Wife bathes husband with boiling water in Niger State

51

A housewife, Amina Abashe, has allegedly poured boiling water on her husband, Shehu Abdullahi, after a disagreement over her frequent calls to other men.

The couple, who are based in Kontagora LGA of Niger State, reportedly got married two months before the incident.

The husband, who spoke with the press from his hospital bed at the General Hospital, Kontagoro, said the incident happened on Tuesday.

He said he married Miss Abashe after the death of his former wife.
According to the report, the wife first attempted to stab him to death but was able to seize the knife from her.

She, however, rushed to take the boiling water and pour it on him.
Mr Abdullahi further explained that two months after their marriage, the wife has refused to move to his house, forcing him to complain to her parents.

According to him, on Tuesday evening, the day the incident happened, his wife called him on the phone to come to their house, and right there, she told him that she was no longer interested in the marriage.

He said the wife claimed to have gotten another lover who was willing to pay him back his dowry.

He alleged that at that same venue, she was on the phone with a man suspected to be her boyfriend.

“At that point, I became angry and attempted to seize the phone from her and she took a knife to stab me but I was able to collect the knife from her,” Mr Abdullahi added.

Meanwhile, efforts to get the reaction of the state’s police spokesman, Wasiu Abiodun, were not successful.
