A furious wife has poured hot oil on her husband for allegedly buying the phone as a valentine’s gift to his girlfriend in Imo State.
The victim, Michael, is in critical condition at a public hospital in Owerri, while the suspect (names withheld) is being quizzed by the Police.
A police source said the matter was reported by the victim’s friend, Emma :” Emma had reported that his friend, Michael, called him to come for his rescue as he was in a critical condition. He said when he arrived at Michael’s home, he met him shivering and with fire burns on his back.

When he inquired what the problem was, his friend’s wife told him that she picked his phone while a lady called and the lady did not know who picked the call and started praying for her husband that she loved the phone as it was her dreamed phone.
” We are investigating to know if the woman who made the call was really the victim’s girlfriend or whether it was a mistake. But whether she is really Michael’s girlfriend, Michael’s wife has no right to attempt to take another Pearson’s life. Michael has not been able to speak, because the fire burns were too painful.
People should not take laws into their hands. Why jungle justice when they would resolve the crisis amicably. The irony was that the woman did not ask her husband any question, whether he would deny it or own up. The man was told his offence in the hospital”.
