Woman bathed with acid after accepting the marriage proposal of her lover who is married.

Ogochukwu Nwosu, 25, is in a critical condition at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, after she was bathed with substance suspected to be acid at Ilasa bus stop, on the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, by a man who allegedly dropped from a motorcycle.

Nwosu, who sustained burns on her face, neck, breasts, among other parts of her body, was reportedly rushed to LUTH by passersby.  She is accusing one Mrs. Chidi, the wife of the man who had proposed marriage to her, as the culprit.

She alleged 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.
Nwosu’s brother, Peter, said he recorded a part of the conversation with Mrs. Chidi on his mobile phone.  Peter said he reported the incident at the Itire Police Division, adding that Mrs. Chidi was arrested and granted bail.

Counsel to the victim, Louis Nwaugbala and Anthony Obi, have petitioned the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Force Headquarters, Abuja, over the matter. The petition alleged that Mrs. Chidi threatened to wreak havoc before December 2016, the purported month of the traditional marriage between Mr. Chidi and Nwosu.

It added that Ogochukwu was persuaded against reporting the threat to the police by Mr. Chidi, who allegedly promised to persuade his wife to accept the union. Nwaugbala, Nwosu’s lawyer, said justice must be served in the case, adding that Nwosu must be flown abroad for plastic surgery by the suspect and her husband.

“That is the only thing that can assuage the damage presently done to her. She should be flown abroad for treatment,” he added. The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, explaining that Mrs. Chidi was released on bail because she could not be directly linked to the attack.
