A woman who allegedly poured hot water on her husbands mistress has been arrested by the Police.
According to the Ogun State Police Command, one Joy Sunday, a mother of two is being held for pouring hot water on another woman she accused of dating her husband.
DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Command’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), said that Mrs Sunday, aged 37, was arrested by men of the Command after she poured hot water on the face of the other woman, Justina Ameh.
She accused her of sleeping with her husband.
He said that the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Agbado divisional headquarters by the elder sister of the victim, one Kelechi Samuel.
‘‘The sister of the victim reported that they went for vigil at the Spring of Life Global Ministry; situated at Giwa area of Agbado with her younger sister. The suspect came into the church with a container of hot water and poured it on her sister’s face; thereby causing her grievous harm,” Oyeyemi explained.
The complainant narrated that while she was trying to hold the suspect; she was also stabbed on her left hand by the suspect.
Oyeyemi said that upon receiving the report, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Agbado division; CSP Kehinde Kuranga, sent his men to the scene, where the suspect was arrested.
He said that during interrogation, the victim explained that the suspect had been accusing her of sleeping with her husband for quite some time now, and she had explained to her that she was wrongly accusing her.
“On that fateful day, while they were in the church; the suspect came as usual and started raining curses on her. But as she tried to walk away from her; the victim tore her cloth in the process of pulling her back. It was that annoyance that made her to go home to boil water; which she brought back to the church and poured it on the victim’s face.
“When asked whether or not she was dating the victim’s husband, the victim said she can swear with anything that there is nothing between her and the victim’s husband,’’ he said.
The Commissioner of Police (CP) Edward Ajogun had directed that the case be properly investigated; with a view to charging it to court as soon as possible.
