A man identified as Ndubisi Uwadiegwu from Enugu State has allegedly beaten his wife, Ogochukwu Enene, to death over a loaf of bread.
It was gathered that the deceased hailed from Umuokpu village, Awka, Anambra State, but married to her husband who hails from Enugu State.
According to an online notice obtained by our correspondent on Sunday, the first son of the deceased who is aged 14, said their father beat their mother to death with mirror, because she asked him to buy bread for them but he said he had no money.
The son added that his mother decided to use her money to buy one loaf of bread for the children, but the father went into the kitchen and ate the whole bread and when their mother asked him why he finished the bread, he started beating her and it led to her death.
