À woman identified as Augustina Ihugba has thrown her community of Akwakwuma  in  Owerri North Council Area of Imo State in a mournful mood after she allegedly bathed her husband ,Raymond Ihugba with raw acid which eventually killed him .

An close source of the family who recounted the incident said that the late husband  aged 50,  a mason by profession and father of 4 have been in serious issues of allegations of extra  marital affairs by his wife which he had constantly denied before his wife took her decision of permanently ending the issue.

Already the remains of the victim had been deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Owerri pending police investigation and the consummation of his burial arrangement.

The mother of the  deceased-Eunice Ihugba who tearfully gave an insight of the gory incident, disclosed that trouble erupted  between Raymond and Augustina when the latter began to make  financial demand on her son despite his lean resources.

The embattled widow who lost her husband – Fidelis during the Nigerian/Biafran  Civil war said that persistent pleadings  by Raymond  with his wife Augustina to bear with him for his inability  to meet her frequent financial demands consequent upon the  raging recession proved abortive .

This, according to her  ignited frequent quarrel between  them while all her efforts  and those of the  relations of her daughter in-law to arrest  the ugly situation  failed.

According to her, the rancor, bitterness and acrimony which  had rankled in Augustina for months came to the fore when unknown to Raymond, she  had armed herself with acid, trailed him to a place at Ubomiri, in the Mbaitoli council area  of the State where he (Raymond) had erected a structure  for his family to live in.

On sighting him, she said that Augustina instantly rushed at him and poured the acid on him  and quickly took to her heels.

The hapless Raymond was immediately rushed to the emergency ward of the FMC Owerri from where he was transferred to the ward 10 of the hospital where he eventually gave up the ghost.

fighting  back tears from her eyes as she narrated ,she added  that the suspect  was in the habit  of stealing  her husband’s  money  because  of her ostentatious  life style and inordinate desire for the good  things of life  but which her son Raymond was not prepared to tolerate.

A staff of the FMC Owerri, who craved for anonymity attributed  the death  of Raymond to the strike embarked upon  by the doctors; stating  that he could  have been salvaged if the relevant medical  wizards had been around to handle his case.

The  traditional ruler  of the community, Eze Charles Osuji who  confirmed  the incident described it as  an abomination.

The monarch while  assuring  that efforts would  be made to apprehend the fleeing culprit and bring her to book advised residents of the tension soaked community to remain calm and allow the police to handle the matter.

Meanwhile,effort to reach the state police Public Relation Officer ,Andrew Enwerem as at the time of this report was futile .
