A middle-aged man, Taofeek Gbolagade, on Tuesday morning, beat his pregnant wife (name withheld) into stupor over her failure to prepare Ramadan meal for him.
The Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Adewale Osifeso confirmed the incident in Ogbere housing estate in Ibadan.
An eyewitness said: “This man always beats his wife over any little misunderstanding they have. I was able to record today’s event. He is a Muslim so I think they had an argument over Sahur.
“This man didn’t mind that she was pregnant with his second child and started pouncing on her. She wailed for hours before she was able to flee to her parents’ house. Gbolagade has flown his house after being declared wanted by the security personnel.”
