Single Lady Disfigures Nursing Mother with Hot Water in Lagos

A crazy single lady, identified as Esther Williams, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for pouring hot water on her neighbour, Mabel Enwongomfon–Umoh, a nursing mother.

Esther, who is in her late 30s, was said to have emptied a bucket of hot water on Mabel after they had a minor argument in their rented house on Thursday, December 24, 2015, around 8pm.

The incident left Mabel, who was still breastfeeding her two-month-old baby, with severe burns on many parts of her body, including her abdomen and two breasts.

This woman had not been able to breastfeed her baby since the incident happened.

The husband of the victim, Mr Umoh, told PUNCH that Esther attempted to escape after assaulting his wife, but he was able to apprehend her and she was handed over to the police.

Mr Umoh's wife, 27yrs old Mabel, who was evidently writhing in pains on the hospital bed when Punch visited, said it was a fight between some of her co-tenants in front of her room that led to the incident.

She explained that Esther, who poured the water on her, had nothing to do with the quarrel.

She said, “My neighbour’s brother and his girlfriend were fighting and they pushed themselves to the front of my door. When I could not cope with the disturbance again, I went outside to call the guy’s sister to come and separate them or make them leave our entrance.

“As I was going back to my room, Esther, who had nothing with the fight, confronted me that why I called the sister, saying I was interfering in something that did not concern me. I told her they were fighting in front of my room, but she pushed me. I was surprised because we never had a quarrel before then.

“That was how we started shouting on each other.”

She recalled that it was the noise from the fight that drew the attention of her husband who was in the room with their two children. She said her husband came out to separate them and they were already going back to their apartment when Esther ran into her room to carry the bucket of water and poured it on her.

She said, “I was in the front while my husband was behind me. Suddenly, she went into her room and came out with a bucket and poured the content on me.

“I have been in serious pain since then, and I have not been able to breastfeed my two-month-old baby, who is my second child.”

A police source said Esther had confessed to the crime and that she blamed the devil for the act.

“She would be charged to court,” the source said.
