    For allegedly beating his wife to death over a N200 gift , Henry Anaele was , on Wednesday, remanded in prison for the next 30 days by an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court .

    The Chief Magistrate , Mr . O . O . Olatunji , said the accused should be remanded at the Ikoyi Prisons pending advice from the State Director of Public prosecutions .

    Anaele , 40, whose plea was not taken , had appeared on a charge for murder.

    Earlier , Inspector Cousin Adams told the court that the accused committed the offence on June 15 , at about 11. 45 p. m , at No . 72, Goodness Estate , Satellite Town , Lagos .

    Adams said that the accused had found out that someone gave his wife , Chinyere , 35, the sum of N 200 , which did not go down well with him .

    “ This angered the accused who beat his wife to death for collecting the money , ’’ he said .

    The offence contravened Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which prescribes a death sentence for offenders .
    The magistrate adjourned the case until August 6 .

    Only an Igbo man will go this far with his spouse for a mere 200 Naira. This is sad.
