An accidental meeting between 24-year-old hair stylist, Miss Juliet
Osimen from Esan West Local Government Area, Edo State, and Austin, a
native of Emu-Unoh, Ndokwa West Area, Delta State, in Warri, glued them
together. Barely three years into the affair, Austin, shattered the
promising life of his lover with a cruel acid bath.
Today, after battling to survive with a year-long intensive care at the
University of Benin Teaching Hospital, UBTH, Benin, Edo State, Juliet
still requires over N5 million lifeline for a medical trip to Indian, as
she struggles to pick up the pieces of her devastated life.
in the beginning

According to Vanguard
Juliet met Austin while working at a fast food centre in the Niger Cat
neighbourhood of Ekpan, Delta State, where her father, Pastor Sunday
Osimen, farmer and Head at the Mountain of God’s Grace Ministry in the
area, also owns a modest home.

Recalling the good times, Juliet said:

“Austin was very generous in the relationship and often granted most of
the requests I made. As a result, I hardly hesitated when he started
making proposals for marriage and coming close to my family.

“When we met, he was living with his uncle at Nnewi Street, off Aka Avenue, Effurun.
“As the relationship grew, we rented a self-contained apartment at
satellite Ugolo community, Okpe Council area, where we shared privacy
occasionally, while I still lived with my parents.
‘My fears’
“Though, I cherished his uncommon generosity towards me and my siblings,
I started getting worried about the source of his income, which to me
did not connect with the generator repairs job he told me he does for a
“My suspicions were confirmed the day we went to Obiaruku for the
marriage of his friend. There is a particular bag he does not allow me
or anyone else touch at all.
“This fateful day, as he was having an after wedding drinking spree with
friends in the hotel we lodged, I opened the secret bag in our room.
“I was shocked by two items I found. An identity card as a Federal
Government Amnesty beneficiary and a document list of guns and other
dangerous weapons submitted by his group during the arms mop up.

“From that moment, my interest in the affair died and I wanted out
immediately. I knew I was living with an unrepentant criminal because he
is easily irritated and always bragging about how tough he is and how
he can deal with anyone and go away with it.


“That night at Obiaruku, I confronted him on his criminal identity and
why he kept it from me. He said he was worried I would leave him and he
does not want to lose me.
“That moment, I made it clear I was no longer interested and would not
marry a criminal disguising as repentant. I meant every word of it.

 “But I knew it was dangerous to make a sudden quit, so I started
limiting my contact with him and thinking of how best to stop the affair

“Then, I further learned that the man I was planning to marry is a father of three, married to a woman elsewhere.
“I confronted him. He admitted and again said he kept that from me for
fear of losing me. He said he could not do without me, so he wants me as
second wife. I said over my dead body.

… and the threats began

“As I gradually limited my contact with him, he introduced a catch
phrase whenever the issue of breaking the relationship came up.
“He would say, ‘You can’t leave me. If you try it, I will so damage you
that no man would want to look at you, so I will still be the only one
to marry you.’

“I could tell from his anger and tone, whenever he says it, that this
was no empty threat, but I needed to get out of the affair.
“I trained as a hair stylist and work for a salon owner, while also doing home service for some clients on Sundays.

“One Sunday, I was home fixing a customer’s hair when my phone rang. It was Austin’s call so I ignored it.

“Usually, he is very jealous and gets upset if he does not know my
whereabouts and cannot get me on the phone for a second and he can beat
me for that.

Pulling a knife; the acid bath

“At night at Ugolo that day, he pulled a knife from the kitchen,
threatening to kill me, saying he saw a man taking me out the period I
failed to pick his call.
“I was afraid he could harm me so I refused confrontation with him
before he dropped the knife. Next morning, he came to my work place
apologizing for his action after complaining to my madam.

 “The evening of the Monday (February 25, 2013) preceding the Sunday he
threatened me with a knife at Ugolo, I refused his calls again after
closing from work and went to my parents’ home.

“He then called my younger sister, asking if my parents were home. That was about midnight.
“It was very hot that night. At some minutes to 1am, February 26, I had
just my towel tied on me when I slept close to the window.

“Suddenly, I heard and felt a shower of liquid from outside through the
window. The person aimed and poured it all over my body as I lay faced
up.“Immediately, I started shouting, ‘Igwe (Austin) had poured acid on
me’ repeatedly and ran out as the liquid was burning my body. I saw him
running away.”

A father’s story
Her father, Pastor Osimen, said he and the wife, Caroline, were at their
farmhouse at Orega, along Sapele Road, where they farm most weekdays
before retiring home to the children and church service on Sunday, when
he got a distressing message.
He said:

 “I was contacted after she had been rushed to the Ekpan General
Hospital. I returned from the farming expedition and lodged complaint at
the Ekpan Police Division.
“We could not focus on the police case because saving my daughter’s life first was uppermost.
“From Ekpan General Hospital, she was referred to the Oghara Teaching
Hospital, Oghara in Delta State. From there, she was referred to the
University of Benin Teaching Hospital, UBTH, in Benin, Edo State.She was
under intensive care at UBTH for almost a year with the medical bill
rising to N2 million, way beyond my purse. But by some divine
intervention, some persons from the Edo State government, I guess, came
and settled the huge bill before she was discharged.”
