(Go Down)
Wife opens up: ‘My hubby used hot iron,
screw driver to burn me’
For 36 year-old Mrs Mercy Nnamdi, the
woman whose one-year-old son was
allegedly killed by her husband recently in
Ago, Okota area of Lagos, over her
husband’s allegation that she was
sleeping with his father, life could never
have been more cruel.
This is because never in her wildest
imagination had she envisaged that a man
she had known almost all her life could
mete such inhuman treatment on her. As
you read this piece, Mercy is going
through excruciating pains in a private
hospital in Okota where doctors are
battling to save her life.
In fact, the once bubbling woman looks a
shadow of herself, as medical report
showed that she sustained a third degree
burns from the hot iron her husband of
two years used on her on Saturday, April 7
2012, which was exclusively reported by
Presently, the badly burnt woman
maintains a particular position, by
sleeping on her back. She wears an adult
pampers when she eases herself, with a
tissue paper by her side, with which she
cleans the fluid coming out from the
burns. Help, as gathered, was far from the
Imo state-born woman, as none of her
neighbours attempted to go and find out
what was happening when she was
desperately shouting for help. It was
learnt that their neighbours failed to
respond to her cries for help because it
has become a daily occurrence.
Crime Guard gathered also that on several
occasions, some of the neighbours invited
policemen from Ago division who
cautioned her husband after which he
was made to sign an undertaking never to
raise his hands on his wife.
Family sources hinted that signs of danger
in the marriage reared its ugly face early
after the two love birds fell in love 16
years ago, when Mary was barely 22 years
old. But she was apparently blinded by
love, hoping that her heartthrob would
outgrow his anger someday, which was
never to be.
Narrating what led to her being a patient
in the hospital, Mary stated, “It all
happened on a Saturday. I had prepared
boiled yam, awaiting the arrival of my
husband. After a long wait, I decided to
eat mine and left his on the table. He came
back few minutes to 11pm and went
straight to bed. Then at about 1 a.m.,
power was restored and he went to put
off the power generating set and
switched over to electricity.
After that, he started ironing his
customers’ clothes because he is a dry
I was later woken up by the cry of our
one-year-old baby who apparently needed
breast milk. All the while, we were
outside before power was restored.
Before retiring inside, I took my bath and
fetched water for him to have his.
The unforgettable night
Mrs Nnamdi at hospital
I was fast asleep when I was woken up by
a sharp pain on my back. I thought it was
a night mare. But when I opened my eyes,
lo and behold, my husband was planting
the hot iron he was using on the clothes
on me. Immediately I turned, he planted it
on my chest. When I raised my hand to
prevent it, he planted it on one of my
hands . By then I did not know what to do.
I started screaming and calling on my
neighbours for help. I raised my leg to
prevent him, again, he landed the hot iron
on me.
As he planted the hot iron hard on my
flesh, he would use a screw driver to peel
off the flesh. At a point, I became too weak
to shout. I begged him to stop but he
would not. Rather, he would ask me to tell
him how many times his father slept with
me. Even in pains, I begged him to listen to
himself and imagine what he was saying.
My response seemed to anger him the
more because he would plant it harder,
leaving it on my skin and at the same time,
asked me to tell him the truth.”
At this point, Crime Guard asked if she was
guilty of the claim. She grimaced and
replied, “How can that be? The father
already has a wife.” Pausing for a while
and staring at the ceiling , a position she
has been maintaining for several hours,
she continued, “ at that point, my baby
woke up and started crying . I begged him
to allow me breast feed the baby .
But before I could finish the statement, he
placed the hot iron on my breasts,
threatening to kill me if I shout. As he
lifted the iron, I saw that the flesh from my
breast had stuck to the iron surface. Again
he pressed it harder on my stomach,
leaving it there. I managed to turn, only for
the iron to land on my lap.
He told me there was no way of escape
for me that night, that members of his
gang were outside to take my corpse to
an unknown destination by the time he
finished with me. At that point, I knew
the end had come for me. I managed to
shout out for help with all the strength in
me but I could not.
At that point, he forcefully took Ebuka
from the bed and went outside. I decided
to go out because I did not know what he
would do next when he came back. I
cannot tell how I crawled out of the room.
But I found myself in the kitchen naked,
from where two men who saw me gave
me wrapper to cover myself.
“As I was there, trying to fathom how I
would escape from the compound,
somebody shouted that my husband had
killed my child. That was the last thing I
heard. I guessed I passed out because I
later opened my eyes and found myself in
the hospital.”
Residents of Number 3, Lambe street, Ago
confirmed to Crime Guard that they simply
refused to go to Mary’s rescue that night
because it was late and also that her shout
for help had been one too many .
One of them said, “ Since they started
living as husband and wife, there had
never been a time we did not experience
shout or crisis from their one-room
apartment. It is worse any time the man
came home drunk. We have even gone to
report to the police when it became too
much because we did not want a situation
where he would kill her one day and we
would be held responsible. Even at that, he
did not stop.
“Several times, the woman had wanted to
go back to her family but she wouldn’t.
Even her father-in-law had advised her to
leave when she travelled home last
December because he was tired of the
endless reports of his son battering his
daughter in-law.”
Weeping, after pausing for a while, Mary
recalled how he met her 37-year-old
husband. “ We knew each other since
1996. The relationship blossomed until
2010, when he went for introduction in
my village. I left my hair dressing skill and
moved in with him with the hope of
continuing later.”
But that was never to be as she revealed
that rather than continuing learning hair
dressing, she started selling pap, all in a
bid to make ends meet and apparently as
a demonstration of her love for Henry.
“He started showing his real colour later.
He started by refusing to drop money for
house keep and even when I begged him
to rent a shop for me, he didn’t. Rather,
he used the money to drink beer and
smoke . When I advised him against his
drinking and smoking habit, he would
flare up and the next thing would be to hit
me. Several times I have begged the police
to help me beg him not to raise his hands
on me but he wouldn’t”
Another predicament befalls Mary
Sadly, the anguished woman is faced with
another predicament which is her inability
to pay her medical bills. Already, Crime
Guard gathered that her bill had
amounted to N200,000 . Following this
development, the hospital is threatening
to stop treatment. Presently, the dressing
of the burns which ought to be done on
daily basis has been extended to once in
two or three days, as a daily dressing cost
s N10,000.
Sobbing uncontrollably and at the same
time questioning her choice of partner,
she revealed that her family members had
not shown up since the incident occurred,
as none of them, according to her, was
aware of the incident.
“My mother must not hear of this because
it will kill her. She is presently taking care
of my sister who just put to bed in Owerri.
I can not reach my relatives either because
my phone is not with me and I do not
have their phone numbers off hand.”
