Woman pours hot water on husband for secretly marrying 5 wives

Owolati Laide, 45, has been sentenced to three months imprisonment by an FCT Area Court in Lugbe, on Thursday for pouring hot water on her husband.


According to a report by Vanguard, the Judge, Mr Gambo Garba, gave Laide an option of N5, 000 fine because of her six- month old baby. The convict had pleaded guilty and begged the court to tamper justice with mercy.


She said, “ Please sir, don’t send me to jail because of my six months old baby. I am so sorry for what I did; it was the devil that lured me into this act. I will not do it again. I just discovered that my husband has other five wives without my consent. When I confronted him, he started beating me and I had injuries all over my body. So, when I was washing my face with hot water, he came and started beating me. In the process the hot water poured on him. I did not intentionally pour hot water on the man, please sir, forgive me, ’’ she pleaded.


Owolati Tajudeem, her husband, had told the court that Laide got annoyed because his second wife who was pregnant came from Lagos without her consent, “She is aware of my marriage to other five wives,” he said.
