million Igbo speakers in Nigeria black! The people mentioned here can not represent 28million persons!

    The writer or compiler does not deserve any reasonable consideration because he is a menace not only to the peace of Nigeria as a nation but a real danger to his own ethnic group. Moreover his ethnic group has no name! Just look at dirty and blood thirsty people joining here to say “they know how to take care of women more than the Igbos”. What an act of blasphemy! There is no way someone with more than one wife can love and take better care of those mumu more than someone with just one wife. The cases the writer cited here are very rare exceptions. They do not represent the behavior patterns of the average Igbo man! Therefore it is very idiotic and foolish of the writer to use this to condemn or judge the Igbo race as he did!

    Any sensible and reasonable individual (even children) can easily look around the country today and pinpoint with precision who and where is evil. When you read the dailies today the headlines is about the ritual murders and human sacrifices all over Yoruba land, the the religious conflicts and killings (by one side) in the north, the militancy, armed conflict and kidnapping in the minority states. What did the writer say about the way most young girls and boys in the middle belt states have become professional armed robbery and child prostitutes? in the middle belt states? Mr writer, I advice you to just close your eyes for a moment and think about the family where you come from…, Search yourself, your brothers close friends and kinsmen and ask yourself the following question: … How many Igbo men am I better than today???

    The problems we faces as human beings are ignorant and intolerance. people should learn the best approach in solving problems without inflicting injury on people. The level of our civilization in the country still primitive.

  • Obasi Ogbonnaya

    Clearly the so-called Gary First went through newspapers and selected reports of wife-murders that were about Igbos. The appropriate response would be to go through newspapers and select those reports of wife murders committed buy non-Igbos in the same period that his report covers. But to do so would be to decend to the gutters with him (or her, for while the writer used the names of the original writers of the report he cited, people like him do not use thewir real names). Whatever his intentions are for doing such a hatchet job against Ndigbo, there is just one thing he should know. If name calling were enough to wipe a nationality out of existence, Ndigbo would have long ceased to exist. But we cannot be wished away. Not even the frequent ethnic cleasing visited on us periodically since 1945 has been able to subdue our spirits. Rather, we keep waxing stronger and stroger everyday, and growing more and more in population. And, meanwhile, we are not even organized to proptect our collective interests like other tribes have done. Clearly, God’s hands of favour are upon Nidigbo to do us good. So Gary First invectives against us will not hurt us. He rather hurts himself.

    whoever is publishing things like this should be aware of the use of language because i think it is wrong attributing such horror to a particular race in Nigeria (igbos),murder is committed everywhere and anywhere by every race,if you have a personal issue against the Igbo’s be bold enough to come out straight on it or simply keep shut.the igbos are industrious,harworking and knows what love and marriage is,

  • idris

    na wa for this nigeria

  • ihavespoken

    i didnt want to write on this article before but some made mention of Nigerians not voting for the igbo president. Well, if i may ask for the past years that the igbo man have not ruled what have become of this nation. How far have we gone with development? does it mean the angelic people are not doing there jobs? or does it mean the ibos that are the devils are now better than the people that called themselves the better part. Talking about fake drugs..Like we all know from the generations. Igbo men have been very industrious even and after the war and never had any bad intention of indulging in any bad or harmful trade. But after the war they were cut off so many things including food and other resources that sustain lives, then being very industrious like they used to be they thought of ways of surviving rather than they stay idle and die. That is where the issues of all those things you mentioned came in. Most of this drugs are sold in ibo land, pirated movies and made in and out of ibo land. What we fail to understand is that Nigeria is falling. I have so many Yoruba friends and i love them all, so do i have Hausa friends. This writer could write this up just to get attention and bring misunderstanding to some jobless people who have time to comment over and over on this issue. And he is sitting somewhere laughing his ass out. You guys should forget about this, pray and move on with your daily lives rather than throw insults and curse to each other for nothing. God bless Nigeria

    This act of men killing their wife’s is very bad, and it showz clearly that, those who exhibit this character don’t have love over their wife’s and even their born children. so they should better stop for it is Bad.

  • Ernest Opara

    Would you descend this low to spite a section of your own country based on hatred? The Igbo believes in “live and let live” but you believe that you cannot advance your tribe without vanquishing the Igbo? The sky is large enough for birds of different plumage to flock and expand their horizon. All genocides were caused by this kind of hate. The Igbo had suffered one before and for no other reason than their industry, religion (Christianity) and identity. Any further attempt to push them to the wall might be dangerously resisted.

    This comment is for all.. why hating on one ethnic group or the other..
    It is not worth it. However, I can not say the author is biased rather
    is bias is fueled by the nature of his sample. Though no evidence; I think
    there are more igbos in USA than any other nigerian ethnic group. May
    be if a similar research is carried out in the UK or Brazil using the
    same methods the findings will definitely be that Yoruba men are killing
    their wives. This hypotheses can only be true if there is an ethnic
    group within the sample of larger population than the igbos..
