A man identified as Bello Soliu died at a Fulani settlement located at Iyana Ilewo in Abeokuta North Local Government Area of Ogun state after his wife, Ramota Soliu poured hot water on him.
Salemgists gathered that Ramota who fled her matrimonial home has two kids with the deceased in their 6 years of marriage.
It was also gathered that Bello had on Friday invited some relatives to help in talking to his wife, who he said was fond of starving him and an Arabic student living with them.
The fleeing woman allegedly woke up Saturday morning, boiled water and bathed her husband with it.
Usman Saliu, a brother to the deceased, said:
“My brother has always been complaining about Ramota. She had a habit of starving an Arabic student living with them. Sometimes, she would not serve my brother food too.
“For peace to reign, Bello invited us to talk to his wife. People waded in on Friday, talked to her, but she didn’t say anything in response.
“Very early Saturday morning, she woke up and started boiling water. People thought she wanted to make amala or ogi. The water was on fire for like one hour. All of a sudden, we heard a loud noise from her husband quarters where he was sleeping.
“We rushed down to see what was happening, and we discovered that the woman had bathed our brother with the water she boiled. His body was already peeling.
“We rushed him to a hospital at Rounder in Abeokuta, but he was rejected. We took him somewhere else. But he eventually died Tuesday evening.
