Channels TV reporter should be arrested for wife battery, Nigerians react

Samuel Ortom reconciles Channels TV reporter Pius Angbo and wife

Some Nigerians on social media have expressed disapproval over the reconciliation of Channels TV reporter Pius Angbo and his wife Ifeyinwa Angbo after she made allegations of domestic violence against him.

Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom facilitated the reconciliation on Monday.

Mrs Angbo who claimed to be a medical doctor had made a video that went viral on social media on Sunday, alleging her husband had a history of battering her in their six-year-old marriage.

Following Ortom’s intervention, Angbo said he had apologised to his wife, stressing that he also sought the forgiveness of the entire womenfolk and would make amends going forward.

But some Nigerians on Twitter believe the man ought to have been arrested and prosecuted and that the woman’s safety could not be guaranteed.
