Hell was let loose on Monday morning in Etitiama Nkporo, Ohafia local government area of Abia state Nigeria following the killing of a middle aged woman by her husband identified as Mr. Kalu Ilum.
An eye witness who spoke with AFRICA THISDAY on the condition of anonymity said trouble started when the late Ilum invaded his wife’s shop at about 7am on Monday and shot her, killing her on the spot.
The couple were said to have unresolved issues, leading the late wife identified as Chichi, a food vendor to seek for a divorce.
Africa thisday gathered that after the dastardly act, the killer husband fled into a well for fear of attack by the locals.
Our source disclosed that it took the intervention of a native medicine man who came to make the fleeing husband uncomfortable in his hiding place, a situation that forced him out from the well.
He was lynched on the spot by angry mob and later set ablaze.
His residence was also set ablaze by the angry youths, causing panic in the area.

Reverend Basie Jackals drew his last breath while preaching during a church service at African Methodist Episcopal Church in Kuruman, Northern Cape, South Africa, on Sunday – Sunday world reports.
According to the report, he sat on a chair while preaching and congregants thought it was part of the sermon.
When he finally fell to the ground, the church members clapped hands, thinking it was still an act. They thought he’d get up, but the reverend was no more.
Several Christians in South Africa believe that he was called home right on his duty post and is believed to have entered a blissful eternity but we are yet to hear what medical science has to say about this.
However, the family of the late cleric has called on people circulating the video of his last message on pulpit to stop as watching such videos has not helped the family recover from the shocking death of their beloved father and brother.
Field commander, pastor James Maina NG’ANG’A has declared that single mothers will not be allowed to fellowship in his church anymore.
NG’ANG’A made it clear that henceforth, only couples married and wedded legally will have an opportunity to pray at his church and receive God’s blessings through him
He stated a number of challenges single mothers pose to the church members, arguing that he will bring it to an end.
Banning then from the church would offer a permanent solution to the differences that had begun ballooning.
The controversial pastor also took a detour and expressed his gratitude for quick recovery wishes from people who had sympathized with his previous condition.
He said his church is committed to serving the lord and transforming lives and that anybody who becomes an obstacle will be instantly excommunicated.
He further explained that single mothers have proved difficult to educate on responsible behavior and many are overwhelmed with evil desires.
According to him, majority of the single mothers come to church in search of potential husbands and boyfriends.
NG’ANG’A said that these behaviors are in contravention of the church manual and as such the perpetrators must be punished accordingly.

“I met Ijeoma 3 years ago. She was perfect but suddenly she started cheating on me and she engages in prostitution. Sometimes she would lie to me that she is traveling to her village but ends up in a Hotel with a man. One day I followed her and caught her in a Hotel with an old man but after begging me I forgave her because I love her so much. Most times my friends tell me to leave her but I can’t. I don’t know why. Just on Friday we had quarrel and fought, after the quarrel I overheard her speaking to someone on the phone about the quantity of the menstrual period she would use to prepare food for me. I heard everything that’s why I reported her to the police”
She denied the claims by her boyfriend Mr. Kingsley but when interrogated by the IPO she admitted to have used it for 7 months.
” I don’t use juju, I don’t know any native doctor. I love my boyfriend so much so I don’t want him to leave me.
A friend of mine told me that if I use my menses to prepare food for my boyfriend he would fall in love with me forever. I have done it for 7 months and it was working well. Please officer it’s not to kill him but to make him love me more.”
When asked if she engages in prostitution, she said;
” I do it once in a while. I use the money to train my two brothers at the university. I didn’t want to bother my boyfriend about their education so I engage in prostitution to train them”
The police public relation officer Mr. Andrew said
“We are still investigating into the matter and if her boyfriend wishes to charge her to court, we would give our appropriate support as demanded by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”
