A man was accused of attempting to kill his wife and stepdaughters on Anambra after he allegedly inflicted serious bodily harm on them.
The man, identified as Iwuchukwu Anajemba Samson from Mbaukwu, Southern Awka Local Government Area, allegedly attacked and mutilated his wife and stepdaughters and tried to kill them along with his stepdaughters.
The incident took place in Akabo village on Alex Anajemba Street in Mbaukwu, according to reports.
According to a witness, the man constantly abuses the wife and stepdaughters.
It was further reported that on one occasion the man doused one of his stepdaughters with gasoline and lit a match.
In a conversation with a correspondent in Anambra, a local resident said that several attempts by his immediate family and his wife to call the man to order had failed, as the impulsive and always angry man is known for his violence.
While the woman and her children have been taken to the hospital, we call on government authorities, human rights activists and the police to intervene in this ugly incident to avoid further arrests by the parties involved.
