Wife’s Report Lands Husband In Trouble


A 42-year old man, Ese Aibangbe, has been arrested by men of the Edo State Police Command for illegal possession of firearm after his wife, Joy, reported him to the police.
His wife reportedly told the police that her husband goes out with the gun every night after he threatened to deal with her for returning home drunk.
Ese, who was paraded by the police said he got married to the woman in 2016 and that they were yet to have children.
He denied threatening to shoot his wife even as a he agreed that he does not have any license to own a gun.
According to him, “It was my wife that set me up. She came back home one day and was drunk. It was about 9:30pm. I quarrelled with her on why she came home late when I have not eaten.
“She started insulting me and I slapped her. She slapped me back. I was surprised she went to tell the police that I have a gun.”
“I was using that gun as a vigilante in my community and not for robbery. I don’t have a license for it. The reason I did not return the gun when police asked people to do so was that I did not hear about it.
“I will forgive my wife if I got out of this mess. I do community work and I am not a criminal.”
But the State Commissioner of Police, Babatunde Kokumo, told newsmen that his wife said he used the gun to hustle.
He said the suspect would soon be charged to court.
