A 21-year-old husband, Innocent Akpan of Kado village, Abuja, was on Monday arraigned before a Senior Magistrates’ Court for pouring hot water on his wife.
Police prosecutor Clement Egwu told the court that on Aug. 29, Mrs Idongesit Sunday, the wife of the accused, reported the case to the Life Camp Police Station.
Egwu said the accused poured hot water, which contained pepper, on the wife because of a quarrel they had when the wife found out that her husband was having a sexual relationship with their neighbour.
Egwu further told the court that the wife sustained serious injuries as a result of the incident, and had since been hospitalised.
He said the accused was charged with causing grievous hurt and adultery contrary to provisions of Sections 247 and 387 of the Penal Code.
The accused pleaded guilty, saying that it was the work of the Devil.
Following his plea, the prosecutor urged the court to defer the sentence to Sept. 24 to watch the victim’s response to treatment.
Senior Magistrate Abdullahi Illelah adjourned the case to Sept. 24.

What kinda argument would drive someone to commit such a brutal act. Husband cheated on the wife, yet he poured peppery hot water on the wife. WTH! I guess the man can't admit his faults
