One Imabong William has landed in a hospital after she was doused in hot water mixed with pepper by her land lady over her inability to meet up with her rental obligation.

The land lady identified as Amaka Okonkwo allegedly carried out the heinous act after William failed to leave her house upon the expiration of the quit notice she (the landlady) gave her.

The incident happened on Thursday at Enugwu-Ukwu community in Njikoka Local Government Area of Enugu state.

Okonkwo had given William given quit notice over her inability to pay a new rent imposed on tenants in the building.

She had, however, asked for time to find a new apartment, before her landlady poured hot water mixed with pepper on her.

The landlady had since been arrested by the police, after neighbours reported her action at Nimo police Station.

Sources within the community said the victim, who hails from Akwa Ibom State, was already receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital, after neighbours rescued her.

Anambra State Commissioner for Women’s Affairs, Mrs Ify Obinabo, who visited the victim, narrated that the victim stated that she was asked to vacate the house over her inability to pay the new rent increment.

She explained that she pleaded with the landlady for some time to enable her get a new place, but unfortunately, while she was washing her clothes on Thursday, the said landlady poured hot water mixed with pepper on her from behind.

Obinabo expressed her displeasure over the incident and promised to get justice for the victim.

She warned that the Anambra State Government will not take lightly anyone found culpable of assault of any kind and went on to advise the public to always report crimes and misdemeanours through the appropriate channels for quick intervention.
