A suspect, Samson Igbinomewahin, 47, was on Monday arraigned at an Ebute Metta Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for allegedly pouring acid on his wife, Mrs. Susan Jeremiah, 31.


Jeremiah, a corporal in the Special Fraud Unit of the Nigeria Police in Ikoyi, Lagos, was brought to court with one side of her body disfigured by the acid attack.


Igbinomewahin was charged with attempted murder. The charge sheet read in part that Igbinomewahin “on the 9th of March, 2011, at block 8, room 31, Obalende Police Barrack, Lagos…did unlawfully attempt to kill Susan Jeremiah by pouring acid substance on her body and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 320 (1) of the Criminal Code Cap 17 Vol. II Laws of Lagos State 2003.”


The Magistrate, Mrs. Helen Omisore, had earlier asked Igbinomewahin if he wanted to be tried at either the magistrate or higher court before his plea was taken.


The suspect, who chose to be tried in the magistrate court, thereafter pleaded not guilty.


Igbinomewahin’s lawyer, Mr. Olatunde Kolawole, urged the court to grant him bail, saying the issue was “a domestic accident.” Besides, he told the court that the suspect had been in custody for more than a month.


At this point, Igbinomewahin interrupted the court proceeding by telling his lawyer that he had been detained for more than two months.


The magistrate shouted the suspect down and asked the court orderly to stand beside him in order to prevent further interruption.


But the victim’s lawyer, Mr. Lucky Oizimende , objected the bail application. He told the court that Jeremiah was still in intensive care, adding that, “what would stop him from going back to kill her?”


PUNCH METRO gathered that Igbinomewahin and his wife, whom he married in 2009, had been having running battles on his insistence that his wife should finance his proposed trip to Malaysia.


As part of the plan, our correspondent gathered that the suspect asked his wife to sell off her landed property and use the proceeds to facilitate his supposed trip.


Igbinomewahin was said to have promised his wife that she would join him when he settled down in Malaysia. PUNCH METRO, however, learnt that Jeremiah was skeptical about this arrangement.


Before the incident, our correspondent learnt that Jeremiah had already filed for divorce and the matter was still pending in another court.


As a result of the pending suit, the couple no longer live together. But the marriage is blessed with a child.


Police investigation revealed that on the fateful day, the suspect allegedly visited his estranged wife and brought a polythene bag into her apartment at police barracks, Obalende, and told his wife that it contained their baby’s food. It was learnt that when Jeremiah saw the content, she became suspicious and fled.


Igbinomewahin allegedly ran after her and poured the content in the polythene bag on her through the window.


The magistrate however adjourned ruling on the bail application till April 29, 2011, and ordered the suspect to be remanded in Ikoyi Prisons.

This is why I said that the worse is yet to be heard in Naija. How can such a foolish lazy worthless man not be fed to the lions in the zoo? A man so lazy that he can't afford his own trip. How can he make it any where at all. He has a place in hell starting from Naija prison. I wish the innocent lady all the best.

this fool is not even ashamed to ask of money from his wife.why not postpone your travelling trip and see to it that you struggle on how to raise the money..?look at what you did to that lady..?what if she had died..?dont the lady have brothers..?they should also find a way to harm him back.i will destroy the life of any man that will carry out such evil on my sisters/relative or even a close friend.i will not rest till he faces my own law of karma.he should be sentence to 25yrs jail term with hard labour and 7yrs probation.he should be fed in prison once in every 4days,bath once in a month,brought to lime light and beaten up mercilessly once in every 2wks coupled with his hard labour.psychopathic maniac,that way when he is out he will never raise his voice again on any woman let alone raising his hand or using items on them.he will be the one to apologise even when the lady is at fault.this man need to be dealt with harshly and decisively.how i wish i was the judge of the case he would have cursed the day he evolved in planet earth.mentally impoverished human being.
