A 25-year-old caterer identified as Rosemary Nnaife, who was allegedly bathed with acid by her ex-lover in the Lawanson, Surulere area of Lagos State, has demanded the prosecution of the suspect, identified only as Paul.
The Delta State indigene, whose face had been scarred by the acid, said since the incident, Paul had yet to be prosecuted. The victim explained that she had dated Paul for four years before the relationship ended due to abuse and violence.
She said she got into another relationship, which did not go down well with the suspect, who allegedly began sending threat messages to her and her new boyfriend.
The threat allegedly culminated in an acid bath after she was tricked out of her residence in the Abaranje, Ikotun area of the state.
Nnaife said she was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Surulere, by sympathisers, while Paul was arrested by policemen from the Itire division.
She said although the Directorate of Public Prosecutions ordered that the suspect be tried at the Lagos State High Court, the case was still pending.
