An African man was raped to death by five of his wives after he allegedly gave too much attention to the 6th one. According to Nigeria's Daily post, Uroko Onoja was allegedly raped to death in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Uroko returned from Ochanja, a popular joint in the small community of Ugbugbu and headed to the room of his youngest wife. This caused outrage amongst his other wives who, according to the youngest wife, had already convened a meeting plotting what they would do with Uroko. They allegedly invaded her room with knives and sticks, demanding that their husband have sex with all of them at once.
Uroko, who was reported to have six wives because of his 'fame and financial breakthrough', resisted their attack but was overpowered by the women. They ordered that he have sex with all of them beginning with the youngest wife.
However Uroko reportedly stopped breathing when the fifth wife was making her way to the bed.
“Suddenly, my husband stopped breathing, and they all ran out, still laughing, but when they saw that I could not resuscitate him, they all ran into the forest" said his youngest wife.
His body was deposited in a nearby mortuary. Young villagers said he was a "philanthropist" who had contributed positively to the growth of the local community and was one of the most popular members.
So far two of the 5 wives have been arrested after the matter had been reported to the police.
