One Binta Bojang, a 45-year-old woman is currently in police custody for allegedly rubbing a toxic chemical, suspected to be an acid or ‘soda’ on her husband’s private part.
In an interview with The Fatu Network, police spokesman ASP Foday Conta, said the incident happened on Tuesday, 17 October at Brusubi, when the husband returned home after spending the night with his new wife.
ASP Conta explained: “When he returned home, the first wife asked him to sleep with her, but the husband said he could not because he was going to work. There was push and pull between the couple and the husband had no option but to succumb to her demand.
“When the husband agreed to sleep with her, she went into the bathroom, poured some toxic chemical on a towel and returned to the bedroom. She used the towel with the chemical on it to rub her husband’s private part pretending that she was cleaning it. The husband realised that something was not normal with his private part and he went into the bathroom and realised that his genitals were swelling. He asked his wife what she did to his private part, but his wife responded by saying that he will never sleep with the second wife ever again.”
The poor man was rushed to the Brusubi Police Station from where he was escorted to the hospital by the police, who later arrested his wife, the police spokesman explained.
“Initially the lady denied but after a thorough investigation and interrogation, she confessed,” he said.
ASP Conta said the accused said it was not her intention to go to that level and that she was blinded by jealousy.
Binta Bojang is being detained at Brusubi Police Station as police investigate the matter while her husband is admitted at the hospital.
