A Woman ‘Janet Mohammed’ Bathes Husband With Hot Water Mixed With Pepper
One Mr Alaska Mohammed is receiving treatment at Minna General Hospital, Niger State after his housewife, Mrs Janet Mohammed bathed him with hot water mixed with pepper.
The incident happened at the home, Mandela area of Minna on Monday after a light brawl between the husband and wife.
According to Mohammed, the wife has refused to attend to the needs of their only 11-month-old son who is sick.
He said, “I have only called her attention to the boy’s ill health and that she should always be around him whenever I’m not around. Instead, she turned against me.”
Trouble started when she wanted to take the boy to church instead of a hospital. Mohammed said that the wife attacked him but was calmed by the neighbours.
“After my mother settled us, she told me that I will regret ever laying my hands on her but I ignored the threat. As I was watching television and taking my breakfast, she splashed the mixture on me,’’ he said.
Mohammed who is visibly in pain said that the case had been reported to the Tudunwada police division in the area.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Assistant Superintendent of Police Muhammad Abubakar, confirmed the incident, describing it as a criminal offence.
“We have commenced an investigation into the matter although the woman in question is on the run. Whenever we arrest her we will charge her accordingly,’’ he said.
