A middle aged public school teacher in Ibadan, Adeyinka Adelakun, on Thursday, narrated how his wife, Kafayat, poured boiling water on his manhood which seriously injured him.
Adelakun had approached an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court at Agodi in Ibadan seeking the dissolution of his three-year-old marriage to his wife on grounds of threat to life and constant fighting.
He also prayed the court to allow him to have in his custody their two-year –old child so that he could effectively take care of the child.
According to the plaintiff, Kafayat is in the habit of fighting him and threatening him whenever they have domestic issues to resolve.
“On Feb 27, 2016, she started her trouble as usual and I decided to call her mother on phone to caution her, but Kafayat brought a kettle of hot water from the kitchen and poured it on my genitals and chest.
“The pain was too much, I was rushed to the hospital due to the severe injuries I sustained and I stayed in the hospital for months.
