Jealous woman bathes lover with acid in Calabar 3 
 The police in Calabar, Cross River State, have arrested a nurse, Dorothy Hayford Nkanu, who allegedly poured acid on her lover, Edmund Educhukwu (pictured above) on suspicion that he was dating another lady.
Neighbours later rushed Edmund to
the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, UCTH, where doctors have
been battling to save his badly damaged face and left eye. The right eye
was damaged beyond redemption.

Narrating his ordeal at the Intensive Care Unit of the UCTH, the final year student of Education Technology in the Faculty of Education at the University of Calabar said he and Dorothy have been lovers for some years  and that they spent the night before the day of the attack together.
“We even had passionate sex that night.  It was in the morning that she did this to me without any fight”.
On what may have prompted the lady to inflict such damage on his body, he said that “Dorothy had once complained that some people had told her that I was dating another lady whom I intend to marry
and abandon her after these several years together.  But I reassured
her that it was not true that people were only trying to destroy our
relationship.  It did not occur to me that she was still harbouring the
grudge”,
he said.
He said the morning the incident happened, they woke from bed without any sign of trouble and he led her on morning devotion. “It
was when I was rounding off the prayers with my eyes still shut that
she sneaked out and brought the paint rubber where she hid the acid and
poured it on me.”
He
said his girlfriend who is from Agwagwune in Biase area, Cross River
State attacked him while he was not wearing a shirt, so that the acid
would have maximum impact on his body.
After pouring the acid on me she said “if
the God you are praying to supports your plan, I will now see the woman
that will accept you with your eyes blind and face destroyed’ and she
ran away”.
Doctors at the UCTH confirmed that one of Edmund’s eyes had been completely destroyed while the second one could be salvaged.
“He
needs a skin transplant and adequate care for the other eye to be
restored at least for him to see with it and that cannot be done here
but outside this country, perhaps in UK or USA”,
PMNews source said.

DSP John Umoh, the Public Relations Officer for the Cross River Police Command said the woman has been arrested and is currently in detention.
