Chief Tony
The well known Nigerian business tycoon operating in Sierra Leone, Ezubundun Chinyere commonly known as Chief Tony is presently in detention at the Lumley Police Division on allegation of domestic violence perpetrated against his wife.

According to information gathered from the police, Chief Tony was invited by the Lumley Police on Tuesday, 21st September 2010 to answer to allegations made against him by his wife Jackie Monti Tony, a French national, that he (Chief Tony) beat her up and sprayed an insecticide (Shelltox) in her face at their 26 Spur Road residence in the west end of Freetown.

In her statement, the wife told the police that the beating resulted from her not coming at home the previous Saturday night. The wife said she obtained permission from Chief Tony to attend a night party to which she said her friend by the name of Victoria had invited her. She said unfortunately, they had to spend the night there which apparently may have angered her husband. According to her report to the police, on her return Sunday morning, a bitter argument ensued between them which resulted to a scuffle. This challenge did not go down well with her husband who used his masculine might to beat her with an attempt to suffocate her with the insecticide sprayed onto her face. She said the spray onto her face led to her losing consciousness for some time.

When contacted at his detention point at the Lumley police station at about midnight on Tuesday, 21st September and the allegation of his wife put to him, Chief Tony declined to comment. However, a young man who identified himself as Chief Tonys Lawyer but refused to give his name told this reporter that his client was upset and stressed, and that he was not in any mood to comment on the matter, but noted that he was making frantic efforts to ensure the release of his client from police cell.

The police however say Chief Tonys detention was due to the gravity of the evidence against him, and that the wife has been issued a police medical report the result of which they are awaiting for consideration of any further action on the matter.
