Housewife beaten to coma for investing family savings in MMM

16 November 2016, 08:48

Lagos - A housewife, recognized as Mrs. Ogenyi, has been beaten to stupor by her angry spouse for allegedly trading the family’s savings in Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox, otherwise known as MMM.

The woman had without the knowledge of her husband invested the savings in the scheme.

Her husband, who works as a driver with one of the commercial transport companies, had travelled to his hometown in Benue and was not expected to return until after a month.

She had thought she could get 30 per cent of her income and replace the money before her husband's return.

Unfortunately for her, the man had to cut short his trip.

Upon his return, he discovered that the family saving box was missing.

The husband had saved the money for their new accommodation.

The husband according to Daily Post inquired to know who broke the saving box but the wife could not give him any satisfactory answer.

When the husband threatened to beat her if she fails to tell him who broke the box, she accepted breaking the box and investing the money into MMM.

Angered by her action, the husband descended on the wife, beating her into coma

On realizing his wife was unconscious, he ran out of the room, living the woman and their three-year-old son and fled to unknown destination.

The neighbours took her to the hospital where they are trying to stabilize her.
