According to reports, the pair who have been married for a period of 11 years developed issues in their marriage after the complainant identified as Bukola got a job at a hospital.

Adebiosu who is a boutique owner reportedly started having a problem with his wife's style of dressing which often led to matrimonial fights.

Violence in marriages

In Nigeria, violence in marriages which often puts women on the part of blows, or even death, has been a major theme in an African society will little regard for the female gender.

One of the results is a country with an increasing pool of feminists who are calling for equal opportunities for a man and a woman. Being a nation where the power to drive things lies in the hands of men, the need to call for equality has been mainly from the camp of women.

Their strong activism has unfortunately not protected the latter gender from been murdered and even assaulted by the police.

An assault by operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), on a woman expecting quadruplet in Delta State, has allegedly caused the latter to lose her pregnancy.

An Instagram user, Jane Mena, who is a friend of the victim revealed how the incident occurred in a long post. She explained that the expectant mother went into a coma following a violent treatment in the hands of the police.

A confrontation with a male driver proved to be the catalyst of what became a chain of unfortunate event, adding weight to the call to have the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) scrapped.
