Claim: Nigerian Man 'Raped to Death' by Five of His Six Wives

According to the Mumbai-based English-language daily The Indian Express, a Nigerian man from the MidEast state of Benue was allegedly forced by five of his wives to have sex with them until he croaked.

The paper says the women, who were envious of the attention being showered upon wife number six, attacked wealthy businessman Uroko Onoja with knives and sticks, "demanding that he have sex with all of them at once."

A local media outlet reports that Onoja stopped breathing just as the oldest of the five women was climbing onto the bed. Once Onoja's lifelessness became apparent, the wives took off into a nearby forest.

The incident was brought to the attention of the village head, who informed local authorities. Two of the women were subsequently arrested.
