A man has sent his wife packing for failing to lash out while being raped by armed robbers while in front of hime.

The heavily armed gunmen had invaded their house around 3 a.m. and demanded for money.

The man, whose identity was given as Baba Eneh, a native of Owukpa in Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State told the robbers that he only had N3’500 at home.

A resident of the area hinted that Baba Eneh, a road transporter begged the robbers to leave them after collecting the money, saying that they just got married and trying to settle down.

Angered by the man’s inability to provide money, the robbers descended on the wife and started raping her. While the robbers had their way, the wife didn’t scream for help, but was moaning instead.

“Instead of her to cry for help, she was busy making some funny sounds, an indication that she was enjoying the sex, even in the presence of her husband,” the source said.

After the robbery incident, the man reportedly ordered her to leave the house on the ground that she disgraced him.

According to the source, it is against the gods of Owukpa for a married woman to sleep with another man.

The man, who was apparently afraid of dying, asked the wife to return to her village until the necessary sacrifices are done.

When contacted, Owukpa Youths Ambassador chairman in Lagos, Samuel Adikwu, said the group was aware of the development but failed to give further details because it was a ‘family affair’.
