A diamond dealer, one Amara, was last Monday disfigured with acid by one of his wives, Alima, at Tongo Fields because of a recorded message from his cell phone.
According to reports from Kenema, Alima made a call to her husband but it did not go through. She only heard the usual recording of “your call has been forwarded”.
Because of that message in which a woman’s voice is heard, Alima became infuriated; thinking that her husband was having an affair with another woman.
She then chartered a motor cycle (Okada) for Le100, 000 to take her to Tongo and back.
Armed with a bottle of acid, she arrived at Tongo and headed for her husband’s house and knocked on the door. And waited.
The husband, Amara, innocently opened the door and before he could ask any question, Alima splashed the acid on his face.
After her anger had run its course, Alima found out that Amara was the only person at home and that she had acted crazily. She then took to her heels and disappeared from the scene.
Amara was later taken to the Kenema hospital where he was admitted.
The victim’s other wife, after hearing about the incident, dashed to the hospital where she was unable to recognize her husband.
She fell down and fainted.
As both of them are now recuperating at the hospital, Alima is yet to be found.
