A 31-year-old Edo State born woman who is identified as Marbel Mark is pointing an accusing finger on the wife of a native doctor she patronizes in Nigeria for pouring her acid out of jealousy.
According to Vanguard, Marbel is a Spain-based woman married to a Delta state born man whose base is also in Spain. Marbel had visited Nigeria in last year’s October 2015 for holiday and while she was in her country home in Edo state, she decided to employ the services of a native doctor at Sakpota Road in Benin City.
In the process of her business engagement with the native doctor, the native doctor’s wife became nervous of her frequent visits. She indicted Marbel of having an affair with her husband. However, Marbel denied the allegation but the native doctor’s wife was opinionated, so she did not trust her.
In accordance with Marbel, the native doctor’s wife was scared that she was out to entice her husband and elope with him to Spain. Meanwhile, the wife of the native doctor got her husband’s number in Spain and reported the matter to him causing the issue to create a serious misunderstanding between Marbel and her husband.
The case between Marbel and the native doctor’s wife was blown out of proportion when some unknown individuals entered a salon where Marbel was making her hair and showered her with acid on her face. Marbel was hurried to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) for medical treatment and subsequently, she was flown back to her base in Spain for surgery. While in the face of her tragedy, the victim, Marbel sued her husband for divorce which was granted by a court in Spain.
Marbel Mark however has been seeking justice to be done. In a telephone interview with her, she appealed for justice from Edo state police command. She said that those penetrated such an inhumane act should be brought to book. She pleaded that investigations should be accelerated to fish out those people from their hiding place because justice delayed is justice denied. She recounted her horrible experience with her state of health and also emphasized that she has paid so hugely for her hospital bills. She revealed that life has become very frustrating but she thanked God for his mercies.
However, the wife of the native doctor has been invited by the Edo state police command. Abiodun Osifo who is the Spokesman for the state Police Command has called on individuals with useful information about the suspects to report to them.
