Reportedly, a woman named Amaka Okonkwo is accused of scalding her tenant with with hot water mixed with pepper due to the tenant’s inability to meet the rent payment.
According to information gathered by POKENOSER, the tenant, Imabong William, had been issued a notice to vacate the premises as she was unable to meet the new rent charges that were imposed on the residents of the building. In response, she had requested some time to secure an alternative residence. However, it was during this period that her landlady allegedly assaulted her by pouring a mixture of hot water and pepper on her.
The incident unfolded on Thursday within the Enugwu-Ukwu community situated in the Njikoka Local Government Area of the state.
Community sources revealed that the victim, who hails from Akwa Ibom State, is currently receiving medical treatment at an undisclosed hospital after being rescued by her neighbors.
The landlady, Amaka, was subsequently apprehended by the police following a report filed by concerned neighbors at the Nimo police Station.
The Anambra State Commissioner for Women’s Affairs, Mrs. Ify Obinabo, personally visited the victim and conveyed that the victim recounted her situation. Apparently, the tenant was instructed to leave the premises due to her inability to meet the newly increased rent. Although she requested additional time to secure new accommodation, the incident occurred while she was washing her clothes. Allegedly, the landlady unexpectedly poured the scalding mixture on her from behind.
Obinabo expressed her strong dissatisfaction with the event and pledged to ensure justice for the victim. She stressed that the Anambra State Government takes a stern stance against any form of assault and emphasized that those found guilty will face the consequences. She further urged the public to promptly report crimes and misdemeanors through proper channels for swift intervention.
