A 38-year-old woman, Blessing Igwe, was brought before a Gudu Upper Area Court in Abuja on Wednesday for allegedly battering her disabled husband at the slightest provocation.
She also allegedly resisted arrest when the police came.
Igwe, who resides at CBN Estate at Apo in Abuja, is facing a three-count of assault, criminal intimidation and resisting lawful arrest.
Ogbobe alleged that the defendant was always taking advantage of her husband’s physical challenge to assault him.
“The defendant always takes advantage of her husband’s disability to assault him.
The complainant is a physically challenged person, who uses crutches to walk.
“He has been admitted to hospital because of a head injury as a result of assault and battery from his wife.
“Despite police intervention the accused had repeatedly beaten her husband at the slightest provocation.’’
