According to the statement, upon the report, the Area Commander, ACP Muhideen Obe, quickly directed his JWC Section to effect the arrest of the woman.

‘’On interrogation, Awodele explained to the police how her husband is a fund of coming home drunk always without contributing anything to the welfare of her and the children, ‘’said the statement.Loading…

‘’She stated further that on that fateful day, the husband came home drunk as usual, and while she was complaining about the act of drunkenness, the man started insulting her and her parents, which infuriated her and made her bath the man with the hot water.’’‘’
