Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has waded into the rift between Channels Television reporter, Pius Angbo, who was called out by his wife, Ifeanyinwa Angbo for battering her four weeks after childbirth.
Recall that Ifeanyinwa Angbo had alleged that her husband assaulted her after she advised him to desist from spending recklessly on other women and save the money to take care of their children.
The couple have now reconciled following Governor Ortom’s intervention. Ortom who met them, reportedly counselled them to always settle their differences amicably and shun the temptation of engaging in violence. He stated that as a young couple with great potentials, the husband being a versatile journalist and the wife a medical doctor, there was the need for them to foster a strong union to serve as models to others.
Mr Angbo on his own part said he has apologised to his wife. He added that he is seeking the forgiveness of the entire women folk and would make amends going forward.
Ifeanyinwa told reporters that she accepted her husband’s apology because their children are still tender. She also said that they need prayers to grow stronger in love and nurture their kids to maturity. The medical doctor also thanked Governor Ortom for taking time out of his very tight schedule to make peace between them.
