A Nigerian woman identified as Abosede Ajayi has been thrown in jail in the United Kingdom for raining bleach on the head of her supposed rival.
Abosede, 42, was said to have attacked her victim with a bottle of household bleach, emptying the content over her head.
The mother of two had gone berserk after finding her victim, Jane Ocran sitting in her convertible Mercedes outside her home on June 17 last year.
Abosede alleged that Ocran was having an affair with her husband. The former Ministry of Justice administrator repeatedly slapped and punched Ocran, before proceeding to batter her with a handbag.
The prosecutor, Polly Dyer told the court that Ocran was seriously injured in the attack, but was lucky her sunglasses protected her eyes from the bleach.
Dyer further told the court that Ocran denied ever having an affair with Ajayi’s husband.
Ocran, according to Dyer, claimed to have only just returned to Mr Ajayi’s home in Brixton after a day of shopping when Abosede showed up and started shouting at her: “‘you b*tch, sleeping with my husband, f***ing my husband’.”
“The defendant took off her own wig and used it to hit Ms Ocran, slapping and punching her a number of times in the head,” said Dyer.
“The defendant emptied the contents of the handbag into the street and then walked back inside her home.”
Passers-by were said to have rescued Ocran by dousing her face with water, before she was treated at a hospital for the soreness she suffered in her eyes.
Abosede’s defendant, Gerwyn Wise, said she had been a victim of domestic violence during her 16-year marriage, and her husband had openly embarked on several extra-marital affairs.
Judge Benedict Kelleher sentenced Ajayi to two years in prison, telling her: “This was a vicious attack that could have caused serious and disfiguring injuries.”
