Carpenter, 32, pours acid on his ex-girlfriend and the guy who snatched her from him
Onyekachi Agu, a 32-year-old carpenter, was given a seven-year prison term for pouring acid on his ex-girlfriend Aishat Adefarati and her new boyfriend Monsuru Ahmed.
According to reports, Agu committed the crime in order to cope with the grief of his lover’s abandonment for another man when he ran out of money.
He is accused of following them as they left the restaurant, dousing them in acid, then hastily fleeing the scene, leaving them to their fate.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Justice Oyindamola Ogala insisted that the prosecution establish the elements of Agu’s single-count severe harm accusation.
According to Mrs. Ogala, Agu’s attempt to retract his confessional declaration was a ruse to avoid punishment.
She alleged that the defendant didn’t bring his brother, who he claimed to have been with the day of the incident, to court.
