An Abia state-based man identified as Kalu Ilum, has been beaten to death and set ablaze for shooting his wife, Mercy Chichi, dead
Though the cause of the sudden anger is currently unknown, the sister of the deceased revealed that he was abusive in nature. It was learnt that though the mother of six had birthed six children for Kalu, built a house for him and bought a car for him in a bid to sustain her marriage, she was confirmed dead this morning in Nkporo, Abia State
Moments before being shot by her husband and father of her kids, Mercy was preparing their children for school around 7a.m
The action left many residents of their area angered as they resorted to show the suspect their wrath, prompting him to run inside a well as a means of escape
He was however cajoled to come out of the well, mobbed, brutally beaten and set ablaze while his house was also destroyed.
