How did you sustain the injuries to your body?I was sleeping at home on the night of March 17. I wasn’t alone, my mother’s sister (aunty), was lying in between me and one of my siblings. The weather has been hot lately, so, to escape the heat we usually sleep outside, because it has become greatly uncomfortable to sleep indoors.
On that fateful night, around 10pm someone came into the compound, passed over my brother and my aunty and poured something that felt like a liquid on me. I immediately woke up and shouted, “Holy Ghost fire!” I saw the shadow of a man take flight. Then I started feeling a hot sensation all over me. I started to shout. My brothers who were sleeping indoors heard my cry and rushed out but the person who poured the acid on me had escaped. It was dark so we could not see the direction he went. headtopics.com
