Nigerian woman narrates how her husband allegedly bit her eye as she attempted to stop him from beating their 13-year-old daughter with machete
Onyinyechi Ozokolo almost lost an eye when she intervened to stop her husband from machete-beating their 13-year-old daughter.
In her account of her ordeal to journalists in Enugu, the woman claimed that throughout her 13 years of marriage, she had experienced domestic violence.
While living in Coal Camp, Enugu North Council, Onyinyechi and her husband, Ndubueze Ozokolo, are natives of Enugu State's Ezeagu Local Government Area.
Onyinyechi claimed that the incident took place on August 19, 2022, and that she just about made it out alive.
According to her, it all started when she attempted to stop her husband from beating their 13-year-old daughter with a machete.
"He was beating our daughter with a machete, and I tried to stop him from causing grievous harm to the girl." He then turned towards me, held me and bit my left eye. We have been married for 13 years now and my husband has constantly beaten me at every slightest provocation and minor issue within that period," she said.
Onyinyechi said some concerned people took her to the office of Women and Child Justice Initiative Nigeria (WCJIN), a non-governmental organisation in Enugu for counselling and assistance.
The husband denied the allegation, claiming that they were fighting when she brought a stone to hit him, but the stone fell on her eyes and caused her the injury.
Meanwhile, the Founding Director of WCJIN, Mrs. Amaka Ilodigwe, said the victim was bleeding profusely when she was brought to their office and that she had a deep cut on her eyelid.
She said that they were able to get help for the woman and even wrote to the Central Police Station in the area after which the husband was arrested.
