Joy Sunday, a 37-year-old single mother of two, was arrested by men from the Ogun State Police Command for pouring hot water on the face of another woman, Justina Ameh, after accusing her of sleeping with her husband.
According to a statement issued by the state police command’s spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the suspect was apprehended following a report lodged at Agbado divisional headquarters by the victim’s elder sister, Kelechi Samuel.
Oyeyemi stated Samuel stated that she went to the Spring of Life Global Ministry in the Giwa area of Agbado with her younger sister for a vigil when the suspect entered the church with a container of hot water and poured it on her sister’s face, causing her great harm.
She went on to say that while she was attempting to restrain the suspect, she was stabbed on the left hand by the same suspect.
Following the report, CSP Kehinde Kuranga, DPO Agbado division, dispatched his men to the scene, where the suspect was promptly apprehended.
” During questioning, the suspect, Joy Sunday, stated that the victim has been accusing her of sleeping with her husband for quite some time now, and all attempts to disabuse her of this belief have been futile.
On that fateful day, while they were in church, the victim appeared as usual and began cursing her.
As she attempted to walk away from her, the victim drew her back with her cloth and tore it. That irritability drove her to go home and boil water, which she brought back to the church and poured on the victim’s face.
When asked if she is dating the victim’s husband, the suspect replied, “I can swear with anything that there is nothing between me and the victim’s husband.” According to Abimbola
