Police Inspector arrested for attacking lady who rejected his love advance

A Police Inspector, Eze Akpoelu, has been arrested and detained by the Rivers State Police Command for inflicting fire injuries on a female resident of the state, Jane Amos.

According to a report published by The Punch Newspaper, a hot argument ensued between the lady and the Police officer at their residence in Rumuokwuta in the Onion/Akpor Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday.

It was gathered that the Policeman saw the lady’s behaviour as a sign of disrespect and out of anger threw a burning stove at her which burnt several parts of her body.

While narrating her ordeal on the hospital bed, the lady was quoted by the newspaper to have said: “This morning (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. He said I was stupid and I did not have respect.

“Because he had asked me out for friendship 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 that I was talking to him and that he would make me bleed. I said if he made me bleed, God in heaven would also make him bleed.

“Later, I came out to put my pot down from the stove because the food I was cooking was almost done. When I opened my door, 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,” she explained.

Confirming the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Grace Iringe-Koko, said the suspect had been detained and would be punished if found culpable.
