A jilted lover who has been identified as Paul has been arrested alongside 3 other people with whom he connived to bathe his 23-year-old ex-girlfriend, Rosemary with acid. According to reports, the estranged boyfriend did this because she had dared to leave him.
The incident reportedly took place on the 3rd of June, 2015 in Surulere after the victim was deceived with a fake catering contract. Rosemary while recounting her experience said,
In the afternoon of that fateful day, I was at work when a private number called me at about 4pm and it was a lady who spoke, telling me that she wanted me to come and bake cake for her.She said she would call back at about evening time and we would see. So, when I got home, at about 8.30pm, she called again and said I should come to Surulere, and she would be in a red car.
I believed her and left home to see the lady. I was wearing a red blouse too. When I got to the spot, I did not see any red car and she was not calling back. Suddenly, I noticed someone drew my hair from behind and suddenly poured acid on my face down to my waist.
Rosemary and Paul were formerly lovers but parted ways last year. Pertaining to the relationship she had with Paul, she said,
I did not know his plans. I left him because he did not have a stable job and he was not a straight forward man. Instead of me to remain with him and for him to keep deceiving me I decided to move on with my life
Sources say the victim is receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) while the evildoers including the Victim’s ex have been transferred to the Criminal investigations Department in Panti, Yaba for interrogations.
