Nigerians have demanded for the arrest of Mr. Pius Angbo a Channels Television staff, accused of physical assault and battering by his wife, Ifenyinwa even as the Management of the media house vowed to investigate and take appropriate action.
A Mother of four, Dr. Ifeanyinwa Angbo called out her husband for allegedly beating her a few weeks after having a baby.
Dr. Ifeayinwa said she had been married to Mr. Pius for six years and since then had not known peace.
She alleged further that her husband battered her just because she advised him to have savings and reduce womanizing.
According to her, when she got pregnant with the baby she just delivered, her husband would heartlessly sit on her tummy and try to strangle her.
Her words, “I think i did not get married to a human being.
“I stumbled on a prayer request my husband wrote before we got married, where he was thanking God for saving him from hatred and abuse of women”, she added.
