A pregnant woman, Mrs Mercy Chintua, has been arrested by the operatives of Enugu State Police Command for pouring hot water on her neighbour, whom she claimed spied on her while she was taking her bath.
The suspect, who resides at Akwuke, Awkunanaw axis of Enugu State, poured hot water on the victim, Emmanuel Anyebe, for allegedly peeping on her while she was having her bath on February 23.
Confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu said: “Mercy poured hot water on the victim as he was going to bath. She alleged that the victim was peeping into the bathroom while having her bath.
“The hot water inflicted serious body burns on the victim. As a result of the injuries sustained from the act, he was unconscious and was rushed to a nearby hospital but the victim has denied the allegation of peeping on the woman during bath.
“The suspect has, however, pleaded for leniency as she ascribed her actions to demonic spirit in her.”
