Nigeria: Man Pours Boiled Water On His Wife

Share this:

We are left with this question, "what is happening in Nigeria?" Yesterday, we reported an incident that took place in Akwa Ibom state, where a man butchered his wife to death, and today, another man poured hot water on his wife.

The Police in Borno state have arrested a man by the name, Bukar Ali, for allegedly pouring boiled water on  his first wife's face, Falmata Bukar.

The Commissioner of Police, Damian Chukwu, told newsmen that the suspect was now in police custody in Maiduguri, the capital.

Chukwu said Ali was arrested on February 3 at Shuwari II Area of Maiduguri, after he had committed the act.

 “The suspect is married to two wives and had a misunderstanding with his first wife, who is nursing a 7-day- old baby".

“While she was preparing breakfast in the kitchen, the suspect poured hot water on her face, as a result of which she
sustained serious injuries,” he said.

The commissioner said that the victim was referred to the Specialist Hospital, Maiduguri, adding that investigation into
the case had begun.

The suspect, however, told journalists that he was trying to seize the hot water from Falmata when he mistakenly poured it on her face.

“She poured hot water on me, I tried to stop her from pouring it on me again, and incidentally it poured on her face and body.
We have been married for eight years and blessed with four children, my action was not intentional,” he said.
