A 16-year- old lover girl, identified as Maureen (surname withheld) in Emede Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State at the weekend, allegedly bathed her boyfriend with acid for cheating on her in the last three months of their relationship.
Reports said the girl, now in the police net in the community, upon interrogation by the police confessed to the crime, saying that her boyfriend violated the oath they took together.
It was reliably gathered that the victim was caught while making love to another girl right in a hotel within the community, a situation, when the suspect was informed about it, raced to the hotel where she attacked him with acid water.
DSP Celestina Kalu, police public relations officer in the state, who confirmed the incident, disclosed that the suspect claimed she was angered by the violation of their oath by the victim.
“I was determined to teach my boyfriend a lesson. So I went into my father’s car park where I picked an acid water to teach him a bitter lesson,” he said.
Sources said the acid water was allegedly poured on the victim’s penis, a situation that may render him impotent. But DSP Kalu said the victim was admitted into a private hospital where he is currently being treated, adding that the suspect would be charged to court on completion of investigation.
