Wife Bathes Husband With Hot Water, Pepper
A 32-year-old housewife, Mrs Rebecca Efeitima, of Amukpe area, in Sapele, Delta State on poured hot water mixed with pepper on her husband, a 43 year-old-man, Monday Efeitima, over what neighbours described as her ‘usual behaviour’
Monday told our source that he did not quarrel with his wife and her initial intention was to poison him and when she did not succeed, she decided to disfigure him.
The victim said: “Trouble started on Tuesday. I can’t remember quarrelling with her but I had just sat down after returning from work when she brought me food to eat. It was unusual from her. “Most times, if I come from work I have to practically beg or cajole her for food before she will bring it. I was suspicious, so I refuse to eat the food.
“However, to please her, I threw away the food when she went to take her bath and when she came back, she sat with me and was asking if I was feeling anything, I told her no.She then went outside, got a pot of hot water, added pepper and when I was sleeping she poured the water on me.”
