A Ghanaian lady living in the United Kingdom has been jailed 14-years in prison for pouring acid on her boyfriend.
God have mercy on us, the Ghanaian lady who poured acid on her boyfriend in the United Kindom has finally been jailed for 14 years. This is sad but we can also learn from it, sometimes having patience is very important and it helps us to be sure of what we want to do.
I understand that when anger hits you hard it makes you do the unthinkable but let all try and exercise patience always.
This lady we are talking about goes by the name Esther Afrifa, she was reported and arrested for pouring acid on her boyfriend who is identified as Kelvin Pogo. The only reason we have available here is that the lady mistakenly believed that Kelvin was cheating with a university mate.
The 28-year-old lady bought a liter of sulphuric acid online and poured it on her boyfriend’s chest as he was sleeping.
To worsen his plight, she stopped the 29-year-old boyfriend from getting emergency treatment.
Over 4 hours later the angry lady attacked him again when he was laying on a sofa and poured more acid on his face and torso.
Judge Charles Bourne QC called it “a truly wicked thing to do” when slapping Esther Afrifa to 14 years in prison at the Harrow Crown Court.
“You prepared a weapon you knew would cause extremely severe disfiguring injuries and terrible pain. You armed yourself and deliberately followed through with that plan,” he said.
