The Edo State Police Command has arrested an alleged wife beater, Vincent Emmanuel Omoru, over the death of his 5-months pregnant wife in Benin City, Edo State.
Mr Emmanuel Omoru, was said to be an Accountant with a private firm in Benin City.
He and his wife, Cynthia Emmanuel, 31, got married in 2019 and they were expecting their third child before the unfortunate incident occurred.

Talking about the unfortunate occurrence, father of the deceased, Mr Festus Agho told newsmen that his daughter, Cynthia has severally complained of her husband Emmanuel Umoru’s infidelity.
Mr Agho added that the latest was a girl identified as Tosin, a POS operator, who Mr Emmanuel Umoru had earlier introduced to his late daughter as a goddaughter but was eventually discovered to be one of his concubines.
The Accountant was alleged to have been angered when his wife Cynthia Agho went to the said POS girl’s shop opposite her husband’s office to confront her with evidence that she was sleeping with her husband.
Mr Festus Agho stated further that when his son-in-law Mr Emmanuel Umoru called and reported his daughter’s action to him, he sued for forgiveness in the overall interest of peace.
