The Imo state police command arrested a 300-level student of the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) identified as Miracle Ogochukwu Chiagoziem for allegedly scalding her hostel mate, one Wisdom Uchenna Chukwuemeka, a 400 level student of Geology department, with hot water over a dispute they had.
According to reports, Miracle poured hot water on Chukwuemeka at their hostel in Eziobodo on Thursday afternoon, November 4, 2021, because he didn’t answer the door after she knocked to get toothpaste.
Miracle is reported to have created a scene in front of Chukwuemeka’s door even though he had company, before retiring to her room.
However, after she was confronted by Wisdom later, their argument became violent and she ended up emptying a pot of hot water on him. An eyewitness said;
“Wisdom later come out to confront her over her behavior, and an argument ensued. She threatened to pour hot water on him if he doesn’t leave. A lady even stepped in to pacify them but before she could say Jack, Miracle carried out her threat. She emptied a pot of hot water on both wisdom and the lady.
“He’s currently hospitalized, severely scarred. The water was targeted at his private part and now his genitals are completely peeled. He is currently at risk of missing his entire exams for the current semester which may result in an extra year for him.”
