In her agony, she recounted what transpired to Crime Check TV reporter. In her narration, the jealous ex-lover had thrown her out of his appointment some weeks ago after some minor misunderstanding.
She had relocated with her kids to the father's house only for her to be visited by the ex-lover to assault her. The young man [whose name is yet to be identified] came to the house under the pretext of seeking forgiveness and invite the wife to his apartment.
Florence was in the bathroom and was just about stepping out to dress, when the ex-lover pounce on her and poured the acidic substance on her face.
