Lawyer Seen Assaulting Wife In Viral Video Arrested


An Akwa Ibom -based lawyer, Ekere Ebong who was recorded assaulting his wife at night around their residence in Uyo has been arrested by the Nigerian Police Command.

The Spokesperson of the Command Odiko Macdon in a statement sighted on Monday disclosed that Ebong, 55, was arrested at his Ewet Housing Estate residence in Uyo.

“The suspect assaulted his wife, and dehumanised her, leading to various grievous injuries. He is a known habitual perpetrator of violent acts against his wife over the years.

“As an agency saddled with the protection of lives and property and maintenance of law and order, we cannot allow Ebong to continue this flagrant abuse of human rights, hence, the Commissioner of Police, Olatoye Durosinmi ordered the arrest of the suspect to prevent murder and breakdown of law and order,”

Macdon said.

Macdon further added that the lawyer would be arraigned as soon as the investigation is concluded.

It would be recalled that the assaulted woman in a video that went viral was seen with a bloodied face, wearing only her underwear. The assaulted woman was seen trying so hard to catch her breath whilst crying for help as neighbours who were filming the incident came to her rescue.

A man’s voice could be heard from the background rebuking Ebong for assaulting his wife.

“What are you doing? Look at the way this woman is bleeding. Jesus Christ!” The man said to Ebong who appeared unperturbed and was asking the wife to give him a key.
