Dear men, if you have the slightest clue that your wife or anybody in her family is using charms to tire you to love her by force, just send such a woman out of your house immediately. #ThankMeLater
Here this woman’s confession after destroying her husband:
“The woman who gave me a substance told me that it was a charm meant to endear my husband to me. I never knew that what she gave me was acid. All I was trying to do was to keep my husband’s love so that he would not think of leaving me, because I know that my marriage with any other man would not endure because of my barrenness.”
Those were the words of 38yrs Remi Agunbiade, a resident of Ibadan, Oyo State, after she was arrested by police over attempt to kill her husband, Olawale Shola, by pouring acid on him on January 27, 2016.
“When I had my first pregnancy, he said that his wife was also pregnant with their third child, asking me to abort mine, which I did. He used to schedule his stay between the two of us. We used to quarrel often and this got me worried because I knew that if he left me, I would not be able to have another steady relationship since no man would be willing to live with a barren woman.
“I met a lady called Iya Azeez at a provision stall at Agbeni market, Ibadan. During our discussion, I intimated her of my challenges and said that I didn’t want to leave my husband. She replied that I would have to resolve the issue through self-help.
I asked for assistance to stop further quarrels between me and my husband and she said she would help me get water that had been prayed into from an Alfa, stating that all I would need to do is to sprinkle it on my husband, after which he would love me without holding anything back. She gave me a bottle containing the liquid substance on Tuesday, January 26.
“On Wednesday morning, my husband, Shola, was lying down when I took the bottle and poured the content on his head. He cried in agony from sleep and I also shouted and ran out. But he followed me and caught up with me beside the house next to ours.
“He asked people to help him hold me so that I would not run away. By then, a huge crowd had gathered and it was then they started saying that it was acid that I poured him. Some of the liquid got rubbed on my body when he held me, giving me some burns.”
The woman claimed that she did not know the residence of the friend who gave her the purported bottle of liquid, saying that she only met the lady about two months ago.
“My action was because I didn’t want to have another husband.”
The husband who is now on admission in a hospital, said, “On Wednesday, I was lying down, waiting for a friend. Suddenly, I felt a warm liquid on me. As I opened my eyes, I saw as she was about to run out and I went after her. I raised the alarm and people came. I told them that she had already threatened that she would do an unforgettable thing to me. That was how I was rushed to the hospital.”
Police PRO in Oyo State, DSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the woman would be charged to court.
