Few months ago also, the Anambra State police command reportedly launched a manhunt for an ex-boxer, identified as Everitus, for allegedly beating his wife, Fidelia, to death. It was gathered that Everitus, who is also a popular pastor with a charismatic church attacked his wife during a disagreement at their home in Uli, in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Fidelia had demanded money for Christmas food from the husband when an argument ensued between them. As the argument degenerated, the retired boxer was alleged to have beaten the wife to a pulp.
The matter was said to have been reported to the police at the Ihiala division as some youths vented their anger on the suspect’s country house in Amamputu village, in the same council area. An eyewitness told newsmen;
