Man Snatches Friend’s Wife, 5 Children

A 52 year-old man, Gilbert Maduako, has lost his wife,
Oluchi and five children after his friend, Akwusi Aluwaogu, who allegedly
snatched Oluchi and took away the children claiming that he was their father.
The incident happened at Ugwuakwu Village in Umuchu in
Aguate Local Government in Anambra State, southeast Nigeria.
The marriage which produced those children, collapsed after
Oluchi and her children moved to Aluwaogu’s home who is an indigene of Akokwa
town in Imo State and introduced the man to her children as their real father.

P.M.News learnt that both Maduako and Aluwaogu were good
friends for years before he married Oluchi.
Unknown to Maduako, his friend was secretly dating his wife
even though he visited them as a family friend.
He later got to know when he returned from work and did not
find his wife and children.
He started looking for them and later found them at
Aluwaogu’s house at his village in Akokwa, Imo State.
The wife reportedly introduced Aluwaogu as her husband and
father of those five children.
It was not certain who among the two husbands actually
impregnated Oluci and had the children.
P.M.News gathered from the indigeines that the children
belong to Maduako because he properly married Oluchi by paying her bride price.
Trouble started after Aluwaogu planned to give the eldest
daughter to a husband at a tender age to collect her dowry.
Maduako got wind of the plan and reported to the police at
Umuchu Division who intervened.
The police arrested Aluwaogu and took him to the station
where he was interrogated and he confessed that he actually wanted to marry off
the teenager.
He said since they are living with him and their mother, who
actually knew their real father of those children, he had since adopted them as
his own children.
On the fate of his friend, Maduako, he said he cannot force
Oluchi to marry him and suggested that he should go and get himself another
wife and accept his fate.
When our correspondent visited the station, the new DPO was
not around to comment on the matter.

P.M.News gathered from police sources that police stopped
the marriage on two grounds-to determine the rightful owner of those children
and that the girl was too young to get married.
