A 25-year-old woman, Victoria Alonge, has been sentenced to one-year in jail for pouring hot oil on her boyfriend, Roland Nna, over his refusal to marry her.

Senior Magistrate, Omolola Akindele, summarily sentenced Alonge without an option of fine after the convict admitted, yesterday, to committing the offence at a Karu Senior Magistrates’ court.

Alonge was arraigned by the police on a one-count charge of causing grievous hurt on Nna, her boyfriend, who lives in Kurudu, Abuja.

The Police Prosecutor, Corporal Paschal Njoku, had earlier told the court that Nna reported the incident at Kurudu Police Station on August 11.

Njoku said Alonge went to Nna’s house at about 4:30 a.m. on the fateful day and poured hot oil on him while he was asleep, resulting in grievous hurt to his body.

He said she was immediately arrested by the police, based on the report and confession to committing the crime before the police. But while in detention, Alonge threatened to inflict more harm on the victim.

The prosecutor urged the court to summarily punish the accused since she did not deny the charge brought against her.

In her defence, Alonge told the court that her estranged lover dated her for over four years and promised to marry her, only for him to change his mind after falling in love with another woman in Abuja.

“I did that to teach him a bitter lesson because he refused to marry me after dating me for over four years.

“He fooled me and my parents and ditched me after finding a new lover here in Abuja. I live in Lagos with my parents,” she said.
