June 10, 2013 – Jilted Man Attacks Ex-Girlfriend With Raw Acid In Benin City, Edo State

Medical doctors at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, UBTH, are battling to give succour to a middle-aged woman, Blessing Ikhumuhi, following an acid bath on her face by her erstwhile lover.

Blessing who until the 9 April this year, was bubbling with life, was bathed with raw acid by 22-year-old Cyril Okosun a few days after she informed him of her decision to quit their romantic relationship at her Dumez-road residence in Benin City.

Following the attack, Cyril was arrested and charged before Ikpoba Okha Area Customary Court, Idogbo.

When the case came up for mentioning on Monday, Counsel to the accused, Fidelis Oriafo, pleaded with the Court to grant his client bail, but the Prosecutor, Inspector Victor Ehiorobo, objected to the bail on the grounds that the victim, was still in a critical condition at the UBTH.

President of the Court, Princess Esther Eweka, who rejected the bail plea, ordered that the acused be remanded in prison custody until the 23 July, 2013, when the plea for bail will come up for determination.

  1. eye for eye finish nd he get bail, after he have same Acid barth like the gal, he can get bail and work out free in prisin when he look same like the poor gal in pain.

  2. He shd be killed without any trials! What is the big deal if a woman says she is not interested in a relationship again? Before he met the lady was he not in a relationship? Even if he wasnt, that was not enough reason to bathe a fellow human being with raw acid. If she were his younger sister, will he be happy to see her suffer such a high level of wickedness? This madness is getting too much in this nation and the earlier we tackle it decisively the better for all and sundry. I was jilted by a lady I dated for four good years; whose parents knew me and vice versa but when she declared her intention to go, I had to let her go, even though I suffered the pain for another one year without any relationship. Today, I’m happily married with lovely kids. If had taken one naughty step then, one would have live to regret it for life.

  3. The guy must not go unpunished, he must take care of the girl in the hospital, take care of all her bills,cater for her needs and make sure she is always there with him since he does not want her to leave him, he must be there with her till she gets married. He is just a wicked soul who deserved to be dead.
