According to national president of Welfare, Peace and Universal Human Rights Initiative, Comrade Chris Chidiadi, who said the lady was brought to his office for his organisation’s assistance, Okanume allegedly proposed to Nweke but she turned him down because her mother did not approve of the marriage.
“Okanume insisted that he must marry Nweke and when his repeated advances were turned down, he went to her house in Nibo and bathed her in the corrosive substance,” he said.
Chidiadi said that the victim was rushed to the hospital while police operatives arrested Okanume.
“She was stabilised and, after spending some weeks in the hospital, she was discharged. She has, however, been rendered physically incapacitated and needs some 2 million naira to go back for neck surgery before she can get back to normal, active life,” he said.
Her account details were given as Nkiruka Nweke; 590 687 3010, First City Monument Bank.
He also disclosed that the suspect had since been charged to court.
