Mrs Laide has been arraigned at the FCT area court in Lugbe, Abuja for pouring hot water on her husband.
The house wife who pleaded guilty begged the court to show her mercy that it wasn’t intentional. 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 devi 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”.
Her husband, Mr Owolabi Tajudeem told the court that she was aware of his marriage to the other five wives but got annoyed because his second wife who was pregnant came from Lagos without her consent.
