The Woman(Ngozi Chukwuani) was rescued by the Ekeaba police division.
According to the police, it took a great effort to break the padlock out of her legs because the key that her husband used for her legs was not available so they requested a welder to cut the chain that was on her legs.

According to him, he stated that the couples are married and they have kids and they are both from Enugu state.

Saint Nchekwube Anakor said: “This evening at no.1 Ike street, Mr Uche Chukwuani chained his wife to a pillar in their building and ran away with the key. Thanks to Ekeaba police whose timely response saved the situation.
He also said “I had to send a welder who cut the chain. One question kept on coming to my mind, what did this woman do to warrant being chained like a dog by her own husband. Does whatever transpired warrant such dehumanization?Most people act in ignorance. Nobody has the right to chain or tie any human being, because it is against the law.
“Presently, he is on the run, but I wonder how long he could run because we must catch him. I thank the residents of that area for giving us timely information.
“I advise people to be wary of their actions; ignorance is not an excuse in law.
“I am always on patrol till daybreak, expecting to hear from you. The neighborhood watch are stationed in every part of the town protecting ur areas. Reach out us for any challenges.”
Mrs Chukwuani told the Tribune news that her husband had earlier threatened to deal with her because his mistress is suffering.
