For Saying Bye-bye To Their Relationship, Lover Boy Bathes Girlfriend With Acid

An Ikpoba-Okha Area Customary Court sitting at Idogbo, Benin City has remanded a  22-year-old man, Cyril Okosun, in prison for allegedly bathing his girlfriend with acid.

The accused was alleged to have on April 19, 2013 at Dumez Road in the state metropolis poured acid on the face and body of the girl after she decided to quit their relationship.

When the case came up for mention, on Monday, counsel to the accused, Fidelis Oriafo, pleaded for his bail which was opposed by police prosecutor, Inspector Victor Ehiorobo, on the ground that the victim, Blessing Ikhumuhi, was still in a critical condition at the UBTH.

President of the court, Princess Esther Eweka, adjourned the case to July 23, 2013 for hearing.
