A man simply identified as Oyinkro Miebode, has been left with burns and injuries sustains after his wife emptied a pot of hot water on him while he was sleeping at their home along INEC Road, Kpansia, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
According to reports, on June 3, 2020, trouble started on the evening of the previous day, when the man, Oyinkro slapped his wife, Maureen, for raining insults on him because he came too early to meet her somewhere in town.
They had agreed to meet at 8pm, but because he closed early from work and got a lift from his boss, he got to their agreed meeting place by 7pm.
While hanging around till it is 8pm, he saw Maureen walking past him, so he ran to her to notify her of his presence, but instead, she got angry that he came earlier than they agreed.
According to him: “In shock, I then asked why she was angry that I came early. That was when she started accusing me of monitoring her. She insulted me till we got home.
I thought that we could settle the matter at home but it was hell. So out of anger, I gave her two warning slaps and instructed her to go to the bedroom and sleep.
At that point, a friend called me to come to his place for a private birthday party, and unfortunately, I came back home at about 1 am. So I was sleeping on the sofa in my living room when suddenly she bathed me with hot water.”
The wife fled home immediately but has been calling and asking the family for forgiveness, noting that it was the devil that pushed her.
