Rivers police arrest woman for pouring hot water on husband

The Rivers State Police Command said its men have arrested a woman, Godslove Olakada, who poured hot water on her husband, Olakada Ejire, following a domestic dispute in Agbonchia community in Eleme Local Government Area of the state.

Earlier, the woman had accused her husband, Olakada Ejire, who hails from Eleme LGA of not giving her N15,000 shared between them and their children from the host community dividends, leading to a heated argument.

An eyewitness said Olakada, a mother of two angered by the development took hot water and bath the man on his face and attempted to escape.

The source who pleaded anonymity stated, “Thereafter she took the man’s Automated Teller Machine and attempted to flee with it but youths in the area handed her over to the police.

This came less than a week after a woman, Hope Nwala, bathed her husband with hot groundnut oil while he was asleep, following a disagreement in Okehi, Etche LGA of the state.

The spokesperson for the state Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, in a statement issued on Monday morning, confirmed the incident, saying the woman is being detained.

The statement titled ‘A Case of Grievous Harm’ was made available to newsmen in Port Harcourt.

It reads, “The Rivers state police, operatives, through credible intelligence, have arrested one Godslove Olakada (f) from Agbonchia Eleme on Saturday, 14/10/2023 at about 20:30hrs for pouring hot water on her husband, one Olakada Ejire (m).

“He was rushed to Famo Hospital at Aleto Eleme for treatment. The cause was domestic family issues.

Iringe-Koko added that an investigation has commenced on the matter.

“An investigation has commenced to get to the root of the matter,” the PPRO stated.

She urged members of the public to promptly report distress situations to the police.
