25-Year-Old Girl Jailed For Pouring Hot Oil On Her Boyfriend Over His Refusal To Marry Her



A Senior Magistrates’ court in Abuja, yesterday, sentenced a 25-year-old woman, Victoria Alonge, to one-year in jail for pouring hot oil on her boyfriend, Roland Nna, over his refusal to marry her.

Victoria was arraigned by the police on a one-count charge of causing grievous hurt on her boyfriend and was subsequently sentenced without an option of fine after she admitted to committing the offence in court.

The Police Prosecutor, Cpl. Paschal Njoku, said Victoria went to Nna’s house at about 4:30 a.m. on the fateful day and poured hot oil on him while he was asleep, resulting in grievous hurt on his body. He said she was immediately arrested by the police, based on the report and confession to committing the crime before the police. Njoku said while in detention, Victoria threatened to inflict more harm on the victim.

In her defence, Victoria told the court that her estranged lover dated her for over four years and promised to marry her, only for him to change his mind after falling in love with another women in Abuja.
She said: “I did that to teach him a bitter lesson because he refused to marry me after dating me for over four years.
“He fooled me and my parents and ditched me after finding a new lover here in Abuja. I live in Lagos with my parents.”
