Imo: Police Arrests 21 Year-old Notorious Armed Robber, Recover Ammunition In Alaba Market - Owerri

A US-based Nigerian bodybuilder, Michael Chidozie, has died weeks after his wife shot him multiple times at their apartment in Houston, Texas.

The 26-year-old died last week after his wife Keaiirra Shavoiyae Chidozie, 28, shot him four times in front of their kids in their home on March 21, 2024. National Daily gathered that the deceased was rushed to Ben Taub Hospital after police found him with gunshot wounds and his wife in panic holding their two kids, aged three and two.

Chidozie lingered on life support as his family prayed for his recovery, but he suffered a devastating spinal injury and died of complications 18 days later.

According to the report, Keaiirra was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after the shooting, and her charges have not been upgraded since his death.

She claimed to have shot Chidozie in self-defense as she feared for her life during the argument when he followed her into their bedroom. It's unclear what the argument was over.
