Na wa o. Now while I do NOT support or agree with her actions in any shape or form, the guy did what quite a number of guys tend to be guilty of. How do you date someone for 4 years, promise her marriage and even get to know the parents and then do something like this? You could not tell her character after 1 year? Why string her along for so long?
And on her part, she is only 25 for Pete’s sake. She still has her whole life to look for and possibly fall in love with someone who is more worthy of her. She will now forever have this stigma attached to her name with the possibility of frightening off potential suitors.

A 25-year-old woman identified as Victoria Alonge was, on Monday, sentenced to one-year in jail by a Karu Senior Magistrate court for pouring hot oil on her boyfriend, Roland Nna, over his refusal to marry her.
The Senior Magistrate, Omolola Akindele, summarily sentenced Alonge without an option of fine after the convict admitted to the court that she committed the offence.
Alonge was arraigned on a one-count charge of causing grievous harm to Nna, her boyfriend, who resides in Kurudu, Abuja.
The Police prosecutor, Cpl. Paschal Njoku, had earlier told the court that Nna reported the incident at Kurudu Police Station on August 11.
The prosecutor told the court that Alonge went to Nna’s house at about 4:30 a.m. on the fateful day and poured hot oil on him while he was asleep, resulting in grievous injury.
He said she was immediately arrested by the police, after which she confessed to the crime.
Njoku said that while in detention, Alonge threatened to inflict more harm on the victim.
The prosecutor, however, urged the court to summarily punish the accused because she did not deny the charge brought against her.
In her defence, Alonge told the court that her estranged lover dated her for over four years and promised to marry her, only for him to change his mind after falling in love with another woman in Abuja.
“I did that to teach him a bitter lesson because he refused to marry me after dating me for over four years,” Alonge said. “He fooled me and my parents and ditched me after finding a new lover here in Abuja. I live in Lagos with my parents.”
