The mother of four told newsmen on Monday that they (family) consumed dinner together before the incident happened.

“My children, husband and I ate our dinner together on the fateful day before we went to bed.

“Isaac woke up around 3:00am, boiled water which he used to bathe me while I was sleeping in the bedroom.

“My scream alerted my children, who stormed my room as my body was already peeling.

“My children rushed me to the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, where I am receiving treatment.

“What baffled me was that we did not quarrel, no fight, no disagreement that would have warranted him to scald my skin,” she said.

The woman revealed that her husband has since absconded the house after inflicting grievous pains on her.

She added that her husband has run to his village in Owerri, Imo State.

The image maker of the police in the state, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said he has not got any information about the incident.

“I do not have a report of such, the case was not reported.

“The woman should go to any police station nearer to her to report,” he said.
