In Benin, Woman Allegedly Hacks Actor-hubby to Death

A Benin-based actor, Mr. Daniel Iyamu, was allegedly killed Wednesday in his sleep by his wife, at their No 1 Agonse Street, Ugbihoko Quarters in Egor Local Government Area of Edo State.

Iyamu was found stone-dead on his bed after his neighbours had forcefully broken the door to his room and gained access into the apartment.

THISDAY gathered that the neighbours were alerted to the scene by the deceased’s children who told them that their father was yet to get up from his bed at about 10am. This, it was further learnt, aroused the curiosity of the neighbours who then took a step further by forcing the door open.

The source also said they discovered some injuries on the deceased’s head which suggested that he might have been hit by a hard object while asleep.

The late actor’s daughter and student of the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi, Faith, told newsmen that her mother, Grace, had been suffering from suspected mental illness which her father had been treating since last year.

The woman, who has been arrested by the police, was reported to have confessed that the late actor died after she had hit him with a pestle.

The woman, who was found unconscious in another room by the policemen drafted to the scene, was revived before she was taken away by the security agents who also saved her from being lynched by their angry neighbours.

When contacted, acting spokesman for the Edo State Police Command, Mr. Ahwara Ejiroro, an assistant superintendent of police, confirmed the incident.

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
