A 37- year-old woman Joy Sunday has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for pouring hot water on the face of another woman Justina Ameh who accused her of sleeping with her husband.
A statement issued by the command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Agbado divisional headquarters by the elder sister of the victim, one Kelechi Samuel, who reported that she went for vigil at the Spring of Life Global Ministry situated at Giwa area of Agbado with her younger sister when the suspect came into the church with a container of hot water and poured it on her sister’s face thereby causing her a grievous harm.
He said the woman stated further that while she was trying to hold the suspect, she was also stabbed on her left hand by the same suspect.
He added that following the report, police officers were mobilised and the suspect, a mother of two, was arrested.
According to Oyeyemi, “on interrogation, the suspect, Joy Sunday explained that the victim has been accusing her of sleeping with her husband for quite some time now, and all efforts to disabuse her mind from it proved abortive.
“On that fateful day, while they were in the church, the victim came as usual and started raining curses on her. While she tried to walk away from her, the victim pulled her back with her cloth and tore the cloth.
“It was that annoyance that made her go home and boiled water which she brought back to the church and poured it on the victim’s face.”
