According to PUNCH:
Ajayi later learnt that his elder sister had also invited Oriwoh, who she (the sister) thought was still his lover. On the fateful day, Ajayi and Ogechi were said to be asleep in a room in the house, while they heated water. The duo were said to have heated the water, so they could mix it with ordinary water for bathing.
The matter was said to have been reported at the Owutu Police Division, and Oriwoh was arrested. The victims were thereafter rushed to the General Hospital, Ikorodu for treatment.
Monday [Aug 10], when PUNCH visited Ajayi at the hospital, he showed reporters the severe burns on his back and face, said he broke the relationship because of Oriwoh’s violent attitude, and her extreme demands. He said, “It is true that we both dated. While we were in the relationship, I spent and sacrificed so much, but I did not find real love in her. That was why I quit the relationship.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Patricia Amadin, confirmed the arrest. She added that investigation was ongoing on the matter. The matter had been transferred from the division to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Panti, Yaba.
She said, “Police operatives rushed to the scene, and the victims, who sustained severe burns, were rushed to the hospital for treatment. The attacker has been arrested and taken into custody.”
