An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on Friday remanded a 35 year-old woman, Fausat Yakub, in prison for allegedly attacking her ex-husband, Tunde Idris, with a dangerous liquid substance.
The prosecutor, Cpl. Sanni Abdullahi, told the court that the accused poured a liquid substance suspected to be a chemical on the victim.
He said the incident which took place on 25 April, at Iyana Share, Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara, seriously affected Idris’s genitals.
He said the substance caused some degree of burns on other parts of the victim’s body.
The prosecutor said Idris was attacked when he took dinner to his two children, adding that he was lying critically ill in a hospital.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge, and Magistrate Mariam Mogaji ordered her to be remanded in prison.
She adjourned the case to May 16, for mention.
