25-Year-Old Woman Bathed With Acid After Accepting Marriage Proposal From Married Lover

Ogochukwu Nwosu,  a 25-year-old woman is in  critical condition at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, Surulere, Lagos State, after she was bathed with substance suspected to be acid,
Sources learnt that Ogochukwu was at Ilasa bus stop, on the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, when a man allegedly dropped from a motorcycle and poured acid on her fleeing the scene.
She sustained burns on her face, neck, breasts, among other parts of her body, and was reportedly rushed to LUTH by passersby.
Ogochukwu on her hospital bed, accused one Mrs. Chidi, the wife of the man who had proposed marriage to her, as the culprit alleging that Mrs. Chidi had been threatening her on the telephone and through text messages immediately she learnt of her husband’s intention to marry her (Ogochukwu).
She said she had however turned down Mr. Chidi’s proposal because he was married, adding that the latter persisted.
Counsel to the victim, Louis Nwaugbala and Anthony Obi, had already petitioned the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Force Headquarters, Abuja, over the matter.
A copy of the petition, obtained by PUNCH correspondent, read in part, “Sometime in 2012, one Mr. Chidi approached our client and started making advances to her and promised to marry her. But she vehemently refused the proposal. She told him that she was not interested in the marriage since he was already married.
“Upon Mr. Chidi’s insistence of wanting to marry our client and even making preparations to visit our client’s family to formalise the marriage rites, our client advised Mr. Chidi to inform his wife of his plans to take our client as his second wife, since both of them will be cohabiting in the same house.
“Immediately Mr. Chidi made his plans known to his wife, all hell broke loose as Mrs. Chidi started calling and persistently threatening our client’s life through phone calls, text and Whatsapp messages.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident.
