Operatives of the Ondo State Police Command have apprehended a 39-year-old food vendor, Esther Godwin, for attacking and pouring hot water on a nursing mother, Endurance Samuel, allegedly in response to rumours of an illicit affair with her husband.

The incident took place in Olofin community of Idanre, in the Idanre Local Government Area of the state.

According to sources in the community, the suspect, had contacted Endurance via phone to come for the debt of palm oil owed her by her husband, Sunday Godwin.

Unaware of the brewing animosity, Endurance promptly made her way to Esther’s residence, in the hope of receiving the palm oil owed her.

However, upon her arrival, Endurance was met with a horrifying attack as Esther, who was fueled by suspicions and allegations of infidelity, allegedly poured hot water on her, causing severe burns.

The victim, who sustained injuries from the scalding water, was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital, where she received treatment for the severe burns

Narrating how the incident happened, Endurance, explained that “She (Esther) called me from where I was learning tailoring to come and collect the palm oil her husband is owing me. I also work as a labourer for some farmers in the town.

”I rushed out of my oga’s shop excitedly to the place, not knowing that the call was just to lure me to her own shop where she was selling food, to pour hot water on me for the offence I did not commit.”

Meanwhile, the suspect’s husband, denied having a relationship with Endurance and claimed that he merely hired her as a farm labour.

“I was surprised by this development and have been paying for the victim’s treatment at the hospital since the incident occurred.”
