According to a reader who is from the village, Terfa, a yam farmer who is very hot tempered and feared by many, had always been harsh on his two wives and was also quick to go into a fight with any man who as much as greets them in his presence.
On the day of the incident, it was gathered that the younger wife had gone to a market in the town and came back late, to the annoyance of her husband who accused her of seeing other men.
The woman tried to plead that the vehicle she boarded broke down on the way but her husband would not hear of the explanation and descended heavily on her.
Not done with the beating, he tied her down, inserted an iron rod and ground pepper in her private part. It was the first wife that ran out and inform the village head who mobilized men to go to the woman’s rescue and by that time, she was bleeding profusely.
She was rescued and taken to a nearby clinic to treat her wounds while the young men pounced on Terfa and almost beating him to death but for the intervention of the village head.
