A four month pregnant housewife, identified as Njideka, from Okigwe local government area of Imo State, narrowly escaped death from her husband, Kingdom Ike, when he allegedly ran her over with his tricycle for prying into his amorous relationship with his mistress.
An eyewitness, Mr Robinson Akunesi said that trouble started when the wife who was returning from her village to Umuahum , Ndegwu, ran into her husband and his mistress in the matrimonial home as they were kissing and cuddling and was about to leave their home after an alleged round of illicit affair.
“but before the wife could open her mouth to inquire what he was doing with his mistress in their matrimonial home, he jumped on his tricycle, which he used for commercial purposes, and ran her over,” he said.
The eyewitness further alleged that it only took the grace of God to save the pregnant woman, who was hooked to the side of the tricycle and was dragged along for few kilometres before she was rescued.
LEADERSHIP gathered that the pregnant woman was taken to a nearby clinic by a good Samaritan for treatment of the injuries she sustained during the incident.
Meanwhile, the husband was said to have fled with his mistress after the incident.
