Ramatoulie Jarju stunned the neighbourhood of Sukuta Nema last Saturday after pouring heated cooking oil on her husband, Yusupha Badjie, scalding his legs.
Narrating the story to The Point, Police PRO, Secka, related that the couple had a domestic problem the day before, necessitating an ill-fated intercession by family members that failed to address the problem.
He revealed that the victim was reclining in bed out of apparent exhaustion from night duties when Ramatoulie, who was cooking, took the already heated oil and splashed it on Mr Badgie’s legs, causing him obvious bodily harm. PRO Secka further revealed that the man was thereafter taken to Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital (RVTH) where he was admitted until the following day.
Meanwhile Ramatoulie is said to be currently in detention, helping the police in their investigation.
The latest incident occurs barely five months after the conviction of Tabara Samba for causing the death of her husband by pouring hot oil on him.
