  1. Oleku o,,There are really different degree of anger and madness.So much frustration in the land.Nigeria needs healing and peace of God.

  2. With this frequency of domestic violence, why are people still encouraged, even pressurized to marry? If it takes you 20years to see your compartible partner, is the long wait not worth it than rushing into and out of it? Just for not having prepared meal in time, this woman was hacked with a matchete. Marriage, once a very sweet experience, is no more that adorable.

  3. WHERE CAN WISDOM BE FOUND ???. D HEART OF MAN IS DESPEATELY OVER-WICKED !SOME MEN WOULD HV BEEN BETTER GONE WITH SANITARY-TOWELS .

  5. The fact is many husbands refused to learn how to cope with there wives in marriage. They have allowed themselves to be used by there imperfection and lack of self control. Our women too sometimes you deliberately act in such a way to show your displeasure perhaps over what your husband have done to you. That might not be the best strategy. Act well and see his attitude change with time. The books of 1peter 3:1 says that if you continue to behave well you will win your husband without a word. Your husband will come back to his senses and perhaps even beg you.

    • Domestic abuse has nothing to do with the woman’s character or behaviour It is rhetoric like this that helps abusive people legitimise their behaviour You might be the most well behaved wife and you will still get beaten like a dog. Please let us stop being ignorant to the devises of abuse. Abuse must stop and so must all the excuses.

  6. I don’t think this man is alright. What if the wife died in the process, he will claim is the devil! This man is completely mad!

  7. He is insane what could av made someone use cutlass on another person for any reason at all, not to talk of food.

  9. Before he was taken on bail I guess, nay, I hope he was in custody of some sort and in those few days learnt the virtue of patience. I am almost sure his meals were not served on time while in custody and that the coward did not beat up anybody for that lapse. Ye ye man !!!

  10. “A hungry man is an angry man“ but that shouldn‘t lead to something of this nature.
    If your wife didn‘t prepare your meal on time, it could be that she was so busy with certain things in the home that are equally very neccesitating.

    Why not make do with some snacks or something while waiting for the meal proper?
    I shall never beat my wife in future. By the grace of God.

    I take a stroll…

  11. Its because u don’t give ur wife money earlier to cook that why she always prepare ur food late how can u give her money late and expect her to cook and serve ur food early don’t u know she will go to the market ur very stupid for beating her up
