A pregnant woman, Mrs Mercy Chintua, has been arrested by the operatives of Enugu State Police Command over allegation of assault on her neighbour, whom she said spied on her while she was taking her bath.
The suspect, who resides at Akwuke, Awkunanaw axis of Enugu State, had allegedly poured hot water on the victim, Emmanuel Anyebe, for allegedly peeping on her while she was having her bath on February 23.
Confirming the incident, Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu said: “Mercy poured hot water on the victim as he was going to bath. She alleged that the victim was peeping into the bathroom while having her bath”.
“The hot water inflicted serious body burns on the victim. As a result of the injuries sustained from the act, he was unconscious and was rushed to a nearby hospital.
The victim has denied ever peeping on the woman during bath. The suspect has, however, pleaded for leniency as she ascribed her actions to demonic spirit in her.
