19-year-old female student of the Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, simply identified as Yetunde, is cooling off in the custody of the state Police command, Osogbo, for allegedly pouring hot water on her boyfriend, Niyi Adelana.
All because Niyi her boyfriend had invited other girls and failed to give her adequate attention during his birthday party.
Reports say Niyi celebrated his birthday last Saturday and had invited some of his friends mostly ladies to his birthday party, a situation that did not go down well with his girlfriend, Yetunde.
However, when the party ended, Niyi made attempts to pacify his lover (Yetunde) but the angry girl was furious and instead drenched him with a pot of boiled water.
The agonized boy screamed and this drew the attention of other students in the hostel to the scene.
The incident took another unfortunate dimension as Niyi’s ailing father; Pa Adelana who was receiving medical treatment in a hospital in Abeokuta, Ogun State reportedly gave up the ghost immediately he received the news that his son was bathed with hot water.
Police sources confirmed the story and say investigation is on.
When contacted, the Media Relations Officer of the institution, Mr. Tope Abiola said that the management could not do anything about the incident because it took place outside the campus of the institution .
“It’s very unfortunate and we sympathize with the victim and his parents.
“It’s a criminal act; the school does not have power over it. It all happened in Iree town, so, there is nothing the school can do about it.
“Notwithstanding, we urge the law enforcement agency to investigate the matter.”
