“She was our neighbour two years ago when we were in the same compound but due to the troubles she was giving the family, we relocated, and she also relocated. But along the line, where we moved to, she normally comes to disturb us and cause trouble.
“My father asked us to ignore her. He went to her husband to plead with him to prevail on her so that she could let us have peace. But the woman said she was seeing us in her dream and that we were chasing her.
“She always come to the place where I am learning a trade in fashion design to disturb me and the people around wanted to beat her up but I intervened and told them that my father asked us to ignore her.
“On June 4 when I was going to church in the morning, I saw her at the corner of a building. I passed her and ignored her. But on getting to the church premises, she appeared again and poured some liquid on me.“I did not know it was acid until my body started reacting to it, and my face started swelling. I was shouting and ran to a nearby place but there was no one around until I ran into the church where the church members helped me and brought me to the hospital.”
“She told us that she saw us in her dream, and that when she was pregnant, I ate the fetus. We have not had peace since then. And when the trouble became unbearable, my husband said we should pack out to another apartment.“But she traced us to the new apartment and was always laying ambush for us on the way. But my husband urged us to keep avoiding her for more than two years.“It got to an extent that she stabbed this same girl last year April at the same spot where she poured acid on her this year. We thought it was an issue of boyfriend as at last year but we were wrong.“She accused us of appearing in her dream to kill her and replace her with my daughter as the husband’s new wife. She has been attacking all of us because I saw her on the Saturdaybefore the incident and she was holding the same bucket of acid. Who knows, it could have been anybody in my family,” the mother of five said.
“We have been in the hospital for close to a month, the family of the suspect has not visited let alone contribute a penny to the treatment. The only day her husband came was when the police were around to take my daughter’s statement. So, we are appealing to everybody to assist us,” she added.
