Odion, a middle-aged man, died in Edo State from serious burns caused by an alleged acid attack by his wife Becky.

Becky, 29, allegedly fled after allegedly soaking her husband in an acid-like liquid while he was sleeping, according to LIB.

On Sunday, November 14, near Idemudia Street, off Omomon Road, St. Saviour Road, Benin City, an incident occurred.

Odion died at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital about 2 a.m., according to Standard Gazette (UBTH)


Esohe Fidelis, who spoke to SG at the St. Saviour Police station, where she complained about her brother’s murder, said that the family had concluded a plan to resolve the financial issue between the couple before the incident.

“Becky threatened on Friday last week that she will cripple my brother, and now l can see that she has finally killed him. I was in the hospital where my brother was receiving treatment, and he suddenly died on Monday around 2 am. I want the police to please help find Becky, who has escaped, and she should be arrested and made to face the law.” she said.

The landlady of the house, Mrs Patience Idemudia, said the couple had always quarrelled and settled.

“This man that died has been in my house for four years with the woman, and they both have a child. I really want the police to thoroughly investigate the incident and bring the culprit to justice.” she added.
