Man attacked by wife over no Christmas meat

In a shocking incident on Christmas Eve, a 44-year-old man, Denis Obua, became the victim of a violent attack by his wife, Milly Acen, in Abutataro village, Alemere Parish, Awingiri Sub-county, Amolatar District.

The altercation allegedly began when Obua returned home in the evening after having purchased meat for an unidentified woman with whom he was rumored to be involved in an extramarital affair. The wife, Milly Acen, reportedly did not take kindly to this revelation, sparking a heated argument between the couple.

As the dispute escalated, witnesses say the confrontation turned physical, culminating in a fistfight between Obua and Acen. The situation took a dangerous turn when Milly Acen grabbed a panga and attacked her husband, leaving him with a deep cut at the back of his head.

SP Patrick Jimmy Okema, the North Kyoga Regional Police Spokesperson, confirmed the incident, expressing concern over the escalating domestic violence. He stated, “After seeing the pictures circulating on different social media platforms, our territorial police in Amolatar District followed closely. Fortunately, the chairman LC1 of the area was informed in time and together with the victim’s brother responded and rushed the victim to Amai Hospital where he is receiving treatment.”

The suspect, Milly Acen, has been taken into custody and is currently detained at Amolatar Central Police Station. She faces a charge of unlawful wounding, and police investigations are ongoing.

“Inquiries are still ongoing. However, as police, we want to condemn very strongly the women’s actions of taking the law into her hands,” emphasized SP Okema in a statement released by the police.

The incident serves as a grim reminder of the need for peaceful conflict resolution, particularly during the holiday season. Domestic violence remains a critical issue that requires attention and intervention to ensure the safety and well-being of individuals and families in the community.
