Few weeks ago, it was reported that a jilted man, Olorunwa Ogundare vented his anger on his estranged lover, Shade Taiwo by using a broken bottle to damage one of her eyes in Lagos, PM Express has reported.
The sad incident took place at Ipodo Street in Ikeja, Lagos where they resided. According to the report, the victim’s left eye was forcefully plucked out with the bottle, which had partially blinded her as doctors said she cannot see with the eye again.
Police sources said the victim and the suspect were lovers until recently when they had disagreement and Taiwo left Ogundare for another person. However, her decision did not go down well with Ogundare who had earlier vowed that he will deal with her. But the victim did not know he had planned to blind her.
On the day the incident happened, they had little disagreement and Ogundare did not waste time before he picked a bottle, broke it, stabbed her on the eye and drew it out. She was then taken to a hospital where it was confirmed that the eye was badly damaged.
