A man was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly beating up the mother of his three children because she refused to have more kids, police in Nigeria said.
Lagos police have arrested James Obinna, after being accused of nearly killing Ebere Obinna, because she decided that three children was enough for her.
James Obinna was charged with one count of assault. He was booked into the Kirikiri prison, and his bail was set at N50,000 ($251).
According to the police investigation, the two had been married for several years, and they have three young children together.
Last week, James Obinna told his wife that he would like to have more children, but she disagreed, saying that they do not have the money to support additional kids.
After bringing up the issue numerous times, his wife told him that her decision is final. James Obinna then grabbed his wife and tried to have sex with her.
She fought him off and ran out of the house. James Obinna ran after his wife, and punched her numerous times in the face until she fell into a coma.
Ebere Obinna was rushed to a hospital, where she is being treated for her injuries.
