Wife chases after husband to her death
A middle-aged woman was killed in a road accident while chasing her husband and his alleged mistress on Sunday.
According to media reports, the mother of three sighted her husband leaving a shopping mall in Calabar, the Cross River State capital. Her husband was in the company of the lady and the women then tried to block his car with the Toyota Highlander she was driving in.
However, her husband manoeuvred his vehicle out of the attempted blockade before taking the Murtala Muhammed highway in high speed, with his wife in hot pursuit. The wife was trying to apprehend her husband red-handed with his ‘side chick’.
In a bid to outrun her husband, she lost control of the speeding vehicle, veered off the road and slammed the car on a tree, killing herself in the process.
Broadcast journalist and humanitarian, Diana Mary Nsan, shared video from the scene of crash.
“Let us pray for the repose or healing of her soul first. To be honest ,not everyone has emotional capacity. To stand emotional stress they are served. The one thing you must always pray for as a woman,is wisdom. Wisdom is profitable to direct. Wisdom will make you emotionally mature. I feel for the children ,all three of them. I honestly do.” she wrote.
Maikano Hassan, the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Cross River State, who confirmed the development to the Vanguard, said the incident was caused by over-speeding.
”Though the woman was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, but she was said to have died few minutes later due to the injury sustained from the incident.”
No sooner had the news of the accident broke out than thousands of netizens commented about it. Reacting to the accident, some tweeps condemned the husband while others blamed the deceased for her actions.
