A Nigerian man named Inalu Victor Chukwutem whose wife accused of sexually molesting their 9-month-old son has responded to the allegations.
Mr Chukwutem’s wife, Onyinye Onome had accused her husband of sexually molesting their son and then threatening her life when she made it public.
The couple is reported to have been married for just a year and Onyinye Onome’s allegations came in the heat of some marriage challenges they were having.
Onyinye Onome had claimed her son was in pain and “pooing blood” following the alleged assault. She also alleged that she once caught her husband naked with their son touching his penis.
Responding to the allegations, Mr Inalu Victor Chukwutem in a Facebook statement described the allegations as “false” and “frivolous”, alleging that his wife is making the allegations because he requested for a DNA test for their son.
Inalu Victor Chukwutem said he was the one that left the marriage and that his wife had threatened to “set him up” and go to any length to damage his name.
He also shared screenshots of his wife begging him to make their marriage work after he walked out of it.
