Kano State Police Command has arrested Aisha Ali, who poured boiling water on her husband’s private part in protest against his plans to take a second wife.
The incident occurred on Thursday, July 11, at Fayen-Fayen village, Danbatta local government area of the state. Aisha fled after commiting the offence while Aliyu Ibrahim was rushed to Dambatta General Hospital where he is currently receiving treatment.
Spokesman of the command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed on Monday, that the runaway wife was arrested at her hideout at Babura local government area of Jigawa State and is cooling her feet at police headquarters.
Mr Haruna said that on receipt of the case, the state’s Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu swiftly raised a team of Operation Puff Adder who tracked down and arrested the suspect from her hideout.
He said the CP had ordered that the case be transferred to State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department for discreet investigation and the suspect would soon be charged to court for prosecution.
“The command is using this medium to call on the good and law-abiding citizens of the state to always promptly report any incident to the nearest police station without delay. This will assist in immediate arrest, investigation and diligent prosecution of the culprit, please,” he appealed.
Speaking to newsmen after being paraded at the police command, the suspect said she did not intend to pour the boiling water on her husband, but admitted to have committed the offence.
She asked for forgiveness and expressed support to the husband over his plan to take a second wife.
