Policeman Arrested For Attacking Lady With Burning Stove In Rivers

A police inspector, identified as Eze Akpoelu, has been arrested after allegedly attacking and injuring a lady, Jane Amos in Rivers State.

According to PUNCH, the man attacked the lady after she reportedly turned down his request for a relationship. The cop was said to have thrown a burning stove at her, which made her sustain burns in parts of her body.

The incident occurred at the Rumuokwuta, in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers and it was gathered that the inspector, who resides in the same compound with her, attacked her on Wednesday.

The wounded lady said; "On Wednesday, I went to the bathroom to bathe my niece for school and Inspector Eze Akpoelu was in the bathroom, bathing. So, I went to bathe her outside."

“He came out and said I was challenging him. He said he had warned that nobody should pour water outside. I did not make any comment. I took my niece into the bathroom."

“Because he had asked me out and I refused, since then he had been hostile and I kept avoiding him.

“After I finished bathing my niece and went inside, he started saying he would make me bleed. I said if he made me bleed, God in heaven would also make him bleed."

“Later, I came out and I saw him by my door. He seized me and held me tight by my neck. He poured what I was cooking away, carried the burning stove and poured it on me.”

The Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer, Grace Iringe-Koko, had said the suspect has been arrested and detained.

The Police PRO added that investigation has commenced and if he is found culpable, he will be punished.
