A statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command, ASP Ndukwe Ekea, says Opoku’s arrest was sequel to a petition received at the command’s headquarters on July 10 from Women Aid Collective (WACOL), Enugu that he allegedly committed the act on June 23 following a misunderstanding between the lovers.
”Preliminary investigation reveals that the lovers have been together for over three (3) years with three (3) children, but are yet to be customarily or otherwise married. It further shows that they had misunderstanding on the said date, which led to the suspect pouring hot water, intended for the preparation of pap, all over the victim’s breasts. This caused her grievous bodily harm” the statement read
