AFIESERE community in Ughelli North Local Government Area, Delta State was yesterday thrown into confusion as a house wife, Mrs Finegirl Agofure allegedly poured hot water on her husband, Mr John Agofure over a minor disagreement.
The victim who is the Youth President of Ogbonwan community is receiving medication on the serious burnt injuries he had all over his body in Oveto clinic, a private hospital in the Afiesre community.
Narrating his ordeal to newsmen,Â Agofure disclosed that he had a misunderstanding with his wife, Finegirl the previous day over her failure to prepare supper for the family.
He said he had given the wife a slap on her face when she told him that she threw away the food after giving part of it to the children.
According to Agofure, the wife, immediately after the ensuing fracas, took their four children to her mother in Ofuoma, a neighbouring community and refused to pass the night in the family house.
He said the wife resurfaced in the early hours of yesterday and lamented that he was having a discussion with a fellow community leader when she suddenly poured the hot water on him and fled the community.
Describing the dastardly act as shocking and unexpected of a house wife, an eye witness, Mr Charles Ikoko alleged that when he contacted Agofureâ€™s mother_in law at Ofuoma, she told him that her daughter merely revenged the slap she from her husband.
