A housewife at Gbagidi, Ijanikin area of Lagos State reportedly bathed her husband with a bowl of hot water.
The woman identified as Iya Deborah had complained bitterly after her husband gave her N700, out of the N800 he had, to prepare yam and sauce breakfast for the family. She bought the yam, but emptied the boiling water on her husband, who was fiddling with his phone in the sitting room, waiting for his meal.

A close neighbor disclosed that;
I was in front of the compound when I heard the victim screaming and his wife running out of the compound as if the devil was chasing her. Neighbours who were still in the compound ran into their apartment only to see him in pains.
When we asked him what happened, he said his wife poured hot water on him. We bought raw eggs and honey which we poured on the burns, before taking him to the hospital.
According to Vanguard news, the angry neighbours later caught Iya Deborah, and dragged her to the hospital.
When newsmen visited the hospital, he was still writhing in pains from burns and blisters on his chest, face, right hand, and lap.
Feeling a lot more remorseful, Iya Deborah, who is currently undergoing interrogation at Ijanikin Police Divisional Headquarters, said:
I don’t know what came over me; it is the devil’s handiwork.
Vanguard gathered that the suspect once attacked a neighbour in their former compound with hot groundnut oil.
