Graphic photo: Woman bathed with acid by rejected lover

23 year old Blessing Ikhumhi, a student of Edo State School of Health Technology was bathed with acid by her ex-boyfriend Cyril Okosun after she ended things with him.

According to the story by Guardian, On March 23rd 2013, Cyril asked to speak with Blessing after she ended their relationship and thinking he wanted to talk reconciliation, she agreed to see him. He visited her house and as she went out to talk to him, he bathed her with acid.

Blessing is now blind in both eyes and battling to stay alive at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Benin City where she is a patient.

Read Blessing's account of what happened after the cut...



“He was my boyfriend and we had arguments in February. He beat me to the extent that I was not able to go to school for three days. I told him I was no longer interested in the relationship. He later tried to forcibly take my telephone, but I refused to give it to him. I told him he was not the one who bought it for me.”

“On March 23, he called and asked me to meet him in front of our house. I refused initially, but he insisted, so I came out. He asked: “Do you mean you don’t want me again?” I said: “No! I was no more interested in the relationship. And immediately, he poured the acid on my face.

Since that day, I have been on admission at the UBTH and the doctors say I might not see again except I am flown to India where my eyes could be restored."

“I never knew he would have the heart to pour acid on me. I made a mistake. I have learnt the biggest lesson of my life. My prayer now is that God should touch kind-hearted Nigerians to come to my aide so that I would be able to get treatment abroad, since my parents cannot afford it.”

Doctors in the hospital believe she may never see again except she is flown to a specialist hospital in India, where her sight could be restored.

Cyril Okosun is in police custody in Benin

How sad!! People just hide behind the facade of love, professing affections just to get what they want(sex,money), you can't love a woman and do this to her, if you really love her you would let her go, just like the saying... "If you love someone, set them free like a bird, if they come back, they are yours, if they don't come back they were never yours in the first place"

As pathetic as this is,the open-ended question is'Would this man be made to pay for this heinous crime?'why are women and children most often the victims of domestic violence and intimate partner violence?why isnt the Nigerian Government taking this issue seriously?until someting drastic is done about this and measures put in place to serve as a deterent for future offenders,am afraid this trend would continue. STOP VIOLENCE AGAISNT WOMEN PLS!!!!

I think acid should be banned in Nigeria. Don't understand why Nigerians would wake up one morning and bathe another human with acid. FFS she aint a lab-rat. More proof that some Nigerians are the devil in disguise.

And where is the animal that did that? Until we start paying evil for evil, people will not change their behaviour. I am not in support of jailing the animal that did that to the lady, acid should be poured on his face too, let him feel the pain the lady has gone through.
What a pity for the lady!

It's quite sad and unfortunate. I can't get over d fact dat it is only women dat are acid victims. Have u ever heard of any man dat has been bath by acid. Such things are more common in this part of d world. Some men are devil incarnate and suffer from a serious complex. It's a case of if I can't have her, no one else can. Do u know how many women are been dumped on daily basis. How come they don't bath d men with acid. May God protect us from these wolves in sheep,s clothings.

This thing happened to a friend of mine fa...and funny enough the boy also tried seizing her fone the uni (abu) paid for the girls treatment abroad and till today the boy hasn't been found. Women should be careful the men they date cause I know it may not be written on the persons face but always be watchful of people with a bad temper

Anonymous said...

Cause the system does NOT work or the women in violent/toxic relationships would rather cover up for their abusive and violent partners! They say african women should endure..we women need to start looking out for ourselves rather than be our own enemies. Such evil

This is wickedness,my advise to ladies is that when u r in a relationship dont take much from a guy i mean money and all stuffs bcos some ladies see it as opportunity whereas they dont have any feelings for the guy,if u breakup with sure guy he can turn back @ u and use acid etc on you.stay wise

CUNT..... that's all I can call the man who did this..... justice for this poor girl I don't know (seriously the boy's family even after he has been put away must be held accountable in some way for hospital bills and after care). If the police can go into a house and hold a member of someone's family pending when the suspect is found then the family of this cunt should be to an extent should be held accountable even when he is put away. The laws on acid buying/ acquiring need to be addressed like seriously.

Now hez serious with sm1 else but still wants to keep tabs on what m doin, my whereabouts n' stuff.
I stopped telling him.
Because my instincts tells me dat he aint done with me yet.
Well... Ild give him the MADEA comeback.

Ladies, let's try n' b observant who we date or make friends with.
Let's also learn self-defence.
U will definitely need it someday.

A man filled with rage can eida go take some air... Or beat you to a pulp
The funny thing is dat... Most pple will support him.
If he goes to jail, prob 4 a short wile.
1. Learn to kick some ass
2. Refer to Rule 1, datz all dere is.

These guys bathing women with acid deserve to live. But first remove his penis and testicles and give them to chop and down it his throat. Gorge out his eyes and tongue and let him chew them raw as well; cut his nose off and give it to him to chop; then wash his head in boiling hot water for ten minutes; i forgot to mention that his hands or legs could be amputated to finish off the make-over
