John Nwadiaju, a Nigerian student at Bangor University in North Wales, received an 11-month prison term with a one-year suspension for physically assaulting and torturing his wife, Kosisochukwu Echem.
The 34-year-old was given the punishment, which includes 250 hours of unpaid labor, at the Caernarfon Crown Court on Friday, according to North Whales Chronicle.
Nwadiaju and Echem were married in Nigeria in April 2022, according to the prosecutor, Paulinus Barnes, but they later divorced in August due to allegations of abuse and violence.
The wife, hoping for reconciliation, had visited him in Bangor, where he studied for his Master’s. Still, Nwadiaju was said to have taken her passport and Personal Independence Payment card and assaulted her repeatedly.
Police arrested him at the scene, and traces of blood were found on his person and property.
Despite asserting that he acted in self-defense, Nwadiaju was convicted guilty.
Nwadiaju was given an 11-month prison term, one-year probation, and a 250-hour community service requirement by presiding judge Nicola Saffman.
