Jamila Musa, 26, who was attacked with acid in her home on May 30, 2016, has accused her boyfriend’s wife for her ordeal.
According to The Nation, Jamila who works with Flour Mills, Nigeria, said she heard a familiar voice, her boyfriend’s wife’s brother at her door, saying he had a message from her boyfriend and that was why she opened the door.
“A minute to 10 pm on Sunday, I was sleeping in my room when I heard a knock on my door. I didn’t recognise the voice immediately but now I am sure of the voice. He said my boyfriend sent him to give me a message. My boyfriend usually sends motorcycle operators to me so I assumed he was the one that sent this one and as I was trying to open the door, he poured the acid on my face. I rushed outside, I could not shout for about five minutes but when I started shouting, my neighbours gathered and washed my face with soap; they applied honey and pap to it before rushing me to the hospital.
“I suspect his wife sent someone to attack me, I did not know at first that he was married but when I realised it, I tried to cut him off. I only knew that he was married when his wife started sending me text messages, insulting and threatening me, I even told him that I was going to report her to the police but he asked me to leave her alone.
“I have reported to the Zuba police station and they said they will arrest my boyfriend, his wife and her brother.”
