Chai! There’s crazy, then there’s just absolute crazy!!

I can just picture how the wife must have probably warned that burnt woman to “stay away from my husband, or else??” The angry stares, confrontations, plots, pacing from end to end plotting harm in spite. Everything, just crazy!


Some people say you never know what you can do, or who you become, when someone you love cheats on you.

I call crap!

There’s no amount of self-love or self-respect that would cause a person to act stupid, careless, and inhumane when being hurt.

I call crap.

Nothing justifies that.

The lack of self-control, wet with insecurities, you, are to blame for your actions, before and after. The devil needed a body, but you offered your soul too.

The prosecution said that the complainant is currently on admission being treated for burns.

The offence, he said, contravened Section 245 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 which carries seven years imprisonment for causing grievous harm.
