Man pours pot of boiling stew and lighted stove on girlfriend

Culled from Punch
A 27-year-old woman, Mary Sunday, has been in the hospital bed at Igbobi Orthopaedic Hospital seven months after she was allegedly attacked by her fiancé, Corporal Isaac Gbanwuan, with a pot of boiling stew and a lighted stove. It was learnt that Sunday had lost her ears due to the attack.
Before the attack, which took place in August 2012, Sunday, was to report for training at the Police Academy, Kano as a cadet officer.
See more after the cut...



Still nursing severe burns to  her neck, chest and upper arms, Sunday can barely sit or walk straight. She holds her head stiffly and talks with difficulty as she recalled the events that led to her present state to PUNCH Metro on Wednesday.

She said, “I have known Gbanwuan for a while, while I was still a student at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, but it wasn’t until our marriage introduction in 2011 that I moved in with him at the Pedro Police Barracks, Lagos.

“On the day I was assaulted, Gbanwuan and I went to see our doctor. We had some health issues. While we were on our way back home, I made a phone call. Immediately we got home, Gbanwuan started querying me. He accused me of keeping lovers and claimed the person I called was my lover.
“I tried to explain to him that it was my sister I called, but Gbanwuam was not listening. He began to beat me,” Sunday said.

Unable to take it any more, Sunday said she ran into the kitchen of a neighbour with Gbanwuan giving pursuit. He allegedly broke into the kitchen where he continued to assault Sunday.

She said, “Then to the horror of those who tried to intervene, Gbanwuan seized his neighbour’s cooking stove on which was a pot of boiling stew, emptying the entire contents on me.
“I don’t know for how long I was unconscious but I was later told that I was in a coma for seven days. I learnt the stove also exploded after Gbanwuan threw it with the boiling soup at me.
“I was first rushed to a private hospital at Bariga before I was eventually transferred to Igbobi hospital.

“I couldn’t tell my family for a while because I could not use my hands; they were sort of stuck to my chest. It was after much treatment, that I was able to use my hands and call my family.”
Sunday’s lawyer, Mr. Moses Kassim, told PUNCH Metro that a petition had already been sent to the Police Provost Office and the Commissioner of Police.

He said, “We have still not received any response from either of them. Gbanwuan is yet to be arrested despite the fact that Sunday’s family reported the case at the Pedro Police Division.

“While Sunday is confined to a hospital bed, Gbanwuan is still at his duty post at the Ebutte Ero division, showing no concern for her condition.”

Copies of the acknowledged petition received by the Provost Office and Commissioner of Police were dated January 17, 2013.

When PUNCH Metro contacted Gbanwaun, he denied causing any harm to his fiancée.
He said, “What Sunday has told you are all lies. She has been going about saying all sorts of things about me.

“That is how she wrote a petition through her lawyer to the Lagos State Police Command. Anyway, the matter is already being investigated by the command.”
When our correspondent sought his opinion on how Sunday got her injury that had kept her in the hospital, the policeman said, “I don’t know what to tell you. Like I said, the matter is being investigated.

The Lagos Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Damascus Ozoani, said he was yet to be fully briefed on the issue.

He said, “I don’t have all the facts right now. Let me investigate and I will respond to the story.”
But Sunday said she was more concerned with getting well.

She said, “All I want is the money to treat myself. My doctors are afraid to tell me how much because they don’t want me to be worried, but I have overhead them discussing several times.

“There is a deep wound in my chest which has to be treated and then my neck has to be operated on because it has been stiff since the incident and then there is the matter of my upper arms.

“The doctor, who attended to me at the first hospital I went to in Bariga, told me that I would have to go to India to have my ears reconstructed because they melted. He said I would need N5m.

“Gbanwaun’s family has abandoned me. They did so immediately my family reported the matter to the police. My mother is dead and my father is aged. Coping with my daily treatment here is a struggle for my siblings.”

So sad to read the lines. I feel her pains anyway. Ladies, please, life has no part 2. Move out of any abusive relationship. Your life is more important. Imagine the lunatic walking free on the road. I pray God grant her divine healing.

I am sorry for what ever that happened to you. You are still hiding a lot of things despite your condition. You and your lover or someone that wanted to marry you went for a medical test, and the test turned out bad. Either you infected him with a disease, which you refused to say. At same time while leaving the hospital you made a phone call. And your body language in which you received that call could have spoken a lot. So he became angry and decided to destroy you because you have already destroyed him with the medical result he got from the hospital.
I am sorry that he went so far. Just that at that moment you wouldn't have answered any call until the situation has died out.
Take heart and I wish you full recovery.

What kind of health issues took em both 2 d hosp nd why did he get furious oh their way back accusing her of keeping lovers?? Jst saying. But whatever d case his behaviour is unforgivable nd justice should be melted out accordingly

RNC said...

So the accused is roaming around town like nothing happened & the police can't arrest him?! What kind of messed up story is this? The incident happened in a neighbour's house...obviously there are witnesses!

Also why was the woman running from the man? Was she not meant to join the force also? She should have faced him squarely and fought back! Most times, men are bullies and if you don't stand your ground, they will forever walk all over you or even worse kill u.

She is lucky we live in a country where citizens help each other out. I believe someone will come to her aid very soon. Didn't the Super Eagles get so much money for bringing a Gold cup back to Naija after 19years.... Nothing is impossible.... Maybe it's even the team that will come to her aid... Dunno. So sorry about the incident. That man must be brought to justice!

Okay, I'm going to vent! I'm a male & I'm reading more & more stories of 9ja men assaulting women in some cases even leading to their death & abosolutely nothing happens to these assilant! There's something fundamentally & morally wrong with the Nigerian society at large, how long can we sit by & watch our women being continually treated like second citizens in our society? So this guys assualts thiz woman to the point of almost killing her yet his sorry arse is still roaming around free & working for the NPF that's suppose to serve & protect!
This guy at the minimum should be locked & not roaming the streets with another opportunity to harm someone else. Until we begin to make examples of dudes that commit barbaric acts like this, our women are in some deep shit!!

Marriage is beautiful but not everyone deserves it,certainly not dat retard of a policeman.ladies be careful ,marriage is not for everyone and is not by force.shine ur eye,no dulling

I remember a case here in the US, when one guy killed a lady. When police asked the man what happened, the man replied that the lady killed him and therefore he killed her back instantly by putting a kitchen knife through her heart and that he felt good afterwards. Apparently what happened was that the girl was HIV positive and did not tell the guy, and after so many months of sex the guy saw the lady taking HIV medications one day. When the guy asked the lady why didn't she tell him about her HIV status, the lady replied " DON'T WORRY HONEY, HAVING HIV IS NOT THAT BAD ". The guy went to the kitchen, took a very long kitchen knife and plunged it into the the heart of the lady.

Real life story. If u dont believe me, google it.

Bottom line is: ladies if u are afflicted with any disease or diseases please disclose this to your sexual partner or partners to prevent cases like this.

Me, I have no pity for men or women who intentionally infect their partners with incurable diseases.

Miss flavia, how could u be so dumb? "Introduction isn't marriage"? Is that d issue, whether they were engaged or married, does it give the animal called man the rite to such wickedness?@anon feb 14,7.27pm. I'm sure u r d devil himself. Even if she infected him wit a terminal disease, does it also give him d rite? Wickedness is wickedness! Some men infect dia partners, they knw they r infected but the day d woman finds out, they blame her. Dia r all sorts of abusive meted out on women. This is so unfair. If she was a General's daughter or a politician's daughter, that man would be a living corpse by now.. There is so much injustice in this country. It pains my heart. How can? Smh... May God heal her and send her helpers. LADIES BEWARE of hot tempered men. Today he slaps u, tomorow he hits u more,the nxt... They don't stop...its so sad.
