According to reports from P.M. Express, trouble started for Mrs Onyekachi after her husband was arrested for committing a criminal offence and was detained by the police at Area M Police Command, Idimu.

Francis, from Enugu State, allegedly obtained some money from one Raphael Chimaobi Ndunagu under the false pretence and took off. The case was reported to the police who trailed and eventually arrested and detained him at the station.

As a supportive and good wife, Onyekachi, went to the police and asked them to release him to her and she stood as surety. She promised to bring him any time his presence is needed at the station.

However, when Francis was released, he abandoned his wife and their six children and fled, telling the wife to sort herself at the station. When the police asked Onyekachi to produce Francis, she told them that he ran away after his release from the station.

She added that she had made every efforts to bring him back and that he has even abandoned her and the children.

Since she stood as a surety, the police subsequently arrested and charged her to court. At the Isolo Magistrate’s court where she was arraigned, she pleaded not guilty.
