Woman bathed with acid by fiancé dies

Twenty two-year-old Chika Egbo, who was bathed with acid by her fiancé, David Sulaimon, in Ikotun, Lagos, died at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, in the early hours of Thursday.
Her death is coming six weeks after the November 5 attack that left her without the use of her nose, eyes and mouth.
She was fed through a pipe, connected to her neck.
At the hospital on Thursday, Chika’s father, Matthew, stood at the front of the mortuary, looking forlorn.
Chika, a student of the Enugu State College of Education, fell in love with Sulaimon and had a child for him.
Their relationship had gone sour, after which Sulaimon allegedly invited her to Lagos from her Enugu base under the pretext that his mother wanted to see her.
Sulaimon poured a substance believed to be acid on Chika, resulting in extensive burns on the upper part of her body.
Chika underwent three surgeries to remove the destroyed tissues and reconstruct her face
May her gentle soul RIP...
